It’s no secret that Berlin is one of the fastest-growing tech cities in Europe. In fact, a startup is founded every 20 minutes in the German capital. A survey HubSpot commissioned in 2016 found similar results with the vast majority of respondents identifying the city as a burgeoning hub for startups and tech companies. To solidify our support in the DACH market, HubSpot opened its Berlin office in 2017, initially committing to creating 75 jobs to meet the rising demand for HubSpot’s software solutions.
HubSpot today announced we’re not done growing in Berlin. To support the expanding sales and services teams focused on growing relationships with customers and agency partners across Europe, HubSpot Berlin has moved to a larger office space and recommits to job growth by planning to hire 150 new employees by the end of 2021. In addition, we’ve localized the full Culture Code, which has over 4 million views on SlideShare, in German.
“When we opened our office in Berlin two years ago, we knew there was demand for the inbound methodology, but the rapid growth of HubSpot’s presence and footprint has exceeded our expectations,” said Jeetu Mahtani, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of International Operations at HubSpot. “Our larger office space will enable us to continue growing with amazing talent, which in turn enables us to support our growing customer base and partner ecosystem across the DACH region.”
HubSpot’s new office space is located in Easton House at Koppenstrasse 93 and features some key characteristics that have become HubSpot staples across all of our global offices. These include collaboration spaces and common areas for flexible working, three contemporary kitchens, and a welcoming event space where HubSpot will host a variety of community events, such as HubTalks, bringing expert leaders in to chat with employees.
Introducing the Culture Code in German
In 2018, we were honored to be named a Best Place to Work in Germany by Glassdoor thanks to employee feedback, which reflects our commitment to creating an environment where employees love coming into work every day. Our Culture Code states that our culture is built on the belief that the way people work and live has changed and is rooted in our core values of transparency, flexibility and autonomy. By localizing the full Culture Code in German, to provide local employees, candidates, and customers an inside look into what we believe and how we work. We hope it will help companies across Europe grow better and grow smarter.
“Part of HubSpot’s success in Berlin has stemmed from building a strong local company culture by adapting the Culture Code into our day to day work,” said DACH Director of Sales, Gregor Hufenreuter. “One slide in our Culture Code states that we obsess about culture. And, we do. We’re passionate about creating a modern workplace, radical transparency, using good judgement, and providing benefits such as flexible work hours, unlimited vacation and tuition reimbursement so that employees can build their work around their lives, not the other way around.”
