Interface Director
Michael’s day typically begins around 10 AM, when he checks his emails and the bug queue for the day. He’s responsible for everything the user sees and interacts with on Squarespace, and so he collaborates most closely with the front-end dev team. Day-to-day, Michael manages all the parts of the online user experience, including visual elements and interactive features.
