Where’s the best place to work in Boston? You guessed it – HubSpot!

"We really strive to build a unique and innovative culture at HubSpot, and our employees are a huge part of that," said HubSpot Founder and CEO Brian Halligan, who accepted the award on HubSpot’s behalf. "One of the greatest things about working at HubSpot is the ability to help businesses improve and transform their marketing. Empowering our customers to be successful is a major factor in our employees' happiness, and without our customers, we wouldn't be here today. It’s hard to believe it’s only been 4 years since HubSpot was founded, and this recognition is truly an honor for us.”
HubSpot employees (AKA HubSpotters), now numbering over 160, are intelligent, hard-working, and team-oriented. They love HubSpot for its success, supportive leaders and co-workers, innovative and analytical culture and casual work environment, which boasts an office game room (foosball, ping pong or a beer, anyone?). HubSpotters also enjoy no vacation policy, take pride in company-wide competitions such as Iron Chef HubSpot, and take part in HubSpot traditions such as a weekly internet marketing video podcast, HubSpot TV.
"It's an incredibly transparent work environment, and it's very laid back." said HubSpot Product Owner Karen Rubin, "There is a lot of joking and teasing that goes on in the office, making it a very comfortable place. Also, everyone here is brilliant, which makes it a lot of fun."
So, what do HubSpotters like best about working at HubSpot? Other HubSpotters! In a recent employee survey conducted, HubSpot employees cited that their fellow co-workers were the key factors that made working at HubSpot so enjoyable.
