Senior Mobile Software Quality Analyst / SDET

  • San Francisco, CA, United States
  • Full-time

Company Description

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.

Job Description

The Square Point of Sale (SPOS) team owns Square's flagship product for sellers. When you go into a coffee shop and sign with your finger on an iPad or Square Register, you're using SPOS. We have the privilege of building tools that help millions of sellers do their job every day.

The SPOS team focuses on building features that work for sellers of all sizes and business types – from the plumber down the street, to your local flower shop, to the multi-store coffee shop with 10s or even 100s of employees. The hardware that the SPOS app runs on is designed to match this diversity – our features work on everything from an iPhone up to our own Square Register hardware, and everything in between.

We're looking for an experienced and passionate Software QA Analyst to improve and find major problems in the features developed by our growing engineering teams. You will review product requirement documents, design specifications, and lead development of the test plans. You will come up with the manual and automated test suites for the Point of Sale system. You will report to the QA lead and work with product management, design, and engineering teams to ensure the quality test criteria are met before shipping the final product.

You Will:

  • Work side-by-side with developers and peers to create test plans for new features on Android, iOS & Squid devices
  • Define and track important quality metrics to guide quality improvements
  • Coordinate testing efforts for major new features
  • Escalate important bugs and working with developers to prioritize fixes
  • Provide feedback on new features before integrating them into future releases
  • Come up, implement and refine automation strategy, add framework enhancements, increase automation coverage and other testing practices to improve the current QA process to help increase the productivity and efficiency of the Engineering teams


You Have:

  • 5+ years of relevant QA technical experience with at least 3+ years of experience in mobile device testing on iOS and Android including phones and tablets
  • Experience in Native App automation testing frameworks such as Espresso, XCUITest/XCTest, KIF
  • Experience in code/scripting language such as Swift or Java or Python or Ruby or Kotlin
  • Experience working with CI systems (Jenkins, Buildkite)
  • Experience working in an Agile / Scrum development environment
  • Experience creating concise test suites
  • Liaison with Product teams, Engineering teams, and QA teams
  • Experience working through technical issues to both engineers and product managers
