Apparently, Square is on a hiring spree of a specific group of engineers. These conclusions come from the heavy tweet traffic observed on a twitter account that notifies the public about job vacancies in the San Francisco /Valley area. The jobs vary from one another but still hold one thing in common; they are engineering related.
Studying a sample of 10 posts, it is evident that Square needs to fill some blanks in its offices with not only one, but also many proficient experts in either software or hardware engineering. This comes from the fact that different tweets refer to a vacancy in the same engineering category. The company’s desire for several interns is also a move that we cannot yet pinpoint as a give back to the society or a plot to attain more turnover while paying less.

Taking a closer look into the trends of the hiring, it does not take a genius to learn that the company is interested in fresh blood straight from the engineering schools. Though this is something that many companies avoid in search for experience, Square is playing a clever gamble that will pay off in the long run.
Taking in interns fresh from the college provides pliable brains that suite the dream and vision of the company. In a dynamic field like engineering, only the expertly picked team can propel a firm to the top of the ladder. It is smart to go for individuals who still have the capability to learn and implement new skills without straining.
Though the move can also backfire on the company, it is the very essence of winning in today’s competitive markets. They say “Smart companies who recruit smart win big.” Square has a strategy that is out of the norm and has smart motives. Time will come when they will sit back and reap from this venture.
Commenting on the hiring spree, Square revealed that they are in search of around 600 employees in the new future and have already recruited over 400. Anyone interested in being part of this ‘tsunami in the making’ should peep at the company’s official job page, either for a job or learn from the trick and implement it in their firms.
