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.
The Channels team is a passionate and occasionally silly team with a bold mission: enable Square sellers to sell everywhere through omnichannel solutions.
We are building many integrations to 3rd party systems used by sellers, as well as a core platform to power those integrations. The platform is designed to accelerate our future initiatives of supporting commerce everywhere by unlocking omni-channel selling, and it's being built with state-of-the-art technologies and event-driven architectural principles.
As a leader on the Channels team you will be responsible for managing a team that is responsible for building the platform that powers our channel integrations, as well as the products that our seller’s use to manage and automate those integrations. You will have direct responsibility for shaping the product roadmap and delivering critical features that will help thousands of sellers share their millions of products with the world.
