HubSpot – Why Work For Us?


About Us

Ensuring that our customers and employees are continually growing and learning has helped make HubSpot a Best Place to Work in the eyes of Glassdoor, Fortune, Entrepreneur, Inc. The Boston Globe, and the Boston Business Journal.

What is HubSpot?

 


HubSpot Culture: Always Be Growing

At HubSpot, we care deeply about helping people grow. That's why we're committed to creating an inclusive company culture where employees can do their best work.

How?
 
The HubSpot Culture Code is a living, breathing document that shares our values, beliefs, and aspirations as a company. (Today, the Culture Code has over 3 million views and counting on Slideshare.) Transparency, autonomy, and our mission of solving for the customer are at the core of how we work. Employees have the freedom and flexibility to have an impact on the business, and to create a work-life balance that is best for them. We offer unlimited vacation, work-from-home policies, and believe results speak louder than where or when you work. We're passionate about helping employees grow both professionally and personally. That's why we offer a range or programs and perks in our global offices to keep learning and skill-building top of mind from tuition reimbursement, weekly Master Classes, fitness consultations, a Free Books Program, a mini-MBA course, and more.
 
But if you ask any employee, the best part about working at HubSpot are the people. HubSpotters have H.E.A.R.T., an acronym we use to capture the qualities that we believe make for great co-workers: Humble, Empathetic, Adaptable, Remarkable, Transparent. Thanks to employees around the world, HubSpot has been named a best place to work by Glassdoor, Fortune, Great Places to Work, the Boston Globe, the Boston Business Journal, Entrepreneur, and more.

With seven offices around the world, HubSpot is a global company committed to transforming businesses with inbound and growing amazing international teams. Every office brings a unique cultural perspective to our organization, helping us grow in new ways, learn from each other, and solve problems more creatively.

HubSpotters are currently transforming and delighting businesses in:




Teams at HubSpot

Like a well-oiled machine, HubSpot is made up of small, tightly-knit, productive teams that work closely together to solve for our customers. Learn more about each department and their mission below.

Product & Engineering

As a product person at HubSpot, you’re part of a small, autonomous team making big things happen. Our customers publish millions of blog posts, send billions of emails, and build new websites with our software. That’s why development is driven by people, not process. If you’re an engineer, product designer, UX expert, or product manager here, you set the vision and move quickly to solve for the customer.

Marketing

As a marketer at HubSpot, you’re on a mission to make the world more inbound. We’re a team of master content creators, social media gurus, and event experts. We’re product marketers, conversion specialists, and graphic designers. Together, we’re transforming the future of inbound marketing to help thousands of businesses grow. Including HubSpot. If you’re metrics-driven and ridiculously curious, this might be the rocket ship for you.

Sales

Forget what you think you know about sales. Like most things at HubSpot, we take an inbound approach to selling. How? By transforming sales to match the way people shop and buy today. Our mantra isn’t “always be closing.” It’s “always be helping.” That means that as a HubSpot salesperson, you’re finding new opportunities for prospects to grow. You’re showing them modern solutions to old business problems. And you’re moving on up as fast as you're driving results.

Customer Success

Our team is on a mission to help customers grow by delivering best-in-class services and support. That means we’re solving for the customer every day. We love coming up with the creative solutions they need to be more successful with HubSpot. We love creating resources that help them become inbound experts. As part of our services and support teams, you’re part of a customer’s journey to professional and personal growth. It’s kind of a big deal.

Business Enablement

HubSpot’s a fast-growing technology company. We’re the team that keeps it all running. Our mission is to enable scalable growth by building reliable technology. Engineers, analysts, and tech experts create and manage systems to power our teams and their work. As a business enabler here, you’re solving for customers by making HubSpot a faster and more innovative company.

People Operations

HubSpot’s on a mission to build a company people love. We’re the team helping us get there by hiring, growing, and delighting amazing people: our employees. From a HubSpotter’s first day to their first peer bonus, people operations is solving for them every step of way. That means we get to play a big role in the future of the company and of our coworkers. People come here to grow their careers so we think big to make sure they do.

Finance

HubSpot’s growing fast. We support the company with world-class financial planning and accounting so the numbers do, too. By enabling business leaders with data and analysis, we give them the information they need to make the best short and long term business decisions. Our team moves fast, thinks big, and takes pride in keeping HubSpot balanced.



 

Career Paths at HubSpot

At HubSpot, we can promise you this: you’ll tackle big problems alongside some of the most talented and dynamic people you’ve ever worked with, and your projects and position will have a big impact. Whether you're a new grad looking for that first full time position, or a senior manager looking for a new challenge in a growing industry, HubSpot has job opportunities for you at every stage of your career.

We invest in our people and optimize for their long term growth and happiness from day one. All new employees spend up to a month in our Cambridge, MA office for training to learn the ins-and-outs of inbound, our product, and the company. Not surprisingly, "Always be learning" is one of our favorite mantras.

Internships at HubSpot
undefined

At HubSpot, interns aren’t interns in the traditional sense of the word. No coffee runs here. Interns make real decisions, produce real work, and drive real results.

  • HubSpot has internship programs during the Spring, Summer and Fall semesters, as well as six-month co-op placements.

  • Each program is built to help our interns learn key marketing, coding, and business skills, and also take advantage of the the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a rapidly growing software company, while having some fun along the way, of course!

  • In fact, we invest so much in our interns that a large percentage of them go on to accept full time positions with HubSpot. Many of our team leaders today started as interns and continue year after year to develop their careers with us.


Start Your Career at HubSpot

We know you might not have it all figured out after graduation, but relax, you don’t have to!

  • At HubSpot, we welcome recent grads into a variety of roles and opportunities including, but certainly not limited to, internships, entry-level sales and marketing roles, product engineers, and technical support engineers.

  • For those who are passionate about marketing, we also offer a full-time marketing leadership rotational program that gives new grads experience in technical support and different sectors of the marketing team, eventually allowing them to settle where their interest and expertise most align.

  • Just because you begin your career with one team at HubSpot doesn’t mean you will be there forever. It’s just that, a beginning. Alumni of our entry-level roles are uniquely positioned to launch into different divisions of the company and have gone on to spearhead some of our most innovative initiatives to date.

Grow Your Career at HubSpotundefined

As we continue to grow and expand, HubSpot recognizes the need to involve individuals with tried and true management leadership experience at the highest levels.

Don’t miss the opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of our customers while driving the future of our business forward, be it in sales, marketing, engineering, HR, or services and support. Your insight is invaluable, and we are eager to learn from you.

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Every part of the interview process was extremely well thought out and honestly enjoyable from a candidate stand point. The team really puts the effort into understanding your baseline for Inbound and if a good fit after the initial video interview (worst, most awkward part for me) and phone screen making sure the candidate is set up for success when talking to a hiring manager.

    You definitely get put through the gambit during the onsite portion. I spoke to three managers and two directors in 30 minute sequential meetings. All were great, but particularly the Service Director. It really wasn’t an interview after the first minute or two of talking to him. It was a conversation, and an insightful, engaging one at that. A++

    From the minute you’re brought on, you have a huge wealth of freedom and autonomy to just get things.. done. Everyone deeply believes in the company and the product and I may have had one or the other in previous roles but rarely if ever both with other companies. Definitely cool.

    Cons

    Training can at times lack structure. There were times during the two week training you would come in, have a session for an hour and have a blank calendar the rest of the day. Perfectly fine if you use good judgement (hint) but you may struggle if you’re not used to building out your own day or if you learn best in traditional student-teacher dynamic.

    Advice to Management

    Being more consistent with feedback. One-two pro tips can often be helpful but doesn’t always help explain the big picture behind why a certain tool works how it does or how we could best leverage and recognize specific situations for an individual customer. At the end of the day, I just want to get better and feedback could be more cohesive and plentiful at times.

    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.
