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!

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.
