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

Even more recently, we launched Paycheck Protection Program loans for sellers using many of our platform’s capabilities in a matter of weeks, making 76,000 PPP Loans totaling $820 million. As a Senior Product Manager on Square Capital, you will own identifying and driving technical product initiatives from inception through execution.
