We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. So we’re building tools that make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, and our Cash app lets people pay each other back instantly. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. Let’s shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. And make it easier for customers to shop and pay at their favorite businesses. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.

Culture and Values
I was brought on via the AfterPay acquisition as part of the Platform team(s). While it was great to work with integrating our two platforms together there where alot of hostile work relationships born of a total lack of communication about our direction and goals from the higher ups across the organization creating a bit of a dog-eat-dog each-for-themselves work culture with minimal internal lateral movement.

Pros and Cons
great benefits, great pay, nice offices
high stress
