HubSpot co-founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah met in Boston and when they decided to start HubSpot together, there was never a doubt that HubSpot would always call the city “home.” In the nine years since HubSpot began, Boston has been a huge part of the company’s success story and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Simply put, HubSpot loves Boston.

For this reason, HubSpot is honored to announce that it has been named #1 on The Boston Globe’s 2015 Top Places to Work list. The list is an aggregation of Massachusetts’ best employers, ranked using feedback from anonymous employee surveys.

“HubSpot is very fortunate to have its roots in this tight-knit and entrepreneurial community,” said HubSpot co-founder and CTO Dharmesh Shah. “We owe so much of what we’ve accomplished to both the community for accepting us, and to our employees for creating a remarkable workplace.”

Thanks to the hard work of its employees, HubSpot is also pleased to announce that it has been named a Deloitte Technology Fast 500 company. The list, which uses revenue growth as a key indicator, identified HubSpot as one of the country’s fastest growing technology companies from 2011 to 2014.  

The last few years have seen tremendous growth for HubSpot, with the third quarter of 2015 being no exception: in addition to opening its third international office in Singapore, HubSpot closed out the quarter with $47.7M in revenue, a 57% increase over the third quarter of 2014 according to its Q3 earnings report. HubSpot also raised its full-year 2015 revenue expectation to between $178.5M to $179.5M.  

“We’re so lucky to have such an amazing and dedicated team of HubSpotters,” said COO JD Sherman. “Their shared vision for growth and customer service has built HubSpot into the company it is today, and we owe our successes to them.”

The eighth annual Boston Globe Top Places to Work list, of which HubSpot was also a member in 2013 and 2014, examines seven key factors of employee happiness: direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. These metrics are collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent employee engagement and retention research company, and involved nearly 77,000 employees from 357 businesses.

Deloitte calculates rankings for its Technology Fast 500 companies based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth from 2011 to 2014. The list ultimately includes the fastest-growing companies from the fields of technology, media, energy, communications, and life sciences.
