    • Name

      Trish Craine

    • Position

      Team Lead, Technical Program Management


    Trish is the Team Lead for the Technical Program Management (Infrastructure) group at Squarespace. TPMs are the driving force of organization, transparency, and efficiency throughout the organization – and Trish’s personality combination of control freak and productivity nerd means she truly enjoys what she does everyday. On the flip side, Trish has a two-year-old and a four-year-old at home – and most days it feels like she has no control, nor is anything organized or efficient. That’s what they mean by work-life balance, right?
