Product Marketing Manager, Square Retail

  • Toronto, Canada
  • Employees can work remotely
  • Full-time

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

We are hiring a Product Marketing Manager (PMM) to lead the growth and adoption of Square for Retail, a purpose-built Point of Sale solution for retail business owners, in Canada. You will be the product owner and expert in Canada, responsible for defining and optimizing the experience for Square sellers, and leading the go-to-market strategy, including audience segmentation, positioning and optimization of all growth channels.

In this new role, you will impact our business and partner with product management, design, research, analytics, product marketing, and local marketing teams. This includes understanding each country's small business landscape, tracking market conditions affecting product acquisition and usage, understanding customer segments and the competitive environment, gathering product and customer insights, and feeding those insights and requirements back into the product roadmap. It is the PMM's job to ensure we build the right product to meet the needs of our customers, partner with our sales and marketing teams to deliver the right messaging through the right channels, and collect and leverage customer feedback, insights and data analysis to improve our offering in-market.

  • Be the liaison between the product team and Canadian Sales/Marketing/Customer Success teams to gather feedback and collaborate on local marketing opportunities and partnerships
  • Identify target customers, their needs, and how products will meet those needs through surveys, interviews, and product usage
  • Look for opportunities to develop marketing campaigns and projects unique to Canada
  • Partner with US Product Marketing Managers to inform pricing and packaging strategies
  • Be the voice of the Canadian customer and partner with Product Management, Design and Engineering to determine the international product strategy and influence the product roadmap
  • Track marketing program performance and optimize through continuous testing
  • Assess competitive offerings and promote ongoing differentiation


You Have:

  • A BA degree or equivalent practical experience

  • Experience working in product marketing, growth or lifecycle marketing, or similar go-to-market positions
