Since we first opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely – and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take a payment and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together. So we expanded into software and started building integrated, omnichannel solutions – to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, run a busy kitchen, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. And across it all, we’ve embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow all in one place.
Today, we’re a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex commerce operations, sellers just starting out, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers scale, so do our solutions. We all grow together.
There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a business that is big, meaningful, and lasting. And we are helping sellers around the world do the same.
The Checkout team owns the shared mobile checkout experience shipped within our various Point of Sale mobile products. If you’ve ever purchased a product in person at a business that uses Square, you’ve interacted with the mission critical flow that we own! We’re focused on delivering a best-in-class checkout experience to Square Sellers and their customers, while also collaborating internally with robust mobile APIs for building specialized new experiences and features. We work closely with various partner teams from across the company and are the drivers for many high leverage initiatives that push the Square product ecosystem forward.
