About Square New York Engineering

Engineers at Square are changing the world by enabling
anyone to open a business and accept credit cards. With the goal
of creating simplicity on both sides of the counter, our job is anything but simple.
It demands creativity, discipline, and attention to detail. That's the story we want to share.

Square is simplifying commerce for everyone. We began with a simple idea: everyone should be able to accept credit cards. Today, we’re redesigning the payments experience for buyers and sellers alike—from hardware to pricing structure to payments.
