How to Get Hired
We asked Square Root for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We want folks who are not just smart and kind, but that also embody our values: Think Big - Do Bigger, Be Customer Inspired, Partner, and Thrive. Our values encourage innovation, empathy, collaboration, and learning; they’re an internal bar, but they’re also the way we interact with the world. Folks who fit these values are the people we want. On top of that, we’re looking for entrepreneurial spirits interested in a fast-paced software company that can adapt and grow with us.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
There are two big ways prospects can snag our attention. One is the cover letter! We read each one, seriously. Make the best of it and use it as your chance to tell us why you want to work at Square Root. The second way is to attend our events. Twice a year, we open our doors for the ATX Startup Crawl. It’s a time for folks to come meet the team and see us in our natural habitat. And, they are just a lot of fun! Past themes include: Zombies v. Vampires (a Halloween affair) and Viva SR (Vegas). To get on the invite list, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see you there!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’re in grow mode! We need a little bit of everything, but our focus for 2016 will be adding Data Engineers, Developers, Sales Directors, and Technical Program Managers!
