Square – Why Work For Us?


Square's Story

Square began with a simple idea: everyone should be able to accept credit cards. We've been rethinking buying and selling ever since. From a revolutionary card reader to a full point of sale with tools for every part of running a business, we’re helping local sellers take care of their business and connect with customers everywhere.

Health and Wellness

We offer a variety of health insurance options so you can choose a plan that best meets your lifestyle. You'll have access to a national network of doctors that provides comprehensive coverage when you need it most. While you’re onsite in San Francisco, take advantage of our wellness program to stay balanced and healthy. And come to work hungry—our nutrition programs add a little something special to daily life at Square.

Taking Time Off

At Square, we have an unlimited vacation policy that allows you to get the rest and relaxation you need to refresh. If you’re welcoming a little one, our paid maternal and paternal leave offers four months of leave at full pay.

Money Wise

We offer a competitive equity package to full-time employees to share ownership and achievement in the company. And we provide a healthy dose of financial education on equity and retirement planning so you can manage your money on your terms.

Learning and Development

At Square, you can customize your career trajectory through our development programs. Our orientation program, Square One, will set you up for success in your new job. Our company-wide quarterly Hack Week is an unstructured week to build something you believe should exist in the world. Additionally, each Square has the option to participate in a variety of peer-to-peer learning opportunities, such as watercolor, iOS, and music classes.

Employee Experience

Life at Square wouldn’t be the same without movie nights, Square Games, our annual Holiday Party, and Bring Your Kids to Work Day. These are a few ways that we like to celebrate and bond over common interests.


Our team is quickly growing globally. All of our spaces are designed to encourage collaboration and transparency — from an open floor plan and stand-up tables, to glass conference rooms and common areas, like our coffee bar in San Franicsco. Square offices are located in:

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Square.

    Interview Details

    I applied on Piazza by sending a message. They then gave me a coding challenge where I had to implement the count-out-loud sequence, which was fairly straight forward. Next I had an interview with an engineer. I had to implement an inorder tree iterator in java. I had a hiccup with it along the way which screwed me over.
