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

As a Content Designer on Square for Retail, you will partner closely with Product Designers, Product Managers, Researchers, as well as Engineering and Legal to increase usability and ease of use across our product. You’ll also help to build the processes we will rely on to grow the Content Design discipline within our team and across the company. You will report to the Design Lead for Retail.

You Will:

  • Be hands-on — writing and editing copy across four product teams. This includes the smallest micro copy to the most visible headlines and everything in between.
  • Help the Product Design team become more efficient by developing processes and workflows for collaborating with Content Design.
  • Drive best practices for Content Design in collaboration with our design systems team as well as other Content Designers across the company.
  • Build strong relationships with cross-functional team members and leads across the organization, and effectively speak to processes and value of the writing discipline.
  • Partner with Brand/Marketing writers to define how our brand voice is expressed thoughtfully within our products.
  • Apply metrics, data, design research, usability testing, customer support insights, and more to inform content and language decisions.
  • Manage and prioritize your workload of multiple projects with different collaborators.

Qualifications

You Have:

  • At least (5) years of relevant professional experience
  • A portfolio with examples of previous Content Design work specifically showing how you improved user experience through language, from interface copy to style guides and beyond.
  • Experience being embedded in a product design team with whom you collaborate closely. 
  • Experience navigating ambiguity and lack of structure.
  • Strong attention to detail with regard to grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Comfortable providing feedback on UI/UX designs, asking thoughtful questions about product strategy, and applying learnings from quantitative and qualitative research.

Even better:

  • Experience creating copy guidelines, working with design systems 
  • Familiarity with accessibility standards
