What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

We are the Reporting Platform team, a team whose mission is to make all seller data at Square instantly accessible and relatable, to both internal product teams and to third-party developers and sellers.

To do so, we are building a GraphQL-based search and reporting platform capable of operating at Square scale. We started first in the Payments domain, building out a high-scale system capable of searching and aggregating across Square’s vast payment domain in real-time. We’re now scaling the system with new functionality and building it truly as a platform to achieve the same across all seller domains at Square.

We are looking for a senior engineer who can join the team and increasingly take on a technical and organizational leadership role on the project as we build toward company-wide scale.

You will:

  • Work with Product and stakeholders across Square to identify platform requirements, and work within the engineering team to plan and implement the corresponding features.
  • Provide high-quality hands-on contributions across multiple code bases.
  • Identify technical and architectural end states for the project, and influence/evolve the code case in those directions.
  • Monitor and measure team progress to ensure the team is delivering sustainably.
  • Play a key role in choosing technical investments for the team.
  • Mentor and grow engineers across the team.

You have:

  • 7+ years of software development experience
  • Proficiency in large-scale Ruby projects, or a history and interest in quickly learning new technologies and stacks.
  • Strong product intuition and interest, with platform-building experience
  • Tactical and strategic leadership experience on medium/large-scale software projects
  • Strong written communication skills for internal and external stakeholders
  • Interest and experience in mentoring other engineers


Even better:

  • Experience and familiarity with Kotlin, GraphQL, Elasticsearch, and AWS technologies
  • History of contributions to open-source projects
  • Familiarity with the payment-processing domain


Technologies we use within Reporting Platform:

  • Ruby, Java, Kotlin
  • GraphQL
  • Elasticsearch, DynamoDb
  • Terraform, Amazon Web Services

About Square

We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. So we’re building easy tools to empower and enrich people. Tools that shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it—because we believe in fair and square. We started with a little white card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, our Cash app lets people send money instantly, and we’re building easy tools for customers, too. We’re empowering the electrician to send invoices, setting up the food truck with a delivery option, helping the clothing boutique pay its employees, and giving the coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. 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.
