Since we first opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has
evolved immensely - and so has Square. After enabling anyone to
take a payment and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by
disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn't work together.
So we expanded into software and started building integrated,
omnichannel solutions - to help sellers sell online, manage
inventory, run a busy kitchen, book appointments, engage loyal
buyers, and hire and pay staff. And across it all, we've embedded
financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can
access a business loan and manage their cash flow all in one
Today, we're a partner to sellers of all sizes - large,
enterprise-scale businesses with complex commerce operations,
sellers just starting out, as well as merchants who began selling
with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers scale,
so do our solutions. We all grow together.
There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We're building a
business that is big, meaningful, and lasting. And we are helping
sellers around the world do the same.
The Developer Empowerment team at Square enables developers to be
more effective by building foundational components, frameworks and
tools that aid all stages of the software development life cycle.
