As an early software engineer at Square, I focused on building products to support our e-commerce platform and merchant to buyer communication tools.
Receipts & Feedback
Catalyzed the formation of a dedicated team tasked with the transformation of Square Receipts into a revenue-generating product. Implemented the views, business logic, and architecture for the current SMS, web, and email receipts. Developed Receipts into a platform for future products. Led the launches for breaking out into a separate service, internationalization, automatic receipts, and Seller Feedback program.
In 2014, Square sent 147 million digital receipts; in the first six months of 2015, Square sent 105 million digital receipts. These receipts resulted in over 1.5 million monthly feedback communications sent by buyers to sellers through digital receipts.
As a member of the original implementation team, I built the core interactions of the e-commerce platform and the interactive landing page to our designers’ specs.
Square Market is one of the main revenue drivers for Square's business. I saw the product grow from our original hackathon project, all the way to production. As well as building the product, I was on the ground with our users, learning more about their needs for growing their business & supporting their products.
Square Gift Cards
Built an Ember app for Square's Gift Card unboxing flow, a complex 3D web CSS animation, using Ember as a finite state machine to navigate through the various steps of the animation, for receiving a gift card through Square Wallet.
