Product Manager, Payment Platform (Multiple Roles)

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time
  • Alternate Location: New York, United States

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’s Payments Platform is an open, global financial services platform for developers who serve sellers (merchants). It provides the necessary components to manage identity, process payments across multiple channels, hold and transfer funds, and provide accounting, reconciliation, and reporting in a secure and compliant way.

The Payment Platform is looking for product managers to lead the following products:

  • Payments and Financial APIs
  • Payments SDKs
  • Business identification and verification (“know your customer” and “know your business”) workflows
  • Authentication (2-factor authentication for online transactions via 3D Secure) 

In one of these roles you will lead the direction of your product by setting the vision and strategy for the next generation of Square's platform products. You will own new and critical areas that are essential for Square's product and market expansion, in addition to reimagining how existing capabilities can be supercharged to better meet customer needs. You will champion and balance the needs of multiple stakeholders spanning our sellers, our partners, our internal first-party app developers and external third-party developers who innovate on behalf of our sellers. You will partner with engineering to drive execution

You Will:

  • Run your product like a business: manage the entire product life cycle from ideation, to planning and execution and own the success of your product.
  • Define the product vision and roadmap for your products 
  • Focus the team on the most impactful projects by understanding customer use cases, synthesizing those needs into your product roadmap, and defining key metrics
  • Ensure your cross-functional team has a strong understanding and empathy with sellers/merchants using Square and developers building with Square.
  • Collaborate with engineers, product marketers, analysts, designers, and writers to build remarkable product experiences for developers, sellers, and buyers.
  • Manage expectations by communicating progress to stakeholders and partners
  • Ensure the health of your product by balancing new features with maintenance and technical debt.


  • 5+ years of product management experience or equivalent and strong customer empathy
  • Demonstrated success launching and scaling platform products with intuitive developer and user experiences and maintaining them across multiple versions
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills that shine when you’re talking with a customer, working with engineers, or engaging a cross-functional audience
  • Passion for our purpose of economic employment and innovation on behalf of our sellers and developers
  • Experience in financial services is a plus
