Senior Product Designer, Square Ecommerce

  • San Francisco, CA, USA
  • Full-time
  • Current Square Employee?: Apply via go/jobs

Company Description

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.

Job Description

We’re looking for someone who is motivated by complex problems. You’ll be directly responsible for decisions that influence the product and road map. On this team, your work will span from core features to experimental projects. We believe in generalists at Square, and our Product Designers take projects from napkin sketches to final visual specifications. This will be a cross-functional role where you will work with other designers, product editors, analysts and engineers. 

For consideration, please submit a link to your portfolio.

Qualifications

You have:

  • At least (5-7) years of relevant professional experience

  • A portfolio that shows work you were directly responsible for the success of with little guidance from leadership

  • Experience as a primary contributor to multiple high impact projects

Even better:

  • You proactively formulate ideas and present them to your cross-functional team to determine strategy and roadmaps

  • You have the ability to effectively question and collaborate with your leadership peers and drive conversations to next steps

  • You have executive presence and are able to effectively present work in any scenario in a clear and in a manner appropriate to the audience

  • You are seen as a mentor for other designers and proactively provide feedback and find ways to improve their work

  • You have developed a strong “gut” for design and are able to lean on your years of experience to rapidly execute design tasks to keep the team moving forward

  • Ability to work on multiple projects at the same time

  • You are able to drive the vision for the product and achieve it through design explorations, documentation, and presentations to bring the team along

  • A deep understanding of visual design, typography, and grid systems

  • You know when to bypass minor UX testing and lean on your expertise, but also when to propose initiatives to fill in the gaps

  • You are able to determine your point of view of what success means for a given initiative

  • You can take on complicated projects and seek the information you need to move forward
