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

The Orders team oversees the platform that powers all sales and order management at Square. We are also responsible for the order management, fulfillment, and checkout experiences on the mobile and web point of sale solutions.

  • Improve product delivery, execution, and processes
  • Establish and implement adoption of program frameworks, tools, and best practices
  • Lead post program analysis to guide future programs
  • Identify challenges and risks, working with a cross-functional team to address and mitigate them
  • Communicate plans, status, risks and mitigations to the broader team
  • Establish processes that are appropriate and scalable


You have:
  • 8+ years of program management experience in software/web development organizations
  • Direct experience managing cross-functional teams and projects
