Senior Software Engineer (Server), Square Appointments

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 take 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 Appointments helps service professionals manage their calendar on the go. With Square’s online scheduling software, customers can always get access to their availability and confirm their appointments seamlessly online. Our merchants can easily keep their schedules open and attract new business—even when they're done for the day.

Our team is focused on building and scaling our Bookings platform, including the Bookings API. The Bookings platform lets developers and industry partners create online-booking applications for users to book services provided by Square sellers. You will help ship new API features that meet our developers and sellers needs. Additionally, you will help ensure that our software infrastructure can scale appropriately to support the growing Appointments’ customer base.

You will:

  • Work closely with other engineers and product managers to design and build world-class product experiences.
  • Own and drive the architecture of our backend systems.
  • Evaluate and pitch new technologies for Appointments engineering to adopt
  • Hold yourself and your teammates accountable to the standards of engineering and ethics that enables Square to safely move billions of dollars in payments and allow our customers to trust us with their sensitive data.
  • Be responsible for the entirety of your features; including API design, implementation, automated testing, and rollout.
  • Help empower a team of engineers by mentoring individuals, cultivating pragmatic engineering decision-making, and leveraging your technical expertise to constantly raise the quality of design decisions and implementation by holding the team to a high standard.

Qualifications


You Have:

  • 6+ years of relevant industry experience with a strong command of software engineering fundamentals.
  • Strong execution skills, with a pragmatic focus on ROI, to deliver remarkable solutions to our merchants.
  • The ability to adapt to the different stages of product development. This can mean building intentionally scrappy code to iterate quickly, or building a sustainable system that will support our product for years to come.
  • An appreciation for the connection between the software you build and the experience it delivers to customers.
  • Strong communication skills and ability to work cross-functionally with other functions, such as designers, product managers, data scientists, marketing, and business development to deliver a great product.
  • Proficiency in at least one server-side language and an enthusiasm to learn others. Our engineers have all kinds of backgrounds and are encouraged to move freely across our technology stack.
  • The ability to provide technical mentorship and guidance to engineers of varying experience levels.

Languages and technologies we use and teach:

  • Languages: Ruby, Java
  • Frameworks: Rails, RSpec, Sidekiq, gRPC, Guice
  • Infrastructure: MySQL, Redis, Kafka
