Manager of Analytics, Square

Company Description

Block builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Block started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Block made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Block 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 Block.
