The blocks that form our foundational teams — People, Finance, Counsel, Hardware, Information Security, Platform Infrastructure Engineering, and more — provide support and guidance at the corporate level.

Finance & Strategy improves financial and operational decision-making across Block. Our team’s core value is trust – we build it by making what is complex simple, and we do it with analysis that is accurate and easy-to-understand. Partners appreciate our insight and trust us to help solve difficult problems. We believe good ideas can come from anywhere, and we’ll rely on you to work with others, form intelligent opinions, and present your thoughts to decision-makers and company executives.
There are two Finance & Strategy Director roles: Hardware AND Customer Success:
The Hardware organization within Square develop and distributes the physical devices that help sellers start, run, and grow their businesses and participate in the economy. It is an important part of our suite of offerings that aim to provide a full service offering that help sellers (merchants) make informed decisions on their orders, inventory, locations, employees, and customers.
The Customer Success team works with Square sellers by phone, messaging and email to solve problems, demonstrate how to get the most out of Square, and always improve our Square products by giving feedback to Square Product teams. The Customer Success team also builds community platforms and services that allow Square sellers to self-serve answers to common questions before reaching out to a customer advocate.
Both positions can sit in any US Block office or be 100% remote from any US state with the exception of Alaska.
