Software Engineer Intern (Kitchener)

  • Kitchener, ON, Canada
  • Intern
  • Current Square Employee?: Apply via go/jobs

Company Description

We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. So we’re building tools that make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, and our Cash app lets people pay each other back instantly. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. Let’s shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. 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.

Job Description

We’re looking for interns to join our growing, supportive and talented Kitchener-Waterloo development hub. You will help build Cash App, the fastest growing financial app in the world. 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 money app with over 15 million active monthly users.

Loved by customers and by pop culture, we’ve held the #1 spot in finance on the App Store for almost two years, and our social media posts see more engagement in a day than most financial brands see in a year.

With major offices in San Francisco, New York, St. Louis, Portland, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Melbourne, Cash App is bringing a better way to send, spend, and save to anyone who has ever sought an alternative to today’s banking system.

As a member of the Cash engineering team, you’ll collaborate with us to:

  • Design data models to support application features
  • Build APIs used by apps and microservices
  • Scale systems to our growing customer base
  • Operate and manage Cash services
  • Unit test everything
  • Share ownership of the product
  • Contribute to the broader tech and open source communities

Qualifications

This job listing is only for the Cash Team in Kitchener, ON.

  • Pursuing a degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Math or related technical field, graduating between December 2019 and June 2022.
  • This internship will be for the Fall 2019 Co-op Season.
  • Programming experience in one or more object-oriented languages, including C, C++, Objective-C, Java, Kotlin, Ruby, Scala, Go, and/or Python.
