Product Manager - Appointments
- San Francisco, CA
We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.
Square is built by an incredible team that is on a mission to make commerce easy for all types of businesses. As one of our three vertical solutions, Square Appointments helps businesses in the services industry succeed. We build innovative solutions that provide businesses with everything they need to run their business: scheduling and online booking, a point of sale that tracks customer details, and a secure, fast payments system. As a Product Manager on the team, you will have an opportunity to drive impact for the millions of small businesses utilizing our platform to start, run and grow their business. This is a senior position with an opportunity for people management and to manage a fast-growing, industry-leading product end to end.
You will be responsible for defining the product’s strategy, coordinating and executing projects, and optimizing our customers’ journeys through all stages of the funnel (from onboarding to becoming successful, active sellers on the platform). Our approach is both customer-focused and data-driven. So you will need to dig in to deeply understand our customers and their needs, define and analyze experiments, and guide our world-class team to move fast and ship remarkable solutions.
In this role, you will also collaborate closely with designers, engineers, analysts, marketers, and other cross-functional team members within the organization to ensure that our product reaches customers and provides a remarkable, delightful experience. Thus, on any given day, your job may include identifying growth levers for the product, building new experiences, iterating on experiments, and planning or prioritizing initiatives. You should also be willing to take risks and push boundaries, trying anything and everything that helps drive Square Appointments’ long-term success.
