Retailers have struggled too long with clunky, outdated and disconnected tools. While mammoth Retail and E-tail forces are looking to disrupt smaller merchants, we are empowering those merchants with simple and elegant solutions to complex problems, like predictive analytics and fluid, omni-channel capabilities to meet the customer wherever they are - to always make the sale. Based in New York City, we are one of the newest launched products at Square. We are a lean team, benefitting from the resources of the larger organization while having the room to focus and innovate. We are relentlessly customer focused, and iterate quickly using a build-measure-learn approach.
