Software Engineer (Cloud Infra), Customer Data Platform

Published date Posted on Indeed on May 05, 2022 (19 d ago)

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


The Automation organization enables and measures the unified customer journey, intelligently empowering customers through Square's ecosystem of products. Customer Data Platform (CDP) Engineering is an essential team within the Automation organization that has two foci: First, building a state-of-the-art in-house CDP for collecting, unifying, and connecting customer data with applications. Second, building products and capabilities (e.g., for personalization, segmentation, data privacy management) that allow partners to easily integrate with CDP and help them use customer data to build remarkable solutions. CDP Engineering is an established team that has already made a great impact on Square's data infrastructure and is aspiring to transform Square into a truly data company.

We are looking for a software engineer (just like you!) to contribute to our technical vision and develop platform infrastructure. You will use your engineering experience with cloud platforms to improve Square's data capabilities to grow our go-to-market strategy.

  • Help establish and improve measurable metrics for platform’s success and service objectives.

  • Contribute to the team’s team’s processes, long-term goals and help prioritize roadmap to make the platform more reliable, scalable and secure.

  • Build APIs and highly available services that deliver personalized, real-time merchant data and data governance controls to internal teams at Square.

  • Collaborate with business, data, product and other engineering teams across Square and grow the platform's footprint and impact.

  • Demonstrated excellence in building and owning highly scalable backend services

  • Experience with cloud platform (we use GCP)

  • Experience with streaming technologies (Kafka, Pubsub, Kinesis) and log-based architectures and experience writing batch and stream processing jobs (i.e. Apache Beam, Google Cloud DataFlow, Apache Spark, Apache Storm)

  • Experience designing and building APIs

  • A desire to be directly responsible for the lifecycle of engineering solutions. This includes leading the design and implementation of projects and organizing the team to achieve a remarkable solution.

  • A love of data, data munging and care about building the right abstractions

  • A strong desire to see your work have direct impact on the business

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Google Cloud Platform
