Product Designer, Payments Platform

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time

Company Description

Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

Job Description

As a senior-level Product Designer at Square, you will drive design execution for our Payments Platform. You will design modular, end-to-end onboarding and Payments experiences – in the form of APIs and SDKs – which teams within the company and Sellers outside our organization will use as building blocks to create remarkable products. You will drive our core product’s design and empower small- and medium-sized businesses and the people behind them.

You have:

  • At least 7 years of relevant professional experience
  • A portfolio that shows work you were directly responsible for designing
  • 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 a natural curiosity and desire to collaborate with your leadership peers and bring conversations to next steps
  • You have experience delivering tailored design presentations to convey work for a variety of audiences
  • You can establish the vision for the product and achieve it through design explorations, documentation, and presentations to bring the team along
  • You know when to bypass minor UX testing and lean on your expertise, but also when to propose projects to fill in the gaps
  • You can take on complicated projects and seek the information you need to move forward
