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.

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.
