Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.
We are looking for a Product Designer to join the Square Ecommerce team and work on Square Online Store. You will think deeply and strategically, execute high-quality design work, and have the opportunity to create impact for millions of small businesses around the world.
This will include working on challenges a business owner might face while getting started, setting up, launching, and managing all aspects of selling online. Ecommerce is an essential part of Square’s ecosystem, and you will drive the product’s design and approach on features and services that empower small- and medium-sized businesses and the people behind them.
