Company Description

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.

Job Description

Square is looking for a passionate Group Creative Director to lead a division of our creative product marketing team.

You will set the creative strategy, direction, voice, and personality for a core group of products. You will direct creative work across Square’s public web, owned channels, integrated campaigns, and performance marketing for your areas of focus, and work with other creative teams on cross-product campaigns. All work will be designed to build awareness, driving the growth of Square products and advancing Square’s business objectives. 

You will directly manage an experienced creative team that will include art direction, interactive and visual design, copy, and program management. You will work regularly with partners in video, photography, production, engineering, and operations. Importantly, you will continue to build upon a culture that motivates this team to achieve creative excellence across a variety of mediums including web, email, film, video, digital, print, direct mail, retail, and events. You will enhance the creative work to meet the ambition of the brand while delivering outstanding results. 

You will work with our marketing partners (product marketing, insights, brand, and channel marketing leads) to develop creative work to support their go-to-market plans. Finally, you will be a member of the cross-company creative leadership team, and help set the tone for the creative culture at Square.
