In April 2014 Squarespace raised $40 million in Series B funding and promised to invest the new funds into the company expansion. The time has come, and they’ve announced the opening of Squarespace’s third office in Portland, Oregon. The new office is up and running with 22 local employees and 7 members of the New York team whose main task is to bring in the culture and core values of the company.
