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.
We're looking for a strategic and creative Brand Awareness Marketing Manager to join our Square Japan Marketing team. You'll manage brand awareness, partnership marketing and experiential programs to achieve the goals of Square's brand and product awareness and business metrics. You will build a strategic vision, set the agenda and ensure strength of plans to achieve short-term and long-term results and manage campaigns using owned, earned and paid channels (film, digital, editorial, social, web, events and sponsorships). You'll partner with Creative and other teams to provide go-to-market plans tailored to the Japan market, analyze and optimize campaign performance and introduce new go-to-market tactics.
