Designer, Retail and Appointments
- New York, NY, us
- Employees can work remotely
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.
Square is looking for passionate Designers to join our Retail and Appointments product marketing teams.
These are hands-on creative roles with tremendous opportunity to influence two of our main vertical products, Square for Retail and Square Appointments. You will be a part of a creative team that touches a variety of digital channels including webpages, photoshoots, digital ads, social media, performance marketing, product tutorials, online and offline collateral and much more. Our teams exist to tell the best possible stories of our products and ecosystem, so that our sellers can empower their businesses to excel and grow.
You are conceptual, can share and sell ideas, have a refined design aesthetic and find varying styles an opportunity to extend and grow your skills. You sweat the smallest details, understand what it takes to develop great creative work, excel in collaboration, and have experience translating strategies into great brand experiences. These positions will report to the Creative Director.
