The Gig

We’re looking for a stellar engineer to help us build our platform CoEFFICIENT. As an engineer at Square Root, you’ll be collaborating with people from different teams while thinking about how people will use what you’re building, so empathy, approachability, and listening are important parts of the job! Working in an agile environment means a willingness to learn and adapt are vital to success. You should be two steps ahead, planning for scaling, thinking about how your code will interact with other systems, and understanding how your work affects the product and our vision. At the end of the day, our software engineers like to solve problems and believe the best work is the result of finding the simplest path when it comes to difficult challenges. Interested?

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office feels like home, literally. We work out of five 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!


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.


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.


Marketing Manager

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.
