Job Description:

We are searching for a thoughtful and passionate product designer with the ability to translate business needs into customer experiences to join an impactful group that builds experiences for HubSpot's customers to track and meet their goals.

Your work will have a major impact on how our customers prove their value to themselves and iterate towards success. This team represents a new business initiative at HubSpot that will require collaboration with design and product leaders throughout the company. We value designers who can not only deliver great experiences with their team, but also communicate vision, decisions and influence the broader product team. Your ability to design for a system, while solving for a specific problem will make you successful in this role. As part of our Reporting Product Group, you'll work directly with designers, product managers and engineers who are passionate about solving for the customer.

We are looking for people who:

  • Effectively make tradeoffs between system designs and point solutions
  • Love partnering with engineers, product managers, writers, and researchers to frame problems and iteratively ship solutions together
  • Fluently organize information and create data-supported design strategies to provide an intuitive, scalable user experience that can be seamlessly adopted by multiple stakeholder groups
  • Are strong at communicating direction and design value through writing, presentations, and visualizing solutions on a spectrum from abstract to concrete
  • Demonstrate facilitation skills and the ability to work with senior stakeholders in multiple groups to secure buy-in
  • Are deliberate and effective about over-communicating the major trade-offs between design concepts and influencing your partners along the way
  • Can partner with researchers (or lead yourself) on studies that impact strategy and problem framing with methods that go beyond usability testing and concept validation


Design at HubSpot is both grounded in experience design fundamentals and a deep belief that small autonomous teams are the best way to get excellent work in customer's hands.

  • We value solving for the customer above all else
  • We give each designer the responsibility and ownership to chart the course for their designs throughout the product and across teams. We don't do sign-offs and burdensome documentation.
  • We respect user research and content and work cooperatively with them while designing
  • We carefully lead and maintain a high-functioning, usability-centered design system and design language with our front-end teammates.
  • We're embedded on small teams with engineers and product managers in sane sustainable ratios

  • A deep understanding of how to improve the ease of use of complex software, object-orientated design, information architecture, interaction and visual design
