Finance & Strategy Senior Manager, Seller Business FP&A
- 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.
Finance & Strategy is responsible for improving strategic, financial, and operational decision-making across Square. Our team’s core value is trust – we build it by making what is complex simple, and we do it with analysis that is accurate and easy-to-understand.

We believe good ideas can come from anywhere, and we’ll rely on you to collaborate with others, form intelligent opinions, and present your thoughts to decision-makers and company executives.
