The North American Enterprise team at Block is responsible for driving revenue to Block’s core businesses (Afterpay, Cash App, Square) through commerce, giving our Merchant partners access to the largest and most engaged network of next generation consumers.
We are looking for a high-energy, dynamic strategic thinker to forge and expand Block’s relationships with the largest global brands and unlock new revenue opportunities across our expanding portfolio of payments products. You will be on the front lines of a fast-growing payments business - partnering with business owners and leading executives of Fortune 500 companies. You will be responsible for complex and first-of-kind deal negotiation and execution with leaders in commerce.
A successful candidate thrives in a challenging, fast-paced environment, has a passion for developing and expanding client relationships, and exhibits a strong sense of ownership to win new business for Block. You will have a demonstrated ability to navigate ambiguity, think strategically and operationally about business, marketing and technical challenges; and lead cross-functional teams to launch product and commercial initiatives.
Be the Voice of Block: Represent Block to top-tier Enterprise & Mid-Market Merchants as a thought-leader in the payments landscape and demonstrate Block’s value as a growth driver for our commerce partners

Craft Deal Strategy: Develop and pitch powerful sales narratives that educate prospective partners of Block’s value proposition. Effectively communicate with senior decision makers at the largest brands in the world.
Be a Team Player: Partner closely with cross-functional teams to drive deals forward, including Marketing, Finance, Product, Risk, Legal, Operations, Customer Service; and with external partners’ cross-functional executives

A hunger to problem solve with analytical rigor. You’re a killer sales person and strategic thinker who comes armed to internal and external conversations with the right data and analysis to make a convincing argument.
An operational mindset, with an ability to lead teams through complex deal constructs, relationships and organizations by setting a clear vision and implementing robust processes
