    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    First was standard HR phone screen verifying my experience... then I had to solve a technical problem in 3hours or less before coming on site. It was rest related and involved sort and recreating complex data structures in json. It was a hard problem I found, and I did not get past it. The HR person was really cool and emphasized that if I worked on my skills more they would still be open to working with me.

    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Had an alumni from my school submit my resume during their March hiring and got a response within a few days to set up a quick phone call. Typical questions asking how I found out about the position and why I was interested. At the end of the call she said I moved onto the next round which was a video interview with a demo. The tasks I was asked to do were very simple. Later that week I got an email saying I moved onto the next round, which was an in person interview. Met with 3 different managers who were all super nice. Definitely harder interview questions that I really had to think about. Overall enjoyed the process!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    I first had a brief 30-40 minute phone interview with a recruiter. I then scheduled a 2 hour in person interview and met with 4 current HubSpot employees. Everyone was so kind and accommodating! The process after the in person interview was so quick and I was offered a position within 4 days of interviewing. I am so excited to be starting at HubSpot and cannot wait to get to know everyone on the team!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    This was probably my favorite interview I've ever done. The online screening was an interesting problem. If you do not solve this, they do not follow up. Then they had a couple of phone calls to get acquainted with the recruiter to show my interest in the company. Then the final round was two- 1 hour- interviews with various engineers.

    Channel Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot (Cambridge, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I originally applied to the Culture & Experience Coordinator position through an employee referral in March 2018 but did not receive an offer. While speaking to the recruiter on my feedback call (love that they do these!) I inquired about a Customer Success Manager position that was just posted. She told me that someone else recruits for that position and that she would reach out to her. By the next business day she put me in touch with the recruiter Johanna Fleming who suggested I apply for the Channel Consultant role.

    I had a 30 minute phone interview with Johanna and then scheduled another 30 minute phone interview with one of the managers. Both interviews were very conversational and were focused on getting to know me. A week later I came into the Cambridge headquarters for an onsite interview with 5 members of the team. I was given a case study to prepare before my interviews that I discussed with one of the managers. After my interviews I had another phone interview with Kate Walsh, VP of Global Partner Services, which was quick but was used to get to know me and why I wanted to work at HubSpot. The next day I received the offer and gladly accepted!

    All in all, the process was timely, transparent, and very professional. I want to give a shout out to Johanna for being awesome during this process and providing me with loads of insight and advice!

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot (Boston, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through the company website and was invited to submit a webcam interview. The webcam interview was relatively easy as HubSpot asked several questions just to get to know you better. Then I was invited to a phone interview with the recruiter and she asked some questions regarding why you want to work for the company and why sales?

    HubSpot was very diligent on getting back to me and keeping in touch. Thought I did relatively well on the interview process and felt the phone call went smoothly, but unfortunately the company didn't go forth with my application with the hiring manger.

    It would have been helpful if HubSpot provided feedback as to why they don't go forth with my candidacy as that would have been better than just being rejected and not knowing why.

    The interviewers could have been more specific surrounding what type of answers they were looking for as well.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HubSpot.

    Interview

    Hubspot has always been one of my dream companies to work for. Unfortunately it didn't work out. I talked with a HR person, and did coding challenge in 2hours(given 3hours max time limit). After that I did a video call with the Tech lead, which went well too. Here comes the issue, as I am currently working full-time for my old company, we have a hectic month going on. In my current situation I cannot take a whole day off to fly to MA to attend an in person. I requested them, if they can do the other rounds via video call. Apparently they can't do it, I am sad, I have lost the great opportunity. But the whole interview process so far was a great experience.
