Senior Software Engineer, Web Payment Experience

Afterpay - San Francisco, 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? See what we've built so far at https://developer.squareup.com/docs/web-payments/overview (and think about all the ways you can help make this experience better).

You Will:

  • Develop the JavaScript APIs and UI responsible for 1st and 3rd party developers' experiences using our platform
  • Maintain the APIs for our tokenization platform
  • Work with server-side engineers
  • Mentor other engineers and contribute to the direction of the team
  • Build experiences for thousands of developers and millions of Square Merchants
  • Design experiences so the team can be brave and move fast without showing a negative impact on customers
  • Be a student of the web and browsers, keeping up to date with frontend engineering trends and best practices

Qualifications

You Have:

  • 5+ years of industry experience
  • A desire to build Square's developer platform, where we succeed when our merchants and developers succeed
  • Experience with and an understanding of how to lead complex projects, breaking down the work into components and milestones that other engineers can easily pick up
  • A deep enjoyment of writing and shipping production software
  • The ability to identify ways to quickly prototype complex ideas
  • A desire to focus on delighting our customers
