An Insider's view of Square Root

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office feels like home, literally. We work out of four homes in Clarksville and they're pretty cozy. While others stress about parking downtown, we are meditating in our living room, hugging our dogs, or making terrariums. If you're in the neighborhood and hear a dinner bell, it's because we've landed a new client. Come and celebrate with us!

Emily

Employee Experience Manager

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.
