Software Engineer - Frontend (Univ. Grad)

| Greater NYC Area

Squarespace provides creative tools and services to help anyone build and manage their brand online. For more than a decade, we’ve empowered millions of people to take control of their online presence like never before. We’re pushing boundaries both creative and technical, tackling an increasing set of our customers’ needs to manage their business. We’re also helping new grads like you take what you learned and apply your skills in a wide variety of settings.

Our software engineers build the tools that let our customers succeed, as well as tools that let our engineering team succeed. If you liked the more creative aspects of college (maybe you took a video game design class?) perhaps you’d enjoy working with a team trying to figure out how to dynamically stage a website for a user so that they feel “at home” from the moment they start. If you liked your database class, perhaps you’d enjoy working with a team trying to figure out how to efficiently structure the content of millions of websites so that it’s both fast to serve and easy to reason about. If you liked systems engineering classes, maybe you’d enjoy working on our core services team that builds the framework upon which other engineers at squarespace build their products?

We’ve got openings on teams that work up and down the stack, from routing network traffic all the way up to generating dynamic user interfaces. Whether you want to hone your skills in an area you’ve already explored in college or through an internship, or whether you’d like to try your hand at a different level of the stack, opportunities exist at Squarespace.

Most engineering teams at Squarespace are around five people -- meaning that as a new grad, you’ll have the benefit of more senior engineers on the team you can learn from, but also enough space to tackle difficult problems yourself and work on refining your skills through solving impactful, meaningful problems.

  • Collaborate on creating fulfilling user experiences to serve our growing userbase
  • Write high-quality code (mostly JavaScript)
  • Learn the codebase and become more of an independent problem solver

Qualifications

  • BS/BSE/BSc/BA degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, HCI (MS preferred) or related
  • Strong knowledge of front end concepts and technologies (JavaScript, DOM, HTML, CSS3)
  • Strong understanding of web application development
  • A sincere commitment to crafting readable and reliable code

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.
