Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, & grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult & 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 & software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, & more. We're working to find new & better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms-and we're looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.
The Payments team enables Square's core business to move over $20B per quarter. By developing infrastructure & working with external partners, we're finding ways to move money across local & international networks through means that are creative, cost-effective, available, scalable, secure, & forward-looking.
As a leader within the Payments Platform team, you will manage a mobile team that builds & maintains the services & infrastructure that allow first & third-party developers to access our platform & grow within our ecosystem. You will work with internal & external partners to bring Square's services to an even broader audience - & as they grow, so do we.
