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.

The Corporate Security team at Square is responsible for enabling foundational teams such as Finance, Business Systems, Legal, People, and Communications, to execute on their initiatives with agility without compromising security. To accomplish this, Security Partners are subject matter experts on the risks inherent in the business processes, interactions with third parties, threats to employee workstations, corporate data center resources, and cloud (SaaS / PaaS) solutions employed across Square.

  • Develop security requirements, policies, and solutions to address corporate risk
  • Influence secure designs and roadmaps for effective risk management
  • Perform vendor risk assessment for third-party solutions that address security threats
  • Work with a dynamic, fast-paced, and geographically-distributed team of experts
