Software Engineer

at Squarespace in New York, NY   —   Mar 25, 2014   |  
Overview
Software Engineer

Squarespace is trying to push the envelope in user-interface design & experience, web-services, distributed caching and grid computing. We are currently looking for software engineers who are eager to solve some hard problems in these areas. The ideal candidate will be able to work well with minimal supervision and be comfortable with working on various layers of a complex system. Software engineers are expected to have strong communications skills and be comfortable working with not just other software engineers, but also with UI designers and marketing folks.



As a member of the team, you will be working with software engineers with years of startup experience developing and integrating complex backend systems in Java, SQL, & ORM frameworks and highly interactive web applications using nothing more than Javascript, HTML and CSS. Our work environment is relaxed and highly collaborative. Give our application on the web or on the iPhone a try. If you see yourself working on interesting problems with us, we'd love to meet you.
