After Square Wallet Dies, Product Lead Exits

Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

Andrew Borovsky, a founder of a design agency acquired by Square who went on to lead product design for Square’s Wallet app, has left Jack Dorsey’s company. Borovsky announced the news on Twitter on Thursday. Borovsky’s departure comes eight months after Square pulled its digital wallet app, Square Wallet, in favor of an order-ahead app called Square Order that lets users place pickup orders at participating coffee shops and cafes. Both products have been part of Jack Dorsey’s mission to score a breakout hit with consumers that would give merchants an extra reason to use Square’s suite of payment processing and business management tools rather than a competitor’s. Square is still looking for that consumer hit.
