About the jobCompany 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.
Square has a robust suite of Point of Sale products, including those that are free to get started (Square Point of Sale) and those that are premium solutions that are purpose built for specific industries like restaurants, retail, and services. Powering all these products is a shared point of sale product-platform team that builds common features, components and developer frameworks that are integrated into every point of sale product, which speeds development and allows Square to offer new features and services to its sellers in a scalable and efficient way.
XPOS Platform is a new team at Square responsible for ensuring that Square's engineers can build reliable, performant, and delightful point of sale products at scale. We identify and remove roadblocks that slow down the delivery of new features and products, and lead other platform and product teams to adopt new development frameworks that increase efficiency and quality.
