Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

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?

Before Squarespace, I had been in management consulting. Squarespace provided the opportunity to both transition into tech but also into a technical role as a Data Scientist on the Strategy team. I loved working across the business to develop insights and recommendations and then continue working with those teams to see our ideas brought to life.

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.
