Squarespace’s professional user program, Circle, provides support, inspiration, and community for tens of thousands of independent creatives who build websites for clients on Squarespace. The Circle team is expanding its capacity to create skill-building, sales, and marketing resources, which will be made available exclusively to our community, and is hiring a new team member to lead that effort.

As the Circle Content Manager, you will help shape a key component of the Circle growth strategy and be responsible for achieving clearly defined goals around member engagement and website building activity. The library you create will be a mix of topical and evergreen resources executed in a variety of media and formats, and each piece will meet Squarespace’s high design standards. Your work will further establish Circle as a trusted authority on the art, science, and business of website design, and empower our community to grow their own businesses and help their clients succeed online.

This role is based in New York and reports into the Creative Ecosystem Manager.

  • Collaborate with colleagues on the Product and Marketing teams to ensure that all Circle members understand the depth and breadth of Squarespace’s offerings and can communicate our value propositions to clients
  • Collaborate with colleagues on the Circle team on the development of resources that reinforce or contribute to other Circle initiatives (such as the Authorized Trainers program)

Media Strategist

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day by moderating our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram mostly) and replying to any comments we can help with. Then it's checking in with the Community Team on ongoing/upcoming projects, followed by getting on the grind of creating/rehearsing content for our in-person workshops or online webinars. And meetings!

Community Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had the opportunity to work on three different teams in my time at Squarespace. Part of that is the nature of an evolving start up, but it’s also due to the flexibility and trust that the organization's leaders put in employees. If you're passionate about a particular project, you're able to spend time to make that initiative a reality.

I work on the database team and our biggest challenge is scaling our architecture to handle query load with low latency. Collaboration with Engineering makes this happen. Each Engineering Team at Squarespace contributes in a unique way to make our platform as fast as possible for our customers.
