The Infrastructure Engineering teams are looking for experienced and passionate software and systems engineers to help in ensuring that customers around the world can access Squarespace sites reliably and quickly. We work together with the product teams to maintain the reliability of our features that are backed by a fleet of microservices, growing Squarespace's customer presence on the public Internet, and terminate internet traffic around the globe.
The Traffic team facilitates user requests from the public internet to the Squarespace infrastructure for millions of websites. Our job is to make sure those requests arrive at the correct backend safely, securely, and quickly. We manage all routing and Traffic infrastructure at Squarespace. This includes TLS termination and certificate renewal, application firewalls, response caches (Varnish), CDNs, L7 application load balancing, service to service communication through a Service Mesh based on Envoy Proxy, and Squarespace’s external DNS providers.
We firmly believe in the SRE philosophy of applying software engineering methodologies to operational tasks. We communicate reliability with SLOs and know that if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. We create self-healing and self-orchestrating distributed systems. We operate multiple physical data centers and leverage this fact to our advantage with the ability to control every part of the entire stack. You will report to the team manager in NYC. Traffic is a remote-first team with members who work full-time from remote locations and members who frequently work from home.
Squarespace makes beautiful products to help people with creative ideas succeed. By blending elegant design and sophisticated engineering, we empower millions of people — from individuals and local artists to entrepreneurs shaping the world’s most iconic businesses — to share their stories with the world. Squarespace’s team of more than 1,000 is headquartered in downtown New York City, with offices in Dublin and Portland. For more information, visit www.squarespace.com/about.
