Product Designer, Payments Platform

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time

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

As a senior-level Product Designer at Square, you will drive design execution for our Trusted Identity team. This team is responsible for modeling the risk of every merchant through proactive data collection using a variety of techniques. Trusted Identity offers a unique challenge that requires designers to add friction for risky customers, but do so in a way that emphasizes transparency and aligns incentives in a way that is beneficial to both merchants and Square. You will be able to drive our core product’s design and empower small- and medium-sized businesses and the people behind them.

Qualifications

You have:

  • 5+ years of professional design experience
  • A portfolio of work on which you were the primary designer, with moderate guidance from design leadership
  • The ability to articulate high-level team goals and connect your work to larger team or company initiative

Even better:

  • You actively plan, scope, and create work that contributes to a larger, long-term plan
  • You know when to compromise without sacrificing user experience or design principles
  • You are an advocate for the customer
  • You can effectively communicate your ideas and work to your direct team and other teams
  • You always think about how your work fits into the company’s full ecosystem during all phases of the design process
  • You propose and participate in usability and field research
  • You work on challenging, wide-reaching projects for your team with little guidance from your lead
