Which Web Designer Should You Be Using Right Now?
What’s the best job in web design?
The answer depends on how you want to work and who you want working for you.
A job at Squarespace, the world’s largest online marketplace for all things web design, includes a web designer.
And while the hiring process might seem like it requires more than a basic basic skillset, it’s really not.
Squarespaces hiring manager, Sarah Darnell, told BuzzFeed News that the hiring team is “not looking for a programmer.
It’s a person with a solid knowledge of web design and an understanding of responsive design.”
“The people we hire are the people that have the ability to get to the bottom of things and get things done,” Darnale said.
“They know how to build a website, they know how and where to get data from, and they know what’s out there.”
Squaresplash was founded in 2007 by an entrepreneur named Mike Darnells, and it has since grown to include thousands of designers and developers.
And Darnales own design skillsets aside, he’s also a web developer.
Darnall’s background also comes in handy when hiring new designers.
“We’ve had to hire a lot of people from our team,” he told BuzzFeed.
“And I’m pretty lucky because I’ve been working with a lot people.
I’ve met lots of amazing people, so it’s not like I’m just throwing all of them together.”
A job search can also help you understand what type of person you want.
“You’re hiring someone who is very creative and is looking for something that’s fun,” Dagnell said.
Squared is one of the largest and most influential web design companies on the planet.
Dagnall, who has worked for the company for four years, has a unique perspective on the company.
He’s the founder and CEO of SquaresPlash, and he said the company has been able to hire talent because the site is very accessible.
“It’s the biggest website in the world.
There are literally thousands of people looking for jobs,” Daganell said, adding that the site offers “a huge variety of different design styles and different types of design, depending on what you’re looking for.”
“We’re the most widely used website in terms of the number of jobs, but we’ve also had some really great candidates, too,” he continued.
“So if you’ve got a creative background that you’re able to identify with, then it’s a really great fit.”
When you hire a web design company, you’re not just hiring the best person for your job, but also for your company.
“There’s so much diversity within the workforce at the company, and that’s important,” Daginell said of the diversity that exists at Squared.
“But also we have a diversity of skills, and people are just coming in, so that’s really exciting.”
Dagnill said that when hiring is about having the best candidate, they want people who can build something out of scratch.
“If you have a skill set that you want people to build on, and you have that skill set, then that’s a good fit for the job, I think,” he added.
The hiring process may be a bit more daunting when hiring for a web site.
You’re likely to be asked to submit resume, portfolio, and CV.
And that’s where Squarespash’s hiring team can help you determine if you’re the right candidate for the position.
Daganells said that they use a variety of methods to make sure that the job candidate has the skills and background needed for the role.
“Our hiring process is just a simple, straight-forward process, which is a very basic, non-interventionist process,” he explained.
If you don’t, we can go back and check your previous work.”
After checking that, the hiring manager will ask about your experience with HTML, design, and web design.
“Once we’re done that, we then go to the interview and we’ll look at your CV and make sure you have the experience to be a good web designer,” Dagenell said about the interview process.
Dagenells said Squarespy is one part of the company that hires a diverse workforce.
“Because we have all these people that are just in this niche and we’re really lucky to have a diverse team,” Dangill said.
When hiring, Daganelli said that he doesn’t mind if the candidate doesn’t have a previous experience in web or digital design.
But when hiring, he said that the process can be a little intimidating.
