Technical Program Manager, Customer Operations

At Squarespace, we empower people with creative ideas to succeed.

That means delivering beautiful software products to our customers. Technical Program Managers (TPMs) contribute to that mission by making shipping software easier and more predictable.

The Internal Engineering team is looking for a TPM (Individual Contributor) to partner with our engineers to plan and deliver technical projects that enable our award-winning Customer Operations team to reach their goals—today and as we scale. The work you ship will directly support the Customer Operations team’s commitment to providing world-class, 24/7 support to our millions of customers.

You will partner with Engineering Leadership and the Customer Operations team to build and deliver on a technical roadmap. Projects include revamping our customer support tool and customer-facing Squarespace Help website, implementing and supporting third-party integrations (e.g. Zendesk, Aspect), and ensuring we have systems in place to collect and analyze advisor and customer metrics. You will also partner with Engineering Leadership and stakeholders to identify opportunities for process and product optimizations. You will be the point of contact for project communication regarding status, schedule, and scope updates, as well as track risks, dependencies, and blockers.

Throughout your work, you will identify and coach Engineering and Customer Operations stakeholders on process improvements for technical project planning and delivery. You will also partner with other TPMs to provide everyone at Squarespace with a set of tools and workflows to manage technical projects more efficiently and seamlessly.

This role is located in New York and reports to the Internal Engineering TPM Team Lead in New York.

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.
