Senior Product Analyst, Point of Sale Platform
- 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.
Product Analysts at Square are embedded within product teams and leverage engineering, analytics, and machine learning to empower data-driven decision making in the full lifecycle of product development. As a member of the team, you will lead experimentation and growth initiatives, develop automation solutions to personalize product experiences, provide insights to our sellers about their business, and drive strategic decisions with data. Squares mission is economic empowerment, and our team supports this by using data to understand and empathize with our customers, thereby enabling us to build a remarkable product experience. For more insight into what we do, check out this blog post.
