Product Designer – Senior Level, Square Capital
- San Francisco, CA
We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy, so we’re building tools to make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there.
With Square Capital, we've extended over $2.1 billion in funding to our sellers, helping them manage their cash flow and making it easy to invest in and grow their business. The Capital Design Team works on a full range of products from providing loans to Square sellers to enabling buyers to pay over time for purchases of large-ticket items.
Our small, highly collaborative team has built a foundational product and is now focused on innovating and experimenting beyond traditional lending products. We’re an integral and growing part of the Square ecosystem and are leveraging our position to build products and features beyond the capabilities of our competitors.

From the beginning, Design has played a central role in Square’s product development process. Whether it’s crafting the user interface our Sellers rely on to run their businesses or designing a landing page for a new product, the Design team is involved at every step. We’re responsible for creating the brand promise customers have in their first interaction with Square Capital and ensuring we deliver on that promise in every aspect of the experience. It’s crucial we communicate confidence and credibility at every step.
The Capital Design Team is highly collaborative and you will work closely with product managers, engineers, marketers, and data scientists to create world-class experiences for our customers. As a member of our team, you'll be responsible for the design and execution of our customers’ experiences with the Square Capital product. This includes feature development, information architecture, visual design, prototyping and overseeing implementation.
