  • Square, a fintech firm known for its card payment services, also operates the online money transfer service ‘Cash App’ – though this is currently only operational in the US and the UK.
  • The firm is now looking to expand its services to the European market via its headquarters in Dublin.
  • In a job advertisement, the firm said that it was looking for a candidate who could develop strong partnerships with other stakeholders in Europe.

Financial technology firm Square has commenced a search for a new senior figure to join its team in Dublin.

A job advertisement posted by the company states that it is looking for a European operations manager to work on its ‘Cash App’ service, which allows for online money transfers to be made.

Cash App is a relatively well-known name in the UK and the US's money transfer industries.

It is believed to have a userbase of close to 30 million people in those markets.

However, the service is yet to properly launch in Europe.

Square does, however, have a European base in the Irish capital city.

It uses this base to work on its card reader and software provision.

Square acquired what is known as an ‘electronic money license’ from the Irish central bank recently.

This allows it to shift its European operations to Dublin following Brexit, the terms of which were finalised last week.

The new European operations manager for Cash App will be focused on tasks such as building relationships across the continent, the job advertisement reads.

The successful candidate will “be a leader in the European market for Cash App, maintaining and building on key internal and external relationships”.

It also indicated that the strategic plan for Square’s European expansion is likely to rely at least in part on partnerships – a common move for firms in the online money transfer sphere.

The candidate will “own and optimize strategic European partnerships for Cash App through detailed and proactive partner management, working with partners to define, iterate, stabilize and enable new initiatives and features,” the firm said.

The advert went on to highlight the popularity of Cash App in the markets in which it already exists.

It claimed that Cash App is “loved by customers and pop culture”.

It also claimed to have “consistently held the top spot for finance in the App Store for many years, seeing more engagement with millions of followers across social media in a day than most brands see in a year”.

In terms of qualifications, Square is asking for applicants with over eight years in “partner management” and operations.

It also requires someone with a strong understanding of how the payments sector works.

Square’s head is Jack Dorsey, who is also famous for leading the social media and microblogging website Twitter.
