Perks and Programs

We asked HubSpot to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • People of Color at HubSpot (POCaH): The mission of this group is to create a culture that attracts, retains, promotes, and empowers HubSpotters of color by creating safe spaces, providing resources for career development, and offering educational opportunities to the HubSpot community.
  • Women at HubSpot: The mission of the Women at HubSpot group is to create a culture that attracts, retains, promotes, and empowers women by identifying opportunities towards career growth.
  • LGBTQ Alliance: The LGBTQ Alliance aims to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer HubSpotters through the creation of a safe, respectful community. The Alliance further envisions a more thoughtful, informed and inclusive environment for all HubSpotters through meaningful engagement and conversation with peers, and commits to improving the lived experiences of others in the communities we all inhabit.
  • FirstGens in Tech: Our goal for FirstGens in Tech is to provide first generation students with the context, community, and real life examples of amazing first gen people doing great things in tech. First Generation students have unlimited potential, but they may not have close friends, family members, or colleagues who work in the tech space. Because of that, they may not see many (or any) real-life examples of people who work in tech. Our goal is to provide those examples and show first gen-ers their true potential.
  • Healthy@HubSpot: Healthy@HubSpot is a company-wide initiative designed to help interested employees live healthier at work and beyond through programming, benefits, facilities, content, and nutritious snack options. One of the benefits included in this initiative is HubSpot's on-site gym in Cambridge (with subsidized gym memberships in other offices). On top of lifting machines, free weights, cardio equipment, and a spin studio, the gym also includes free circuit training by professional trainers three times per week, yoga classes twice per week, high-intensity interval training classes. Healthy@HubSpot also includes wellness programming for employees, like nutrition classes and wellness sessions, for employees that want to stay both physically and mentally healthy.
  • HubSpot On The Town: HubSpot On The Town is an ongoing series of events that match small groups of HubSpotters for activities ranging from fitness classes to craft nights for good company and new adventures. Past events include rock climbing, cider tasting, volunteer projects, and even a trip to watch a boxing match whose proceeds are donated towards cancer research.
  • Mystery Lunches & Dinners: As the company has grown larger and larger, it can be harder to meet new people. A great way around this is the Mystery Dinner (and more recently, the Mystery Lunch), which has become a staple of the HubSpot culture. Groups of HubSpotters sign up for a dinner, and are randomly assigned around 10 coworkers to eat with, including one member of the management team. You don't know who you're going with or where you're dining until about 5 hours beforehand, when the culture team sends out the agenda.
  • Tuition Reimbursement: HubSpotters are offered up to $5,000 each year in tuition reimbursement, and are welcome to take any class that will help them advance in their career, whether that be Marketing, Public Speaking, Finance, Improv Comedy or anything else that helps employees grow in their professional life.
  • Unlimited Vacation: To attract and keep top talent today, we have built a modern workplace where our employees can spend less time worrying about their work/life balance, and more time thinking about how they can drive results. Unlimited vacation means employees have flexibility between the hours of 9 and 5 and don’t have to wait for a calendar holiday to relax.

One of the oldest and most cherished traditions is Waffle Wednesday. As you might guess from the name, each Wednesday, employees are welcome to make their own waffles in one of HubSpot's kitchens. Yes, there is nutella, fruit, whipped cream, and other toppings.

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. For more info, visit our careers page at
