Role Description

At Clover, our team is broken down into product-focused squads. Each squad comes with its own unique set of responsibilities and contains engineers from all parts of the stack. These squads range in focus; for instance, the Clover App Market Squad strives to give merchants the ability to tailor Clover devices to their personal needs, while the Payments Squad focuses more on core payment functionality. The Clover App Market currently boasts over 220 applications from 3rd party developers. We have one squad dedicated to supporting 3rd parties development on our platform and another squad supporting App Market functionality and ease of use for merchants. Our Payments Squad builds and maintains our core infrastructure and applications which support over 5400 transactions a minute. The Payments Squad focuses on EMV, NFC, and swipe transactions, while another squad, Point of Sale and Reporting, touches more on data analysis, so merchants can gain valuable insights to their businesses.
