Mission: HubSpot, Inc. is on a mission to make the world more inbound by transforming how companies market and sell to help them grow.
I have been working at HubSpot full-time (More than 3 years)
Completely results driven promotion structure - if you perform you get promoted period. Typically use to the politics behind in-line promotions from other sales organizations so it's a breath of fresh air to know if you bring value to the company, are a high-producer and a good person to work with you will be rewarded.
I really love the people I work with.. we higher on culture really well and i've seen fantastic sales people not hired as they weren't seen as culture fits.
Unlimited leave and solid balance on work/life balance
Very flat structure - exposure and access to Execs is very easy
One of the most transparent organizations ever, the humility of the C-suite, the regular candid posts and communications on both wins/losses is just amazing considering the size of our org
Top class inside-sales training, you spend a lot of time overseas in product training and have regular training after you come back as well. Once you return you have a senior sales rep to shadow and you are also put on a lengthy "ramp" to get you ready for a full quota.
Regular sales competitions with equity, cash, travel prizes
The product/vision is something you can really get behind if you are passionate about helping businesses grow
HubSpot has traditionally hired a certain type that really want to over-perform - but this has resulted at times in a sales org that doesn't take as many breaks as necessary. We have unlimited leave (completely paid for) but not as many people feel OK to take it .
Very sales driven org and have seen examples of a top sales rep get away with a lot more discrepancies then typically would be allowed. Really reminded me that results can matter more then doing the right thing but this was the only time I have been disappointed by management.
You have to be either really talented or work very hard when you first begin to do well- a lot of our sales managers are either new or promoted from top senior reps which means they can't teach to sell the solution yet or they are only just learning how to manage people. Expect to pick things up quickly or rely on senior sales reps.
Advice to Management
Keep the heart of HubSpot Sydney there
People want to be inspired or aspire to be like their execs, as such management needs to always be held to a greater standard and contribute to growth of the employees. You want to look at management and see examples of people to aspire and look up too.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HubSpot (Sydney) in December 2016.
Probably the first time in my career i was strung along like a fool.. Went through all the interviews, even went through the reference check only to be led along with months of lies about how HubSpot have internal issues they need to sort out, and that the issue is not with "me". I was strung along for many months, and if i was not the right candidate, they should have cut me from the process sooner, rather than have wasted not just my time but the the time of my references as well. These people spent a considerable amount of time on the phone validating my credentials and it put me in a difficult position to have to ask for their time again when searching for a new role. HubSpot seems like a great company, but i'd suggest not lying to people during the interview process and just be upfront with them. Isn't that HubSpot's whole motto? Being Transparent?
