What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

The Square Risk team works to protect our customers and Square from financial risk coming from Fraud, Payment Disputes, and Credit. We keep our customers safe while $160B+ flows through Square annually, and we allow the entire company to take risks and grow. We take pride in our work and our mission to protect Square, protect our customers, and make a complicated and sometimes painful process understandable to all.

We are looking for a Technical Program Manager to lead cross-team initiatives focused on fraud incident response management and cross fraud roadmap initiatives related to detection or new product launches. You will be a strategic partner across product, engineering, machine learning, policy and operations.

You will use your technical skills to understand the end-to-end fraud system, including software capabilities, ML detection, operational processes, fraud policies and the dependencies across teams that the fraud system creates. You will use that knowledge to plan and execute complex fraud and incident response programs with multiple stakeholders. You will identify program goals, delivery risks and develop mitigation strategies. You will identify and remove obstacles to delivery to ensure the Fraud team continues to ship remarkable products and reduce fraud activity across the Square ecosystem. You will make decisions on a highly ambiguous space, propose roadmap changes, and influence others.

You will:

  • Partner closely with product, machine learning, data science, engineering, policy, and operation teams to plan and execute multi-team and multi-stakeholder programs and initiatives.
  • Use your understanding of risk, fraud and program management to identify dependencies, critical path / “long poles,” blockers, and key execution risks and develop actionable mitigation strategies.
  • Identify opportunities for detection improvements (process, signals, etc) that enhance key results for fraud types across various fraud verticals
  • Periodically review and communicate key metrics, developments, updates, project health and problems, and manage expectations of all stakeholders, both technical and non-technical.
  • Align large cross-team projects by driving annual and quarterly planning processes.
  • Drive and improve processes for managing incidents and improving detection.


  • Technical Program Management or equivalent management experience in a mid- to large-sized company running complex programs with multiple stakeholders for at least 5 years.
  • Experience delivering complex projects that involve cross functional contributors on-time and within expected results.
  • Experience building sustainable, repeatable processes to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
