React Native Engineer - Afterpay, Cash App
It all started with an idea at Block 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 ecosystem, developing unique financial products, including Afterpay/Clearpay, to provide a better way to send, spend, invest, borrow and save to our 47 million monthly active customers. We want to redefine the world’s relationship with money to make it more relatable, instantly available, and universally accessible.
Today, Cash App has thousands of employees working globally across office and remote locations, with a culture geared toward innovation, collaboration and impact. We’ve been a distributed team since day one, and 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.

Afterpay is transforming the way we pay by allowing customers to buy products immediately and pay for their purchases over four installments. Started as a checkout solution on merchant websites, we now have our own app which millions of customers use regularly. Not only do we offer easy access to in-network merchants from our mobile app, we also have app exclusive merchants and gift cards that customers can shop right from our app.
As part of the mobile engineering team for Afterpay, you’ll develop entirely new consumer facing products, and enhance our existing ones. You will build platforms that scale to address high-priority product needs. In our fast paced environment, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to collaborate and grow while working through design, execution, and maintenance of our new products. You will work with internal teams and external partners to ensure the solutions you develop deliver first-in-class products.
