Company Description

We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.

Job Description

We are looking for a platform-focused full-stack engineer to join our Payment Permissions Team. Our work is key to enabling our merchants to take payments with Square. We’re responsible for ensuring that we know who we’re doing business with, and that we are able to keep up to date with our merchants as their businesses change and grow. Customers rely on this platform to keep track of the sensitive details of their business, to manage who can make changes, and to make it painless to stay within the bounds of the law regardless of how their business evolves.

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 work to further our dream of supporting any merchant, anywhere.

Qualifications

  • Experience with Ruby, Go, or JavaScript
  • Experience contributing to medium to large scale feature releases

  • Knowledge of payments or fintech

  • Great communication skills and enjoy working cross-functionally

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Ruby on Rails, Go, React, TypeScript and more

  • MySQL

  • Protocol Buffers

  • AWS and other cloud platforms
