The Product team at Squarespace is dedicated to creating the most seamless, integrated products possible. We firmly believe that design is not just 'how it looks' but 'how it works and feels'. With this in mind, Squarespace is seeking entrepreneurial designers who seek long-term product ownership and are comfortable with a multidisciplinary approach to shipping new products.

Product designers work closely with an engineering partner, taking ownership of entire features or product initiatives from conception to release and beyond. The ideal candidate is highly self-directed, with strong understanding of product development, and the motivation to continually iterate to design the best possible solution.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Design flows and experiences that are incredibly simple and elegant.
Work closely with other designers, engineers, and marketers to ship extraordinary product.
Contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the rest of the product and exec teams.
REQUIREMENTS
Good taste
Strong portfolio featuring examples of interaction design work
Keen product sensibilities, with a desire to discover and fulfill the needs of users (thinking around not just 'how it should look' but 'what we should build')
Experience designing highly interactive web applications
Self-motivated with the ability to take charge or play a supporting role
Clean, elegant HTML & CSS
Formal design education may be a plus or a minus
