About the team

At HubSpot, the Frontend Platform group has crafted a shared foundation for our micro frontend architecture, making it easier for HubSpot's small, autonomous teams to work together seamlessly but also independently. The teams ensure that the over 200 frontend engineers at HubSpot can efficiently create consistent, reliable, and performant user experiences in our product while maintaining fast-paced iteration cycles, and shipping to production multiple times a day. The Frontend Platform group owns the tools, libraries, infrastructure, and practices for making our UI and the engineers that work on it exceptional.

We plan to continue to scale this group of 6 teams and more than 20 engineers because we think our infrastructure teams represent an unfair advantage for our product team and customers. We're looking for an engineering leader with the technical skills and product foresight to chart a long term vision and lead the Frontend platform group as it grows.

At HubSpot, engineering leaders play to their strengths, but are aligned with HubSpot's mission and show the leadership qualities that we've found to be most effective:

  • They build trust, respect, and empathy, and use that as a base to deliver radical candor.
  • They foster an inclusive team and sense of mission.
  • They have strong working relationships across the organization, from the tech leads and the individual contributors who report to them, to the product managers and designers their reports work with, to their peers & the executive team.
  • They understand our customer and business needs.
  • They understand how we build and why.
  • They represent our mission, culture, and commitment to DI&B to candidates.
  • They get team members and candidates excited to take on new challenges.

About the role

As an engineering leader at HubSpot, you'll do many things - many of which you likely already have experience executing. They are:

  • Leading teams building infrastructure that empowers Frontend development with technologies like webpack, React, Redux, Jest, Typescript, Babel, GraphQL, Apollo.
  • A passion for component libraries, I18n, usability, performance and the intersection of frontend development and user experience
  • Collaborating with other engineering leaders on all matters that impact the Engineering team, including resourcing and building technical/product vision.
  • Driving the team to build software that's useful, usable, delightful, and solves real customer pain.
  • Coaching and mentoring engineering teams, including code reviews, higher-level software design, and direct management.
  • Growing remarkable engineering teams hands-on and with recruiting
