Product Communications Intern (Summer 2023)

Mar 16, 2023

Job Description

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.

Square's Communications team shares with the world how Square empowers businesses of all types and sizes with powerful and elegant solutions to help them start, run, and grow.

As a Communications Intern, you will help our team bring to life the numerous ways that Square’s innovative technology is helping sellers find success during challenging times. As a purpose-driven company, you will keep a finger on the pulse of broader industry trends and conversations to help identify opportunities for Square’s narrative to shine.

We’re looking for someone who can hustle under pressure and change course quickly. If you’re an intellectually curious self-starter, passionate and skilled in GIF usage, and a fan of the Oxford comma, we’re looking for you.
