Our Radical Culture

Our culture is at the core of everything we do. As we grow, we’re not only looking to hire the best and brightest, but we’re also looking for people that share our values. Here's the code we live by:

  • Think big. Do bigger. We think big ideas are meant to be pursued. So, we think critically and have a bias for action and impact. We continually iterate to deliver smarter direction and better software.
  • Be customer-inspired. We aim to over-deliver and delight by doing what’s best, not just what’s expected. That’s why we make it a priority to understand how our customers operate and the challenges that they face.
  • Partner. We build strong relationships by having a partnership mindset – internally and externally. We go above and beyond to help our customers, and one another succeed.
  • Thrive. We set our internal bar high so that we can bring enthusiasm, speed, and innovation. We revere personal drive, growth, and balance. We celebrate successes, and, sometimes, we just celebrate.

The Good Stuff

Founded in Austin, Texas, we’ve been bootstrapped and profitable since our start in 2006. Along the way, we’ve added a slew of perks inspired by our team of Radicals. Here are some fan favorites:

  • Flexibility: no dress code, unlimited PTO, and paid parental leave
  • Competitive benefits and compensation
  • A cozy campus of 1920’s craftsman homes in downtown
  • Team lunches, stocked kitchen + bar, coffee-snob compliant coffee machines
  • Radicals get $3,000 a year to learn anything (seriously!). PEOPLE Magazine recognized our Learn Anything program in their 2019 list of "50 Companies that Care," located here.

Square Root is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

An Insider's view of Square Root

What projects are you most excited about?

I find our Move a Metric projects really exciting at Square Root. We work with clients to identify a key metric to improve. Using a combination of data science and technology we formulate a plan to help the client move that metric in a positive direction. Through this program, we’re able to show strong business value.

Jessica

Customer Success Director

How does the company support your career growth?

Career goals at Square Root are supported by mentorship, a learn anything budget (that really is for learning anything!), and regular 1x1's with our CEO to talk about anything! More than that, though, we have a team that supports growth by always providing new and different opportunities to develop skills and show off ones you've gained.

Mary

Marketing Manager

What are some social events your company does?

Square Root invests in work/life balance. They take care to include my family regularly in events like holiday parties, the family picnic, happy hour invites, and much more. When they do, the attention to detail and care to make the moment special for us really makes an impact. It isn’t just checking a box.
