(Boston, MA) May 20, 2013 – This week, HubSpot, the inbound marketing software company, was named one of the “Best Places to Work for Recent Grads” by Experience, a ConnectEDU company. Experience looks for 25 companies that demonstrate "excellence in recruiting, hiring and retaining young professionals" for their Best Places to Work list. HubSpot was chosen from over 300 companies for its commitment to fostering a transparent, motivating, inspiring company culture designed to attract, delight, and retain young people.
Of the honor, HubSpot CMO MIke Volpe said, "HubSpot is proud to be recognized as a remarkable place for young people to work. In HubSpot's Culture Code, Dharmesh talks about hiring to elevate, not to delegate, and that's a mission we take seriously. Our culture is fast-paced and data-driven, and we value autonomy and transparency, making it an ideal location for recent graduates to contribute in significant ways to the success of a fast-growing company."
HubSpot is recognized for its commitment to a unique and distinctive company culture. Specifically, the company releases its financial results annually, even though HubSpot is still private, in line with being radically transparent. HubSpot also maintains an annual tuition reimbursement program, hosts bimonthly business talks to expose employees to ideas from leading innovators both within and outside the company, and agrees to pay for any employee at any level to take someone they admire to lunch or dinner on HubSpot. Moreover, HubSpot offers a Lunch Roulette program that matches rookie and veteran employees up for a complimentary lunch meeting on the company, an unlimited vacation policy, mentoring programs, and peer recognition bonus programs.
The winners were selected by comparing employer survey responses to research what recent grads prioritize when selecting a place to work. The selection criteria for 2013 included career advancement opportunities, culture, benefits (such as salary and perks), and work/life balance. The survey ran from February 2013 through April 2013, garnering responses from over 300 employers from across the country.
