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 Principal Product Designer on the UI Systems team at Square, you will create components, libraries, and patterns and provide support for the central design system, Market. The Market Design System is used throughout all of our merchant- and customer-facing products and surface areas. The UI Systems team focuses on the functional layer of our design systems and how it extends our overall brand. You’ll collaborate closely with peer Product Designers, Brand Designers, Engineers and Technical Program Manager to work on initiatives to improve the experience for merchants using Square products, and improve how product teams design and build day-to-day. Your designs will help unlock the potential of all product teams at Square through our design system. You will report to the Design Lead.

This position is remote from the US or Canada.

  • You have a technical understanding of how to design across various breakpoints, devices, and locales, and can bridge the gap between design and code
