I figured out today that you can invite you friends to a squad and then look for a match. When you get to the screen that asks if you want to join a squad or do it later. I picked "do it later" option. And my friend and I ended up and the same team. We couldn't spawn on each other, but we were are least on the same team. This is the best I could come up with right now. Maybe someone else has figured out something better.
