Software Developer (Front-end | Full-stack), Ecosystem Onboarding


Company Description

We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.

Job Description

The Ecosystem Onboarding team’s mission is to help merchants get started with Square as efficiently and effectively as possible. The goal is to get merchants started on the right foot towards the right milestones on any platform (mobile apps, desktop web, mobile web, etc.), while providing space to explore and find new products to help them start, run, and grow their business. We open the door to the ecosystem, but our job doesn’t stop after signing up. The faster merchants experience Square’s overall ecosystem value, the better we can guide them to success.
