Job Description:

Senior Software Engineer (Backend), Employee Financial Services

  • Full-time
  • Position open to remote: Yes
  • Current Square Employee?: Apply via go/jobs with your Square email. Company Description Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We're working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms-and we're looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square. Job Description Much in the same way that Square revolutionized payments, Square Employee Financial Services is radically altering how employees get paid and build financial security. Operating as a unique product team within Square Payroll, our mission is to create meaningful financial wellness options for employees of Square merchants, with a portfolio of creative financial services and other benefits. As an example of this, with our new On-Demand Pay offering, employees of Square merchants can access a portion of their earned wages before their scheduled pay date. Our team wants to transform the lives of people that make their living through our platform. We're a growing part of the Square ecosystem and are using our position to build products and features that are beyond the capabilities of our competitors. You are a product-minded, customer-focused, full-stack engineer who can help take world-changing ideas from prototype to launch. You will:
    • Champion the needs of Square's small-business employee customer base, through customer empathy, iteration, and service ownership
    • Provide technical depth as a backend expert on a full-stack product engineering team
    • Write clean, testable, peer-reviewed code, which will be a model for the team around you
    • Technically lead a diverse portfolio of backend engineering projects
    • Oversee the development and live operation of an increasingly distributed architecture
    • Advocate for change in quality, durability, and technical debt reduction, working directly with Product Managers, Engineering Managers, and other important partners
    • Revitalize services and architectures which have outlasted their original implementations, through refactoring, migration, and scale-ready, distributed architectural design
    • Safeguard the privacy, security, and trust of our customers' sensitive data throughout our implementations, in partnerships with our Risk and--Information Security teams
    • Unleash the velocity of our engineers and engineering systems with processes and implementations that allow us to ship quicker, fail faster, and isolate the blast radius of change pipelines
    • Establish and help us meet backend system service level agreements to protect us through future growth Qualifications You have:
      • A curious, passionate, growth-oriented mindset
      • A desire to teach, improve, and otherwise force multiply the strengths of the engineers that surround you
      • Led impactful engineering projects at non-trivial scale
      • Expertise in at least one major backend programming language and framework. Don't worry if you don't know our stack (yet), because we'll teach you

      • BA/BS degree and 5+ years of equivalent working experience Bonus points if you also have:
        • Expertise in Ruby and Rails
        • Monitor and observability expertise
