About Squarespace

We help people with creative ideas succeed. We do this by providing our users with all the tools they need: a website builder, blogging platform, and hosting service — all of which blends elegant design and sophisticated engineering.

Company Culture

While Squarespace is widely recognized as a leader in the design space, many tend to overlook the incredibly strong engineering culture that supports our sophisticated platform. One of our core values is “design is not a luxury”, and this applies not only to the beautiful templates and layouts Squarespace users interact with every day, but also to the design of the software we build. We also encourage peer mentorships through various channels like forums where frontend and/or backend engineers gather to discuss standards we want to adopt or present to the group results of their research. A couple of times a year we organize hackweeks during which engineers and designers work on projects they define themselves and present back to the group at the end of the week.
