How to Get Hired
We asked HubSpot for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We are always looking for candidates who are unequivocally committed to improving their own work and willing to go the extra mile. We know we have found the right candidate when a reference check or role play reveals that they will go to any means necessary to achieve a goal for a customer or to improve an experience for their team.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show don’t tell. We look for people who like to roll up their sleeves and get to work. We love it when candidates demonstrate their commitment to inbound, to HubSpot, and to their potential fit for the job. For example, one recent intern hire created her own personal Culture Code as part of her application process. In another case, one of our long-time marketers was hired because he created a fully integrated marketing campaign called “Hire Me HubSpot,” complete with a webinar, landing pages, Facebook ads, and social media promotion. A term our co-founder Dharmesh Shah uses to describe how we screen for talent is a candidate that is “shockingly helpful”. This quality extends to the way in which they solve problems for their team or company.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are currently hiring in a number of departments. Most of our opportunities are in our engineering organization and we are always looking for best in class developers, designers, and product managers. There are also openings on our support team who are critical to our customers’ success and a huge part of our ability to help customers grow. Lastly, we are seeking great folks for our sales team, particularly candidates who speak languages other than English for our international offices.
