Company Description
Since we opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely, and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take payments and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn't work together.
So we expanded into software and started building integrated, omnichannel solutions - to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, offer buy now, pay later functionality through Afterpay, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. Across it all, we've embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow in one place. Afterpay furthers our goal to provide omnichannel tools that unlock meaningful value and growth, enabling sellers to capture the next generation shopper, increase order sizes, and compete at a larger scale.
Today, we are a partner to sellers of all sizes - large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex operations, sellers just starting, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers grow, so do our solutions. There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We're building a significant, meaningful, and lasting business, and we are helping sellers worldwide do the same.
Job Description
We are looking for a Global Head of Design for Square's Banking and Risk teams. The Banking team was created in 2021, bringing together many financial products at Square into a cohesive suite of banking products, designed specifically for small businesses. With Square Banking, businesses can sell, save, spend, and borrow as fast as they need to. Their payments, bank accounts, and cash flow, are synced together. When they take payments and bank through Square, everything is connected. Our Risk team keeps our small businesses safe from fraud, and our unique ability to ascertain risk is a differentiator that allows us to make our products broadly accessible with ease. We are adding quickly to our collection of cash flow and financial tools as we expand internationally and you will lead a team as you build out the experiences and launch whole new products.
You Will:
Report directly to Square's Chief Design Officer and partner with your peers in Product, Marketing, and Engineering on the Banking executive team.

  • Lead a team of 20+ Product and Content Designers

Additionally, you will be part of the Square Design leadership team at Square and be a core driver of decisions improving the entirety of Design disciplines at Square. You will partner with other Heads of Design peers throughout Square to establish best practices and operations for the discipline.
