Strategy Intern - MBA Summer 2020

| Greater NYC Area

At Squarespace, our platform empowers millions of people — from individuals and local artists to entrepreneurs shaping the world’s most iconic businesses — to share their stories and create an impactful, design-forward, and easy-to-manage online presence. From our headquarters in NYC, we are actively working to grow our product’s reach and bring the future of online publishing to a worldwide audience.

We are in search of an MBA Strategy Intern to join our Business Development trio, part of the larger Squarespace Strategic Initiatives team, based in New York. In this role, you will be responsible for helping us guide the company toward the goal of diversifying the product portfolio. If you get excited about the idea of joining a small but effective team, working closely with Product and Engineering counterparts, and inventing (rather than following!) a playbook, then this role is for you.

This role is based in our New York City headquarters and reports to a Manager on the Business Development team.

    • Work cross-functionally with Product and Engineering to scope possibilities and understand their acceptance criteria for a strong integration
    • Identify top potential integration partners for specific areas of the product 
    • Write the strategy that will serve as an execution guide to a full-time member of the team, after the internship. (If you have time to begin executing during your time with us, even better!)
  • Drive market research to understand local user needs, preferences, cultural differences, competitive environment, and any local insights that should inform integration strategies in key non-US markets
    • Recommend top potential integration partners in these select markets to ensure all Squarespace customers have the right set of integrations from which to choose
  • Collaborate with current Business Development team on on-going projects

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Currently in the first year of a full-time MBA program
  • Experience in partnerships, business development, or related experience
  • Experience working autonomously and cross-functionally in a growth stage company
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with proven ability to influence decision making across teams
  • Strong analytical skills and an ability to research independently to build business cases
  • Good product understanding and ability to prioritize and articulate business needs to product and engineering is preferred
  • Experience working with APIs preferred
  • Language ability in another language besides English is a plus

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.
