The Connected Email team is on a mission to support all one-to-one email use cases within HubSpot. Our team is responsible for sending and synchronizing hundreds of millions of emails per month across 5 different providers. We are also responsible for constructing business-level events from each email received/sent/replied, email threading concerns, and other complex business logic tied to email.

Email is critical to many of our customers’ daily business operations, and given the complexity and natural “edge-case” nature of email, this poses an especially tough challenge to scale our infrastructure in a way that ensures reliability and correctness. It becomes especially difficult given the scale of the number of customers currently relying on our platform - we are setting new records every week (email volume has doubled in the past year alone) and there is no sign of things slowing down.

Over the next year, we plan to split our entire infrastructure into an EU and US region, improve the reliability across our email providers, build tools and infrastructure to be able to minimize and eliminate reported bugs, and potentially rewrite a large portion of our infrastructure ). If any of this work sounds interesting to you, if you are the kind of person who runs towards challenging problems, and if you want to work on a team where no idea is too wild and no part of the system is off limits, then let’s talk!

In this role you’ll get to:

  • Work on an email sending and synchronization platform used by lots of developers inside and outside of HubSpot
  • Analyze and improve the reliability of distributed systems
  • Solve for some of our customers' most complex and business-critical processes
  • Work on problems at a very large scale

We are looking for people who:

  • Write lots of microservices, primarily with Java 11 (our APIs are RESTful and use the minimal Dropwizard framework)
  • Want to grow their career in a fast paced, low bureaucracy environment
  • Like the idea of working on small, customer-driven development teams of 3-5 engineers
  • Dive into concepts they may be unfamiliar with
  • Are passionate about delivering exceptional experiences to our customers
  • Take ownership, work collaboratively, and figure things out
  • Analyze trade-offs with empathy, and build creative solutions

If you’re an engineer of any level or experience, and if this resonates with you, let’s talk. We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates, so please don’t hesitate to apply — we’d love to hear from you.

In addition to our ParentSpot group, we offer 16 weeks paid leave to primary caregivers and 6 weeks to secondary caregivers, as well as egg-freezing benefits to help give women more support.

Remote friendly

You don’t need to be in an office or at a desk to have an impact anymore. Employees can work fully remote from select countries, and work from home (or a coffee shop) when they need to.

Generous vacation

At HubSpot, you decide when and for how long to take time off. Vacation can be used however you want; for tropical trips or flexible day-to-days. We also have Vacation Quota Relief (VQR) to make sure it’s truly unlimited for all.

Professional development

How can we help managers build and grow great teams? HubSpot’s leadership development team provides trainings, ThinkSpaces, recognition programs, and resources for new and tenured managers alike.

Five-year sabbatical

After five years with HubSpot, you get a four-week paid sabbatical, with the equivalent of $5K US bonus. Some employees take vacations with their families, while others learn how to play the guitar, or enjoy month-long honeymoons.

Employee stock purchase

Employees can buy HubSpot stock at a discount from the share price at purchase. By contributing between 1%-15% of their base pay for a set period of time, the funds are used to buy HubSpot stock at a 15% discount.

Tuition reimbursement

HubSpotters get the equivalent of $5k US/year to spend on education. They’ve taken semester-long classes, weekend workshops, and online courses on everything from finance to design.

Fun stuff

When you work with amazing people, it’s not hard to have a good time. From scavenger hunts and Mystery Dinners, to charity outings and museum visits, there’s no shortage of fun stuff to get involved in at HubSpot.
