We are excited to announce Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work® named Square Root one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women. Square Root ranked 32nd in the overall list and was the top Austin-based company included in the annual ranking. This award means a lot to Square Root because it’s based on actual feedback and evaluations given by employees.
One of Square Root’s goals as a company is to create a positive work environment where every employee is able to succeed. We focus on meeting employees where they are, regardless of where they are in life. This has helped us build an atmosphere that values individuality and everyone feels able to do their best work.
This absolutely rings true for me. I love working at Square Root because I don’t have to be someone different at work than I am in real life. I feel empowered to tackle new challenges and opportunities that move my career forward. While this requires a lot of hard work, I’ve never felt like my work-life balance has been compromised. My managers have always worked with me to make sure I strike the balance that allows my career to grow.
Although this award is focused on women, Square Root values diversity within the company and sets out to hire the best people for the job. And with that, we’d like to share what some of Square Rooters have to say about this award.
“I recently had my first baby. During my pregnancy and my maternity leave, I was amazed by the support I received from my team, as well as everyone at Square Root. I’m currently transitioning back from my maternity leave. It’s wonderful to be able to make such a smooth transition, makes this time of life less hectic and allows me to enjoy being a new mom knowing things are under control at work.” – Jessica, Customer Success
“Interning at Square Root has been awesome from day one. Being a college student, I really needed an internship experience that would help me to grow my career skills without compromising my success at school. Square Root has exceeded my expectations in their ability to help me take on interesting challenges and continue learning each day. I’ve had the opportunity to explore beyond my initial role here, which has helped me truly get a grasp on all that the company does.” Regan, Intern
“I love that Square Root emphasizes wellness as a tenet for happier employees. As a yoga teacher, I am able to bring my passion into the workplace by leading weekly meditations, and I’ve also taught a few yoga classes in the evening as well. I feel like I can contribute to everyone’s well being, and my colleagues tell me they feel more grounded as well!” Sherrie, Marketing
