Senior Software Engineer (Frontend), Invoices - Bill Pay

  • Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Full-time

Company Description

Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

Job Description

Square Bill Pay is a new standalone product initiative to help small businesses organize and streamline payments to their vendors and suppliers. To run their operations, small businesses pay many bills/invoices and expenses, a.k.a. accounts payable (AP). These bills and invoices are usually paper-based and require payments in a variety of methods (e.g. check / ACH), making the bill pay process tedious and time consuming. Similar to how Square has made the “getting paid” job easier for small businesses, we have a great opportunity to build an equally remarkable solution for the “paying others” job. In two years, we aspire to have launched and grown Square Bill Pay into a leading accounts payable solution. Bill Pay will integrate deeply with the Square ecosystem, especially our emerging banking products, to save sellers time and money with paying bills, and help them manage their cash flow better.

 

Our team is newly formed and this is an opportunity to tackle a greenfield product from ideation to launch. You will be responsible for owning major architectural decisions, implementing critical functionality, and helping drive our product vision.

  • Hold yourself, and your teammates accountable to the standards of engineering and ethics that enables Square to safely move billions of dollars in payments and allow our customers to trust us with their sensitive data.

  • Help empower a team of engineers by mentoring individuals, cultivating pragmatic engineering decision-making, and leveraging your technical expertise to constantly raise the quality of design decisions and implementation by holding the team to a high standard.

  • 5+ years of experience developing production software
  • Experience leading or contributing to medium-to-large feature releases; usually multi-person projects that cross engineering team boundaries
