Square’s Hardware Team builds the tangible connection to Square. We started with a simple and elegant Reader that turns any phone or tablet into a mobile point of sale - and we continue to lead this category with advances in chip card and NFC technology. Next, we introduced the Square Stand, the best way to turn your iPad into a counter-top point of sale. Most recently, we expanded our Hardware portfolio with our first Android-based solution: Square Register, the first fully integrated point of sale that enables people to start selling right out of the box. As we introduce more products, we will meet the needs of more and more sellers with stand-out hardware products, globally. You will develop the platform that powers Square’s hardware products.
