Squarespace is a design-centric product company at heart whose mission is to be the all-in-one platform for anyone who wants to stand out. You will be challenged in an organization that values vision, execution, and persistence. You will take ownership of our product by solving complex problems in simple, elegant ways. Product designers at Squarespace are embedded within product teams that are deeply collaborative, and each member is directly responsible for the team’s success.

Video is the most compelling medium of our time. It allows you to learn a new skill, share a heartwarming moment, or even make a living. We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer excited about the potential video has for our creators. Our creators are passionate about what they do and video is a perfect vehicle to share that passion. We’re not settling with the baseline video experience on today’s web, we’re in pursuit of defining the potential for our creators. Help us build the future of video for the millions of creators using our service.

You’ll work alongside a Senior Staff Product Designer on the Video team and report to the Product Design Manager.
