Senior Product Designer, Internal Products

| Greater NYC Area

Squarespace is hiring a Senior Product Designer to support the development of the internal products and business applications that power our organization’s growth across Customer Operations, Marketing, Finance, Strategy and more. You will establish a design presence within our internal engineering teams, and help build out and lead a design team around them as the company continues to expand.

You should be excited to try out new things and help develop our style, internally.

Teams at Squarespace are deeply collaborative, and each member has wide responsibilities and freedom to act. You will be challenged in an ambitious, ever-changing organization that values vision, execution, persistence, and flexibility.

  • Participate in user research and testing, ensuring usability and product consistency
  • Follow both large and small projects through, beyond delivery
  • Collaborate on evolving our style guides
  • Recruit and manage designers as needed to support the efforts of the team

Qualifications

  • 5+ years of digital/product design experience
  • 2+ years of management
  • Well versed in, and opinionated about visual and user experience design
  • Well rounded understanding of information architecture
  • Great taste and aesthetic sensibility
  • Idealistic, yet pragmatic

A portfolio of relevant work is required for consideration. It should illustrate your involvement and how you contributed to solving specific problems.

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

People Tech Manager

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.
