The Seller Experience team is the glue of our product ecosystem. We are the team that thinks outside of individual products and focuses on the entire experience a seller has in evaluating, signing up for, and using Square. The Seller Experience team is responsible for many of the shared surface areas and platforms that Square's products feed into, such as our public website (, sign-up and onboarding flows, dashboard, setup guides, support channels, and chatbots. We build and pave the sellers' path to getting value from our vast ecosystem of products and services. Our mission is to unify, personalize, and support seller experiences across Square.

We're looking for a Senior Conversation Designer to join the Seller Experience team. Working across multiple touch points and surfaces, you'll create a cohesive, conversational, and interactive chat experience for sellers across Square's ecosystem.

  • Be lead editor for all chatbot content, ensuring that a cohesive, conversational, interactive experience emerges from our many flows
  • Mentor chatbot writers, helping them up-skill in conversation design principles to improve content drafts, structure content platforms, and unify voice and tone
  • Collaborate within product teams and go-to-market teams—assess and prioritize opportunities, constraints, and features—advocating for the end-user while balancing priorities and team goals
  • Work with data scientists and use quantitative and qualitative data and user feedback to guide and influence conversation design
  • Model how to use human-centered design approaches to frame problems, uncover patterns, discover opportunities, and visualize possibilities
  • Establish an ongoing process for managing a flexible conversation design practice that adjusts to varying cycles and user demands


You Have:

  • 6+ years of experience as a conversation designer, chatbot writer, UX designer, or content designer in collaborative environments
  • Understanding of language models, taxonomies, linguistic principles, and AI/ML-driven conversations
  • Design conversational dialogue that scales across locales and languages
  • Experience with and deep curiosity for linguistics and NLP, customer intent recognition, human-centered design, interaction design, information architecture, user research, or content design
  • Training, either formal or on-the-job, in design, computer science, information sciences, psychology, human factors, human-computer interaction, or a related field
