Our Radical Culture

Our culture is at the core of everything we do. As we grow, we’re looking to hire folks that share our values. This is the code we live by:

  • Think big. Do bigger. Big ideas are meant to be pursued. We have a bias for action, iteration, and impact.

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 office dress code, unlimited PTO, and paid caretaker leave. Note: we are currently 100% remote + likely will be through 2020
  • Diversity + Inclusion: we bring our full selves to work + you can too! Quarterly Radical Girl Crew activities, mother-friendly office space, open communication with our leadership team, and our semi-annual culture surveys ensure each Radical is represented at Square Root.

We’re always looking for people to join and evolve our Radical culture + company. We want you to bring your unique experience and perspective, so don’t worry about checking all the boxes.

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.


Customer Success Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining Square Root, I've been able to use my annual Learn Anything to understand more about photography, attended workshops + classes around HR best practices, and plan to get my certification next. Square Root believes in providing opportunities for every team member + continuously pushes me forward.


HR + Recruiting Coordinator

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.
