The Shipping & Fulfillment Team is a new team being formed in the Commerce Online Stores group. The mission of Online Stores is to enable Squarespace merchants to augment their online presence with a beautiful storefront so that they can transact with their customers. Shipping & Fulfillment is a critical function of any small business & Squarespace wants to develop the tools to make this as seamless as possible. As a team lead, you will work closely with a Product Manager to align on objectives & key results to help Commerce reach its long-term goals. Furthermore, you will work closely with other engineering leaders to define technical strategy & architecture for our growing Commerce platform.

Squarespace is seeking experienced technology leaders to grow our products & the teams that build them. Were looking for engineers who are hands on & still want to code, but who also want to spend a part (<50%) of their time managing & mentoring more junior engineers on the team.

We firmly believe that design is not merely how it looks but how it works. With this in mind, our backend engineers work on Product Engineering teams, which are dedicated to creating the most seamless, integrated products possible. If you are a self-motivated server side engineer who enjoys taking ownership of product initiatives & carrying them from concept to production, we want to hear from you! As a team lead, youd typically be the most senior engineer on a team of 3-5 engineers, & would report to the Engineering Manager in our New York City headquarters.

At this time, all Squarespace employees are working remotely until June 2021. We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 to determine if & when it is safe to return to our offices.
