The Square Security team works to ensure the security of every transaction from swipe to receipt and beyond. We embed ourselves in other teams at Square to build world-class products for both customers and employees. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every single experience with Square is simple, secure, and safe.
Square’s security engineers design, build, and maintain some of the company’s most critical, high-SLA systems. Our software protects our customers’ most sensitive data. Our purpose is to identify Square engineers’ security needs, and to meet those needs in a central and scalable way.
We’re active contributors to open-source! Some of the projects we maintain are:
Design, implement, and build security-oriented software to make it easier for non-security engineers to build secure products
Build automation to provide security insights to other Square engineers (e.g. static analysis, dependency tracking)
