Are you a Squaremouth Candidate?
Ideal candidates will have an intrinsic desire for personal growth and professional success. They will be sociable, passionate about their work, laid-back and fun. They must be able to work with a lively group of overachievers. They will teach themselves, learn from others, and take ownership of their successes and challenges.
The organizational structure of Squaremouth is flat, so candidates must be able to multi-task and work autonomously in a constantly changing environment. Because there is no traditional hierarchy, everyone works as part of a team. There is no “typical day” in this office, so it is best-suited to those who thrive in the absence of structure and routine.
Squaremouth is a fast-paced and exciting company which strongly encourages employee input and ideas
Most of what we do is a group effort, including interviews and pay raises. At any time, employees can request pay raises, which are determined by a majority vote from their co-workers.
With this uniqueness comes the dedication to the Squaremouth Way, best described as the constant pursuit of perfection, unfettered attention to detail, incredible customer service and a burning desire to do things better tomorrow.
A vital part of our commitment to incredible customer service depends upon every Squaremouth employee, including the CEO, spending time each day working directly with customers.
