The Microservices Platform produces shared libraries and tools built on the best available technologies to increase the throughput of 400+ engineers and accelerate product release cycles.

Our internal products include a Spring Boot microservices framework that simplifies their interactions with our Kubernetes infrastructure and makes it easy to follow best practices. As the organization grows, the engineering needs have diversified. We are in the middle of reimagining how our tooling can best serve engineers three years from now! This includes integration with cloud native technologies and replacing our internal RPC system. If you are a server-side engineer who enjoys taking ownership of projects and carrying them from concept to adoption, we want to hear from you! You will report to the engineering manager in our New York City headquarters.

All Squarespace employees are working remotely at this time. We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 as we continue our work to build a return-to-work plan that ensures a safe return to our offices and provides flexibility for our employees.
