  • What kinds of customers use our product, and how do these differences influence their preferences?
  • How can we provide small businesses with tools to be more successful?
  • How should we define “success” of the launch of a new product and why?
  • What product experiences should we design and test to evaluate lift in key business metrics from product offering, pricing, and core design changes?

  • Collaborate with Data Engineering to identify and build tools and infrastructure that helps us make better data driven decisions, faster (such as event pipelines, synthetic events, Python packages)
  • Continuously seek out opportunities to further develop your analytical, communication, statistical, and programming toolkits

QUALIFICATIONS

  • 2+ years of relevant analytical experience working with data or MS in a relevant technical field (experience working with Product organizations a plus)
  • Strong critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • Comfort and expertise communicating effectively with a wide-range of audiences (such as product managers, engineers, business development managers, occasionally executives)
  • Strong ability to devise data-driven solutions to business problems
  • Ability to drive impact by thoughtfully tackling open-ended problems
  • Strong data intuition and ability to think probabilistically
  • Basic to intermediate knowledge of SQL

An Insider's view of Squarespace

What are some social events your company does?

In the past we've had trivia nights, talent shows, and video game tournaments. My background is actually in theatre, so amazingly had the opportunity of taking to the microphone and hosting some of the events here.

Jose Paz

Community Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Our team’s mission is to configure, integrate, automate, and report on all HR systems. This means we are constantly trying to do things no one has ever done before. Some of the challenges we regularly encounter are hacking together system integrations, implementing controls to ensure data integrity, and manual task automation for our users.

Paul

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As the Data Engineering team has grown, I've become a team lead and learning lots of new technologies, such as Postgres and Airflow.

Polina

Senior Software Engineer

What are some social events your company does?

The company holiday party is a pretty big social event. Each location has one and I’ve crashed three of the four parties in Ireland as well. At this point, if I don’t go to the Dublin holiday party, I might get messages asking if I’m okay.
