If you’ve ever opened your wallet, hoping there was some money inside so you wouldn’t have to go visit an ATM yet again, it’s easy to understand why people need Square.

We started Square in February 2009 to enable anyone with a mobile device to accept card payments, anywhere, anytime. While we found early success providing easy access to card payments, we know that commerce extends beyond payments. In every transaction, we see opportunity for our sellers: to learn more about which products are selling best, to reinvest in their businesses, or to create and engage loyal buyers. We therefore extended our product and service offerings to include financial services and marketing services, all to help sellers start, run, and grow their businesses.

Our insights into our sellers’ businesses have allowed us to develop services that are applicable to businesses of all types and sizes, such as Square Analytics.

Square dashboard

Imagine a killer dashboard where the corner florist can log in and see everything from her invoices, to sales receipts and analyze things like the best days of the week for selling flowers, and the typical customer purchase size. How do you help this woman spend less time managing Excel spreadsheets and more time (literally) smelling the roses? Well, that’s where you come in.

You get to think about and talk to customers and new prospects and what they need, and be their advocate in building a better product and reaching new prospects in creative ways. And you get to do this in beautiful San Francisco, a city that prides itself on the personality of its independent businesses.

Sound like a fun way to spend your time and grow your career? Check out Square’s Product Marketing Lead job and convince them you’re the one. One of the coolest things about Square? 75% of the company reports to one of 4 female executives at the company.

I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets

I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets became available unfortunately. I promised my team (two other women) that we would go but am having trouble finding an "in." Does anyone know of anyone who has extra tickets? If not, do you know any other routes I could go to get some?

I'm interviewing for a new job. Should I reveal that I'm a mom of a 18-month old? Or is it better to hide it?

I am interviewing for a new job. Should I reveal that I have a 20-month old at home? Or is it better to keep it to myself until after the process?

I was laid off in November of last year from a very overbearing tyrant boss. The main issue for me was being asked to go against the company policies as well as what is legally proper (I am a real estate attorney). I do not want to return to the industry I was in but cannot seem to find any company that is willing to give me a chance. I have applied for positions that only require a high school diploma just to get my foot in the door but to date no one in HR seems to appreciate that to give me a phone call to discuss my credentials or why I am applying. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am willing to move too. Right now I am disheartened that my law degree counts for nothing and that I cannot even get a human to reach out to me but only automated emails.

What are women saying about your company?
