Software Engineer, Business Banking
- Toronto, ON, Canada
- Employees can work remotely
Since we first opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely – and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take a payment and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together. So we expanded into software and started building integrated, omnichannel solutions – to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, run a busy kitchen, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. And across it all, we’ve embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow all in one place.
Today, we’re a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex commerce operations, sellers just starting out, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers scale, so do our solutions. We all grow together.
There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a business that is big, meaningful, and lasting. And we are helping sellers around the world do the same.
When our merchants make a sale, the Business Banking team helps them manage and understand their business finances with products that include Square Card, Instant Transfers, account and routing numbers, advanced reporting, and cash flow insights. With this suite of products, we ensure that our customers get access to the funds they need when they need them, and that they can always understand and control where their money is going. We partner with platform and infrastructure teams to move billions of dollars each year on behalf of our merchants.
In this role, you’ll build and scale high-performance backend services, help power world-class front-end experiences within our web-based and mobile products, and contribute to the future of banking.
We are a product-focused engineering team with a full-stack background. Our projects leverage data-driven decisions to deliver features across mobile and web frontends. We also talk directly to existing and prospective merchants about their needs and pain to identify opportunities to improve their experience. Our team enjoys working together to contribute to meaningful work seen by millions of merchants worldwide. As a member of the team, you’ll be working collaboratively with mobile, backend and frontend focused engineers to deliver high-value banking features to Square merchants.
