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.
Come join one of our many growing Android Teams! Each has it's own unique opportunity to help grow our business and make a positive impact on our merchants and sellers!
Teams that are hiring:
Developer Platform - https://squareup.com/us/en/developers
eCommerce - https://squareup.com/us/en/online-store
Point of Sale - https://squareup.com/us/en/point-of-sale
Application Platform Mobile - The work on this team will be more internal platform focused and the challenges are going to be different from the standard feature/product work. For example, our Point of Sale app contains more than a million lines of code and so mobile development at this scale is highly complex and a largely unsolved problem in the industry.
Connected Device Experience - Merchants require a collection of devices to run a remarkable business. The Connected Devices Experience Team provides an easy-to-use, feature rich, and reliable platform that creates memorable experiences.

At Square, our purpose is to empower – within and outside of our walls. In order to build the best tools for the businesses and customers we support all over the world, we have to start at home with a workforce as diverse and empowered as our sellers. To this end, we take great care to evaluate all employees and job applicants equally, based on merit, competence, and qualifications. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply and always consider qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records, in accordance with the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance. Applicants in need of special assistance or accommodation during the interview process or in accessing our website may contact us by sending an email to assistance(at)squareup.com. We will treat your request as confidentially as possible. In your email, please include your name and preferred method of contact, and we will respond as soon as possible.
