Remote - USA

The CRM product group powers the core experience of HubSpot’s CRM platform, helping over 100,000 businesses Grow Better™ and impacting the careers of almost 1 million CRM users a week. We aim to build fast and reliable products that our customers love to use, and to support administrators with the tools they need for a successful CRM implementation. Unlike other enterprise CRM implementations, we start from a foundation of high customer love and satisfaction.

As we move upmarket to help businesses scale, we are bringing deeper configuration, customization, and extensibility to the CRM. If we can deliver this customization in a no-code/low-code way, while maintaining our world-class ease of use, we know we will help our customers be successful, and in turn HubSpot will be successful.

CRM engineering teams work at the highest level of scale within HubSpot, and do so with a strong culture of automated testing, and Continuous Deployment. We value a community-driven approach to learning, sharing, and teaching each other, so that we can all grow as individuals.

The HubSpot CRM is an ambitious and complex web-app built with ES6 Javascript, Typescript, React, and GraphQL using Apollo. We have a strong culture of automated testing and Continuous Deployment, leveraging the tools built by our world class Platform-as-a-Service and Frontend-as-a-Service teams.

Key Expectations for Technical Lead IIs:

  • A Tech Lead II is a player-coach responsible for leading a small team.
  • They are recognized as high-performing engineers and think of themselves as makers and builders first.
  • They collaborate with Product, Design, and other Tech Leads in their family to define and share relevant, compelling, and challenging goals for their team.
  • They work across teams with other TLs to resolve cross-team issues.
  • They proactively take ownership of their team’s on-call health and product reliability and quality.
  • They have an interest and opinion in the direction of the product. They do not defer this over to the PM or PD or others. Instead, they are an active member of the team’s leadership triad, co-setting the direction for the team.
  • They proactively look to grow the members of their team to enable them to take on harder and harder tasks.
  • They are actively cultivating Software Engineers into Sr. Software Engineers and Sr. Software Engineers into future TLs and Staff Engineers, etc.
  • They are evaluating the performance of their team members and providing them with the necessary coaching, guidance and learning opportunities to help them grow in their careers.

We’re looking for individuals who:

  • Are a strong senior engineer with some experience leading small teams.
  • Have a passion for writing code and reading code, up to 75% of their time.
  • Foster an environment that encourages autonomy and psychological safety.
  • Understand the value of building a diverse team, and are champions and upstanders for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging initiatives.
  • Enjoy mentoring and coaching other team members in a psychologically safe way, while also being open to learning from them as well.
  • Are primarily happy spending their time writing JavaScript and TypeScript. We have a fantastic implementation of our Canvas design system, so engineers spend very little time writing custom CSS.
