Senior Software Engineer, Web Payment Experience

Afterpay - Los Angeles, CA

Company Description Since we opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely, and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take payments and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together. To solve this problem, we expanded into software and built integrated solutions to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. Across it all, we’ve embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow in one place. Afterpay furthers our goal to provide omnichannel tools that unlock meaningful value and growth, enabling sellers to capture the next generation shopper, increase order sizes, and compete at a larger scale. Today, we are a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex operations, sellers just starting, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers grow, so do our solutions. There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a significant, meaningful, and lasting business, and we are helping sellers worldwide do the same. Job Description The Web Payment Experience team builds JavaScript SDKs and complementary UIs for developers who want to take payments with Square on their websites. Thousands of developers use our code to power the payments capabilities that millions of merchants depend on. We build the tools to make that not just possible but also accessible. Like frontend frameworks like React and Vue make it easier to build complex single-page apps, we're building frameworks to simplify the complexity of taking payments. Want to learn more?
