Job Description

We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven't stopped there. 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. 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.

The Localization team is responsible for bringing Square products and services to the world. Our goal is to continue building upon our US success by delivering innovative, simple and unique experiences to our customers around the globe.

* Evangelize international and localization best practices.

You Have:

* 4+ years of experience in Localization project management including vendor management or equivalent

* Passionate about globalizing software and hardware

* Outstanding organizational skills: ability to handle multiple projects for multiple locales simultaneously

* Ability to identify requirements and prioritize key deliverables

* Experience with CAT tools, LQA tools and machine translation post-editing tasks
