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 businessand helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.

The Restaurants team at Square is reimagining the hospitality industry to free today's restaurants from crippling, archaic software and inefficient workflows. We're diners, fans, and admirers of the people working in the food and drink business and we want to do our part to help them succeed.

We are taking a fresh look at this industry and building a modern product ecosystem that capitalizes on the themes of efficiency, automation, and reliability which are becoming the cornerstones of the new breed of hospitality tools. In the dining room, Square sees the Point of Sale becoming increasingly mobile and moving to the diner, while restaurants realize new revenue streams that both complement and compete with their front of house businesses. We're addressing the needs of restaurants in this dynamic landscape with intuitive yet sophisticated iOS, Android, and Web-based software that integrates seamlessly with our hardware, all backed by reliable services.

As a software engineer on the Restaurants team, you will be responsible for helping to build and maintain products that servers, chefs, and managers use to run their restaurant during service and manage day-to-day operations.

The flagship Square for Restaurants product is our powerful, fast POS for iPad. We have an extensive roadmap to make our Restaurant POS even better, and customer needs point to additional investments on iOS beyond the POS. We have a lot to do on the platform, and we're in need of inspired engineers to help.

  • You'll work closely and collaboratively with experienced designers, product managers, and engineers; both on our team and with our friends on other teams.

  • You'll grow as an engineer, and as you do you'll lift others around you.

What you bring to the team and to Square

  • Innate curiosity and a desire to build beautiful, sophisticated, intuitive products for the food and drink service industry

  • Motivation to design and build reliable, elegant apps and products

  • Real empathy for your audience working in restaurants, and for your colleagues at Square

  • Eagerness to share your own ideas, and openness to those of others

  • A collaborative approach to designing and building apps with your teammates and with other teams and offices

  • Strong programming and software development skills

  • Experience developing iOS applications

  • And much, much more. Square is a great place to learn all kinds of technology!
