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.
The Square Content Marketing team aims to be the go-to source for independent business owners who want to start, run, and grow their businesses. Our goal is to establish Square as a thought leader, to build the relationship between businesses and our brand, and to acquire new Square sellers through self-service and lead generation strategies.
As our first growth engineering hire, you will build our content experiences in a way that creates traffic, increases engagement, and allows for the content to be better used as an acquisition hook.

You’ll work with the Lead Generation team to better integrate 3rd party programs, such as Marketo, into our infrastructure, and coordinate with the Editorial Strategy team to create outstanding content experiences.
