University Recruiting Programs, Intern

  • San Francisco, CA, USA
  • Intern

Company Description

We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. So we’re building tools that make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, and our Cash app lets people pay each other back instantly. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location.

Our hardware portfolio has grown significantly since our first little white reader to include Square Contactless and Chip Reader, Square Stand, and two all-in-one products: Square Register and Square Terminal. On our hardware team we aim to build emotion evoking, highly usable products that help our customers start, run and grow their business. Join our high energy team of product design, technical engineering, operations and marketing individuals from leading consumer hardware companies.

Let’s shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.
