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.
We are looking for an experienced UX Researcher to join Square's growing Appointments and Conversations team. We know we can only build remarkable products if we have empathy for our customers' lives first and that's where you'll come in. You'll help connect Square with the sellers we serve, learning from their unique stories and challenges as small business owners to ensure our products are relevant, useful and delightful.
The Appointments team within Square focuses on designing simple, yet powerful solutions for service-based businesses (e.g. salons, gyms) that rely on scheduling and selling their time. The Conversations team supports messaging as part of omni-channel commerce, promoting streamlined communication between buyers and sellers. You'll report to the UX Research Lead for these teams and be a part of a community of researchers where you can grow in your craft.
We're aiming to build a research team that mirrors the inclusivity of our Square seller community. We encourage candidates from all different backgrounds and all over the United States and Canada - from big cities to small towns - to apply. We also welcome you to share any personal life experiences that power your empathy for our sellers and desire for this role, particularly if you have firsthand experience in the fitness or beauty industry.
Be embedded into a collaborative team of Product Managers, Designers, Data Analysts and Marketers as the "voice of our sellers", focused on creating remarkable seller experiences in one of our product areas. You'll guide and inspire your team by delivering research that uncovers meaningful insights. You'll know you're successful when you've influenced strategic decisions that alleviate our seller's biggest pain points.
