Senior Software Engineer - Cash App Pay

  • Seattle, WA
  • Employees can work remotely
  • Full-time

Company Description

It all started with an idea at Square in 2013. Initially built to take the pain out of peer-to-peer payments, Cash App has gone from a simple product with a single purpose to a dynamic app, bringing a better way to send, spend, invest, and save to our millions of monthly active users. We want to make the world’s relationship with money more relatable, instantly available, and universally accessible. This is our mission, and it’s why working at Cash App means so much more than a job.

Today, Cash App has thousands of employees working globally across office and remote locations, with a culture geared toward creativity, collaboration and impact. We’ve been a distributed team since day one, and we’ve got offices and remote teammates across the globe. Our offices are great, but many of our roles can be done remotely from the countries where Cash App operates. No matter the location, we tailor our experience to ensure our employees are creative, productive, and happy.

Job Description

The Commerce team is building new payment experiences on Cash App that leverages our vast omni-channel Seller ecosystem at Square and beyond. We make this possible via an OAuth 2.0 based API to empower the consumer in what is traditionally a merchant and bank-controlled world. For a demo of the payment experience, check out shop.cash.app

As a software engineer on the Payments team, you will be responsible for designing, building, and maintaining the Payments Platform services and infrastructure that moves money for these new Cash App payment experiences. You will be deeply involved in the technical details of building highly available and reliable services, while also working with product teams to build new capabilities for our customers, partners, and merchants as we scale across the world.  You'll be joining the founding team early in the product life cycle (no legacy work here!), with plenty of opportunities to continue shaping it from an engineering and product-perspective.

  • Own the design, development, and maintenance of new features and existing systems
  • Lift the skills and expertise of others on the team as a technical leader
  • Design and implement high-volume, low-latency, distributed transaction processing systems, making thoughtful tradeoffs between consistency and availability when both are not possible
  • Build systems that manage customers’ sensitive data and hold Cash App to the highest standards for security and compliance
  • See the big picture to design fault tolerant systems so the team can be brave, move fast, and break things, without showing a negative impact to customers

Qualifications

You have:

  • 8 or more years of software development or equivalent experience
  • Well-developed curiosity
  • Taken technical initiative and leadership on previous projects
  • Worked on products that are widely used and find it rewarding to build for consumers
