  • Partner. We build strong relationships by having a partnership mindset – internally and externally. We go above and beyond to help our customers and one another succeed.
  • Thrive. We set our internal bar high so that we can bring enthusiasm, speed, and innovation to the enterprise. We empower each Square Root employee to take ownership, act and iterate to make everything we do – from work product to working environment – better. We revere personal drive, growth, and balance.  We celebrate successes, and, sometimes, we just celebrate.
