Square-Engineering Manager, Frameworks & Services

Toronto, ON, Canada

About the job:

Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

Responsibilities:

As an Engineering Manager on Frameworks & Services, you would lead a full-stack team responsible for providing experiments, feature flags, device configuration, and other third-party integrations within our mobile applications.

Our team reports to the Developer Empowerment organization which ensures software development at Square is not only fast and efficient, but delightful.

  • Lead a foundational, multi-discipline team of engineers working on complex, full-stack projects with wide impact across the company
