Product Manager - Risk
- San Francisco, CA
We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. So we’re building tools that make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, and our Cash app lets people pay each other back instantly. 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. Let’s shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. And make it easier for customers to shop and pay at their favorite businesses. 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.
One of our most important assets is trust --- as a seller, the ability to focus on running a business with the knowledge that Square has your back if things go wrong. Trust goes both ways; we also need to trust our sellers to run legitimate businesses that serve their customers. We protect our sellers against organized fraud rings, scammers, and other bad actors, while innovating new technology that enables more good customers and reliably scales to accommodate new use-cases within and beyond risk.
