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

We are looking for a Product Designer to join the Square Ecommerce team and work on Square Online. This position will require visual and UX skills for both web and mobile platforms, with an opportunity to drive impact for millions of small businesses around the world. Ecommerce is an essential part of Square's ecosystem, and you will work on challenges a business owner might face while getting started, setting up, launching, and managing all aspects of selling online. 

We believe in generalists at Square, and our Product Designers are expected to deliver high-quality UX and visual design. Daily responsibilities include: creating pixel perfect screens for complex product flows on web and mobile platforms, collaborating with other designers, reviewing built work with engineers and presenting work in design critiques and leadership reviews. This is a cross-functional role where you will work with other designers, product editors, analysts and engineers. 

You will:

  • Create concepts and present them to your team to determine direction
  • Work with other designers, receiving and providing feedback, and find ways to improve your work
  • Build detailed product flows, including error states and edge cases
  • Use data, research and customer insights in your work
  • Determine your point of view of what success means for a given initiative
  • Take on complicated projects and seek the information you need to move forward

Qualifications

You have:

  • At least (2–4) years of professional design experience, including internships
  • A portfolio that shows both visual and UX work you are directly responsible for that made it through to completion
  • Experience speaking to the goals of the work as well as successes and failures
  • Experience working on both web and mobile products

Even better:

  • You can work with your cross-functional team to determine goals and success of individual projects
  • You can present your work to your product team and design peers
  • You know when to compromise without sacrificing user experience or design principles
  • You can produce pixel perfect designs by utilizing defined systems and frameworks
  • You participate in research initiatives and brainstorms to gather input to improve your design work
  • You seek feedback from other designers to help improve your work and grow your skills
