Product Manager, Omnichannel Catalog
Since we opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely, and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take payments 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, offer buy now, pay later functionality through Afterpay, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. 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 in one place. Afterpay furthers our goal to provide omnichannel tools that unlock meaningful value and growth, enabling sellers to capture the next generation shopper, increase order sizes, and compete at a larger scale.
Today, we are a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex operations, sellers just starting, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers grow, so do our solutions. There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a significant, meaningful, and lasting business, and we are helping sellers worldwide do the same.
The Square Omnichannel team is on a mission to help sellers successfully expand their business into omnichannel sales. We are building the tools to help our sellers sell across stores, marketplaces, ecommerce sites, and anywhere else they need to grow their business. As part of omnichannel selling, we are also building the tools needed to have a common product catalog across all of their sales channels, have shared inventory across all of their sales channels, and fulfill these new omnichannel orders in any way their buyers want from guaranteed two day shipping to curbside pickup to on-demand delivery.
As a Product Manager on the Omnichannel team, you will impact millions of small businesses that are expanding their sales online and help them transition to successful omnichannel businesses.
