The Squarespace Finance team is seeking an eager and intellectually curious Financial Analyst to partner with our Product organization. You will partner with the FP&A Manager to explore a range of business questions, ultimately driving company strategy, empowering executive decision making, and guiding the company towards achieving its goals. We help set the company-wide targets, provide forecasts and real time analytics to executives and business leaders, and partner cross functionally to evaluate strategic business and product decisions. The ideal candidate will not only have superb technical skills but also strong interpersonal skills and the ability to influence and present to all levels of the organization.

We expect this Analyst to be a proactive member of the FP&A team, asking a lot of questions to learn on the job and grow along with the company. You will dig into challenges – from routine operations, to forecasting and planning – to connect the dots and draw valuable insights for the business. You will also develop strong relationships with the leaders on your partner teams, therefore should have strong communication and presentation skills to translate complex trends into easily digestible discussion points. This is the perfect opportunity to use your critical thinking and analytical abilities to learn the inner workings of a successful organization.

You will report into the FP&A Manager, and be based in our New York headquarters. We have introduced our Flexible Work Philosophy for Squarespace employees, which you can find on our career page. For those who will work out of our offices 1-5 days a week, we have also introduced a detailed return to office approach to guarantee a safe return for our Squarespace employees.
