Senior Software Engineer, Square Checking
- Washington, DC, USA
- 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 Square Checking team helps them manage their business finances by enabling instant access to sales revenue and directly providing banking tools, including bank account numbers and mobile check deposits. Our team and product integrate with other Square cash flow tools, including Payments, Square Debit Card, Savings, Loans, Instant Transfers, Bill Pay, Payroll, financial reporting, and more. This suite of products ensures that our customers 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.
We are a product-focused engineering team with a full-stack background. Our projects use data-driven decisions to deliver features across mobile and web front-ends. We also talk directly to 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 focus on building entirely new backend systems to power new Checking offerings at a significant scale. You'll work with mobile, backend, and frontend-focused engineers to bring high-value banking features to Square merchants.
