iOS Engineer - Cards, Cash App
It all started with an idea at Block in 2013. Initially 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 ecosystem, developing unique financial products, including Afterpay/Clearpay, to provide a better way to send, spend, invest, borrow and save to our 47 million monthly active customers. We want to redefine the world’s relationship with money to make it more relatable, instantly available, and universally accessible.
Today, Cash App has thousands of employees working globally across office and remote locations, with a culture geared toward innovation, collaboration and impact. We’ve been a distributed team since day one, and many of our roles can be done remotely from the countries where Cash App operates. No matter the location, we tailor our experience to ensure our employees are creative, productive, and happy.

Our mission is to make Cash App Card the primary card of choice by building delightful and differentiated end-to-end experiences across ordering, managing cards and conducting every day spend. In 2022, we shipped the Gift Cards feature which allows customers to easily send and receive a digital gift card through Cash App. Gift cards with an active balance are automatically applied to transactions at the associated merchant resulting in a frictionless and meaningful experience for customers. In the first quarter of 2023, we launched the ATM Finder feature making it simple and convenient for customers to locate and use a fee-free ATM. In June 2023, we launched the Mood card - a thermochromic card that can be customized with a personalized design which makes for a unique and delightful experience.
For the 2nd half of 2023, we will be rolling out card spending controls and insights to allow customers to track and control their spending. We will also be launching additional Card types that are fun, personalizable and can be proudly shared with your friends and family.
