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 Developers team is leading the evolution to an open platform that provides access to a rich ecosystem of services for our merchants. We are focused on helping third-party developers build applications and integrations to meet the needs of different merchants to help them better run their business.

  • Communicate analysis and decisions to high-level partners and executives in verbal, visual, and written media

  • Lead the data strategy of embedded product engineering to help make well-informed architecture and design decisions that affect data at Square

  • Develop resources to empower data access and self-service so your expertise can be used where it is most impactful

Qualifications

You have:

  • 5+ years of analytics and data science experience or equivalent

  • Experience building relationships to influence product partners with data

  • Experience leading projects that depend on the contributions of others in multiple disciplines

  • Experience applying both statistical and machine-learning techniques to solve practical product problems such as predicting churn, LTV, cross-selling, and clustering user archetypes
