Senior Software Engineer, Square Banking Accounting & Revenue

Square - San Francisco, CA

Company Description

Since we first opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely – and so has Square. After enabling anyone to make a payment and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together. So we expanded into software and started building integrated, omnichannel solutions – to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, run a busy kitchen, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. And 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 all in one place.

Today, we’re a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex commerce operations, sellers just starting out, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers scale, so do our solutions. We all grow together.

There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a business that is big, meaningful, and lasting. And we are helping sellers around the world do the same.

Job Description

Square’s rapidly growing financing platform, Square Banking Credit, has revolutionized the way businesses obtain the funding needed to achieve their goals.

Unlike traditional business financing products, Square Banking Credit offers are extended to pre-qualified sellers based on their business performance, funds are deposited as soon as the next business day, and are customizable based on the Seller’s needs. Since the product launched in 2014, Square Banking Credit has extended more than $9 billion to hundreds of thousands of sellers worldwide.

As an Engineer for the Accounting & Revenue team in Square Banking, you will help build out a platform to handle the accounting, revenue recognition, and related functions for our credit products. Our platform is responsible for everything from accurately recording and reporting financial operations and transactions to data-crunching jobs that process millions of dollars in payment events every day. You will operate on the critical path of all our products on Credit, Banking, and beyond, and have a direct impact on the success of our credit products.

You will:

  • Help deliver major efforts to expand access to Credit for our sellers.

  • Help us build the future of our accounting and revenue platform.

  • Lead and empower an outstanding team of engineers by promoting pragmatic engineering decision-making and leveraging your technical expertise to constantly raise the quality of design decisions and implementation.

  • Lead and participate in critical technical, design, and product discussions with leaders across our various product, data science, operations, engineering, accounting, treasury, and reconciliation teams.

  • Oversee the success of your team's projects and deliver quantifiable results.

  • Receive mentorship to help advance your career.

  • Learn and understand multiple complex financial instruments to model commonalities between them,

  • Participate in ongoing training to maintain current knowledge of BSA/AML and perform BSA/AML duties as required.


You have:

  • 5+ years of hands-on software engineering experience

  • Interest in working on back-end systems, from APIs and business logic to optimizing databases and streams.

  • Interest in modeling complex domains and building resilient systems to support high-throughput real-world applications.

  • Excellent software development skills and architectural design skills.

  • Experience collaborating with product managers, data analysts, and other cross-functional leaders.

  • Knowledge of programming languages (e.g. Ruby, Java, Go, Python)

  • Interest or relevant experience in lending, finance, accounting, or similar domains.
