We're excited to announce our new St. Louis office. Thanks for the warm welcome!
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.
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.
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 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:
- San Francisco (Mid-Market): Tour Square’s Tricked-Out Office

I have been working at Square full-time (More than 3 years)
Square has been a great place to work for the past few years. It's provided me the opportunity to grow in my career and learn new skills, while simultaneously witnessing a rapidly growing company adjust on the fly to new challenges. Working at a company that grows and changes so rapidly has been one of the best ways to learn quickly. The amount of experiences that I feel like I've faced in the few years I've been here seems much higher than my peers at slower moving companies. I think this can only benefit me. There are a lot of great people here to work with and learn from. I have real friends here, not just co-workers. Leadership has become much stronger on account of some key hires.
Growing pains come with the territory when you move quickly in an industry that is constantly changing. We are going up against behemoths that have deeper pockets and more resources than us. In my opinion, that makes it a bit more fun, but it does make for some thrash as the priorities evolve and shift with the changes in the environment.
Advice to Management
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Square (Boston, MA) in October 2015.
Got recruiter to email me, skipped the coding challenge straight to the phone interview. It was about an hour, a little longer than expected. Got a Skype call from the engineer, he wanted to start right away, because he couldn't pull out my resume from the database. Interview question wasn't hard, but the interviewer clearly had problem understanding me, because he would ask the same question again and again. Like what is the space complexity of your solution and why, he asked that three times and three times I had to repeat what I just said, until he said it himself, which was a little bit weird and made me think that he completely missed what I was saying.
