Product Manager, Payment APIs

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Employees can work remotely
  • Full-time
  • Alternate Location: Austin, United States

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. 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.

Job Description

The Payments Platform is an open, global financial services platform for developers who serve sellers.

  • 5+ years of product management experience or equivalent
  • Deep understanding and empathy for our sellers and the developers who serve them
  • Passion for our purpose of economic employment and innovation on behalf of  our sellers and developers 
  • Demonstrated success launching and scaling platform products with public APIs, SDKs, or toolkits and maintaining them across multiple versions
  • Desire to lead, the ability to drive product strategy and work well with senior engineers and designers
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills that shine when you’re talking with a customer or engaging a cross-functional audience
  • Natural curiosity, obsession with the details, desire to build the right thing
