How to Get Hired
We asked Squarespace 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?
At Squarespace, we look for people who possess an innate sense of creativity. Most Squarespace employees have an outlet for expressing their creativity through areas such as art, music, design, photography, writing, etc. We are defined by our insistence on providing an unparalleled customer experience. All of our team members are charged with bringing creativity, honesty, and intellectual rigor to their responsibilities in a never-ending quest to delight our customers. We have high expectations of each other and work as a team to build things we are all proud of. That mindset, along with our execution, has allowed Squarespace to create revolutionary products and grow into the stable business it is today.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Cultural fit is just as important to us as a candidate’s experience and skill set. We want to make sure our employees are passionate about our product, believe in our mission statement, and enjoy what they do. Most importantly, we try to hire good people who respect others and treat them with kindness.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Hiring engineers is always a priority for us and is tough job when you're competing against more established software companies that employ an army of headhunters and recruiters (our technical recruiting team is only two strong). That's why we have to think about creative ways to get our message out there.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
