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 Seller Risk team works to protect our customers and Square from financial risk coming from Fraud, Payment Disputes, and Credit. We keep our customers safe while $25B+ flows through Square annually, and we allow the entire company to take risks and grow. We take pride in our work and our mission to protect Square, protect our customers, and make a complicated and sometimes painful process understandable to all.

We're looking for experienced Product Managers for multiple opportunities within our Risk Product team, to expand our capabilities to protect customers and Square as we continue to grow with new products and expand to new locales.

You Will:

  • Achieve remarkable products and features that ensure optimal experiences for Sellers while protecting Square against financial loss.
  • Address challenging prioritization questions through data-driven approaches that put your customer first.
  • Establish your product road-map and lead your cross functional team to completion within target range.
  • Represent your team, your team's goals, and your team's strategy to meet those goals with multiple partners, Risk leadership, and senior company leaders.


You Have:

  • 5+ years of product management experience
  • Experience building consensus and working with diverse partners across a product ecosystem.
  • Vision: You've formed, gained and supported strategies shaping the direction of your product.
  • Results: You're excellent tactically, with experience shipping elegant products at scale.
