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 Payment Products team manages Square's flagship payments product, making it possible for any seller to take card payments quickly and easily. Our team loves working on Payments because our product is the catalyst for Square's mission of economic empowerment. It is Square's first touchpoint with most of our sellers, and we've already helped millions of sellers take their first payment with Square. But we must continue to listen and respond to the next generation of businesses that are forming and give them the tools to succeed in a quickly evolving payments landscape. Your work will span from core features to experimental projects. This is a highly collaborative role and you will partner with other designers, project managers, data analysts, and engineers. We believe design has a hand in each stage of product development, so Product Designers at Square take projects from napkin sketches to final specifications.

We are looking for a senior Payments designer to shape our best-in-class payments experience, and discover and invent wholly new ways to take payments and reach newly forming businesses.

You will:

  • Own the experience of taking your first payment with Square, and shape it to meet the needs of new sellers globally.
  • Work very collaboratively with strategic partners across Square to ensure that the customer journey is always honored and prioritized.
  • Hold the highest standards for design of a foundational experience for Sellers.

  • You can guide the vision for the product and achieve it through design explorations, documentation, and presentations to bring the team along
