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

The Restaurants team at Square is re-imagining the hospitality industry to empower today's restaurants with simple, elegant software and efficient workflows. We admire the people working in the highly-competitive food and drink business and we want to help them succeed.

Restaurants today operate in an increasingly dynamic landscape, and we're building a modern product ecosystem to support this. Our products use innovative technology to unlock new workflows, revenue streams, and means of communication. In everything we build, we focus on efficiency, automation, and reliability: themes of paramount importance in a fast-paced environment where great hospitality is essential.

We're looking for back-end software engineers to join our growing team! Our products consist of sophisticated Web, iOS, and Android software that integrates with our hardware, all backed by reliable services.

As a software engineer on the Restaurants team, you'll build and maintain the services that power our web and mobile applications, as well as the web-based dashboard that enables restaurant owners to set up, manage, and learn from their business. We work in small full-stack product teams, so you'll interact with product managers, designers, and other engineers on a daily basis. You'll also work with our partners across the company in shared codebases, and contribute directly to Square's platform services when needed.

Qualifications

What you bring to the team and to Square:

  • Passion to build beautiful, intuitive products for the food and drink hospitality industry
  • Innate curiosity, and a desire to learn and teach
  • Empathy for your customers and colleagues
  • Eagerness to share your own ideas, and openness to those of others
  • Experience working in Java or Rails
  • Familiarity with front end technologies a plus

  • Java, Ruby on Rails, Go
