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

As a Product Designer at Square, you will drive design execution for our Marketing Automation team. Marketing Automation’s goal is to help our internal partners better understand and connect with all our customers. We design tools that save teams time and empower them to personalize every interaction a customer has with Square. 

We’re looking for a designer to work on our Communications Platform, which drives all our Square-to-merchant communication channels, including email, in-app messaging, push notification, and in-product banners. You’ll work with teams across the company to create best practices and a design system that empowers them to move quickly and communicate effectively, all while being a strong expression of our brand values.


You have:

  • 5+ years of professional design experience
  • A portfolio of work on which you were the primary designer, with moderate guidance from design leadership

Even better:

  • You take pride in the quality of your work and create professional, well-thought-out designs using established design systems
  • You always think about how your work fits into our full ecosystem during all phases of the design process
  • You can push design systems forward with polish and visual flare
