    An Insider's view of Square Root

    What are some social events your company does?

    We host an annual startup crawl where the public can get to know our Radical team. We also love our theme parties - my favorite was our "Circus" on our front-lawn. I love seeing everyone take part in assembling decorations + being genuinely excited to talk to anyone about what we do. Plus, having fun with your coworkers is a memorable experience!


    Software Engineer

    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.


    Customer Success Director

    What are some things you learned at the company?

    Since joining Square Root, I've been able to use my annual $3k Learn Anything budget to understand more about photography, attend workshops + classes around HR best practices, complete my aPHR certification, and learn more about music production. Square Root believes in providing opportunities for every team member + continuously pushes me forward.


    HR + Recruiting Coordinator

    How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

    Experimentation is deeply embedded in our Radical culture. Our technical teams (herds, as we like to call them) are constantly innovating how we deliver data to our customers. New architectures that increase performance + scale our applications often come out of both our bi-annual Hackathons and the $3k Learn Anything stipend we offer all Radicals.
