Square, Austin TX, US

Square works for every business.

Duration: Full-Time


Job Description

As Square's business continues to experience growth, these teams serve the heart of the business, allowing Square product teams and third parties to build safe, scalable, and reliable products. We are looking for software engineers who feel comfortable in all parts of the stack to join our Atlanta office. Here are some of our teams:

Payments

  • The Payment Acceptance team owns the core of Square’s online payments stack and operates it at a massive scale. 
  • We provide APIs for first and third parties to access our platform.
  • We move money between customers, credit card processors, and banks quickly, reliably, and securely – and our ambition is to make this easy.
  • We solve several technical challenges: Security and privacy, monitoring, re-architecting for the future, scalability, supporting payment methods such as cryptocurrency, 3DS, ACH, and support Square's expansion to support new payment types in international markets.
  • We are a backend service team, and use Java on Square's Linux servers and cloud platforms along with technologies like Guice, Guava, Protocol Buffers, jOOQ, MySQL, Kafka, AWS and GCP.

Prices

  • The Prices team manages tools that help Square merchants set prices, manage taxes, and provide discounts to their customers.
  • We are a full-stack team, delivering features through Mobile, Web, and API across nearly all of Square’s products.
  • We are reinventing Square’s models for pricing and taxes, building flexible primitives to manage complex needs.
  • We also own Square’s subscription platform, managing all subscriptions, usage, and billing.
  • We use Java / Kotlin on Android, Objective-C / Swift on iOS, Javascript and Ember on the web, and Java and Ruby on the server. 

Orders

  • We are a team that ties together many software components across Square, including Payments, Prices and Catalog, allowing developers to quickly combine all components to develop new features on top of Square’s platform.
  • Our Order Platform APIs are designed for use by first (internal) and third-party (external) developers.
  • We design high-volume, low-latency, distributed transaction processing systems, making thoughtful tradeoffs between consistency and availability when both are not possible.
  • Our work spans client and server environments and we use Java, Go, Javascript and Ember.JS.

 

 


Qualifications

You have:

  • BS Degree in Computer Science or equivalent. Minimum 2 years of industry experience
  • Natural curiosity and a desire to explore solutions in a small and focused team

About Square

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. So we’re building easy tools to empower and enrich people. Tools that shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it—because we believe in fair and square. We started with a little white card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, our Cash app lets people send money instantly, and we’re building easy tools for customers, too. We’re empowering the electrician to send invoices, setting up the food truck with a delivery option, helping the clothing boutique pay its employees, and giving the 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.
