All customer requests flow through this critical teams services -- this is a high-impact software infrastructure team within HubSpots Platform as a Service group.

As a Staff Engineer on the Edge team at HubSpot, you’ll do many things— and you likely already have experience doing some of them in the past. We are looking for people who:

  • Have a long track record of experience delivering high-value, high-impact, cross-team projects. Staff Engineers are one of the most senior individual contributors at HubSpot; they are leaders that continually strive to raise the bar for the engineering organization as a whole, and are expected to help drive the product vision forward via strong collaboration skills and hands-on coding.
  • Embody our engineering team values while delivering world-class software infrastructure. 
  • Have a thirst for technical challenges implemented within secure, compliant systems. We leverage technologies such as Java, HBase, Vitess, Kafka, GraphQL and Dropwizard. We’re not necessarily looking for someone who is an expert in a specific technology, but someone who is well-versed in engineering principles and eager to leverage them when running toward the problems that we face. 
  • Wish to stay hands-on in all technical aspects while leading by example through collaborations with cross-functional and internal stakeholders.
  • Provide strategic direction for major projects while mentoring and informing engineers in their areas of expertise.
  • Exhibit an enthusiasm for building reliable, scalable systems.
