Cash App is the fastest growing financial brand in the world. Built to take the pain out of peer-to-peer payments, Cash App has gone from a simple product with a single purpose to a dynamic money app with over 15 million active monthly users.

Loved by customers and by pop culture, we’ve held the #1 spot in finance on the App Store for almost two years, and our social media posts see more engagement in a day than most financial brands see in a year.

With major offices in San Francisco, New York, St. Louis, Portland, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Melbourne, Cash App is bringing a better way to send, spend, and save to anyone who has ever sought an alternative to today’s banking system.

As a Lead iOS Engineer on Cash App, you’ll play a pivotal role anchoring mobile development in Melbourne while also building teams, products, and services that will fundamentally change the way people interact with financial institutions.  You will be responsible working closely with our engineering, design and product teams to deliver on our vision for the future and helping evolve our industry-changing app!
