What does a great Backend Server Engineer (Java) do?
Every day, Clover devices and apps handle the core credit card and point-of-sale processing for hundreds of thousands of merchants. Behind the scenes, we operate a cloud platform providing processing, storage and collaboration for merchants, application developers, service providers and our merchants’ customers.
