Be your own customer
Squarespace is built using Squarespace. Our entire business relies on the same platform and tools our customers pay us for. To that end, we build products and design experiences we would want for ourselves.
Squarespace believes in the power of the individual to create great things. This is what our product enables and our marketing celebrates.
Design is not a luxury
Good design means coalescing hundreds of details into a package that is simple and beautiful. Squarespace strives for excellence in design within everything we do, and iterates relentlessly in order to achieve that ideal.
Create beautiful tools
We believe that we can create products that are not only simple and powerful, but elegant. Using beautiful tools fundamentally enhances both work and life.
Good work takes time
We pursue long term ideas without fear and only release our products when we feel they meet our standards. We do not react to market pressures, but instead respect the creative process and everything else that goes into producing great work.
Optimize towards ideals
While metrics are critical for tracking and testing the performance of our business, they are merely a reflection of our ideas and execution in the market. Our values and ideals are our decision making guide.
