How Twitter and HubSpot Are Scaling Build Systems

Tech Talk at Night is a chance for engineers to get together and talk about the problems they're solving across the stack. We hosted the second installment of the event earlier this week, featuring talks from Twitter and our own development team about growing pains that come up with build tools as teams and systems scale. 


Unlimited Vacation: HubSpot Product and Engineering Edition

In the early days of HubSpot, a developer had worked nights and weekends to get a critical project to the finish line. Shortly after, he asked CEO Brian Halligan (who ran the product organization at the time) to sign off on his requested vacation days. It hit Brian how backward it was that this employee had the autonomy to drive a serious company-wide initiative but needed permission to take time off. Today, employees are evaluated on their results, not the number of days they're in the office, thanks to a "policy" called unlimited vacation. 


Redesigning a Website to Attract Top Product Talent


A few months ago, we really started to think about how we can scale our product team long-term. Engineers, designers, and product managers are hard to hire, especially ones that will raise the average of an already world-class team. A big part of attracting that level of talent is being intentional about how we tell the story of product and engineering at HubSpot. Today, after redesigning our homepage and jobs pages, we launched a new and improved product.hubspot.com. Here’s how it happened and what the redesign is doing for our inbound recruiting framework.


Growing Your Design Career: 4 Highlights from Tuesdays by Design

When Sean Duhame was asked last night how the role of designer has changed, he explained that designers today have more responsibility than they did ten years ago. “The world now understands that design is the linchpin for success,” he said. Not surprisingly, designers are constantly pushing themselves to get better at their craft and sometimes, that means stepping away from the screen to learn from design leaders. 


Meet the Movers and Makers: Adam Darowski, Senior Design Engineer 

Name: Adam Darowski

Role: Senior design engineer (product designer on the social media team)

What song is stuck in your head these days? Music is a big deal to me and it constantly fuels my work. The best album I’ve heard so far in 2015 comes from a new band from Ipswich, UK called War Waves. I recommend the track “Trophy Life”.

How do you like your coffee? Hand me the cone of shame because I’m a tea drinker. Nothing fancy—black tea, no cream or sugar, steeped until the cup is empty. Rinse and repeat all the live long day.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? Hm, how about a couple things? First, I recently started recording music after taking a decade off. Second, I created an alternate baseball Hall of Fame populated by a mathematical formula (because I’m a baseball history and stat nerd.)


Quick Recap: The First-Ever Tech Talk at Night

Last night, we hosted the first Tech Talk at Night here at HubSpot HQ.  Over 100 product and engineering gurus came out to hear from our very own Ben Anderson on React.js and Wayfair's Andrew Rota and Matt DeGennaro on Tungsten.js. Two hours, three dynamic speakers, and dozens of carefully-crafted Pimm's cups later, we all had learned a few new names and front-end tips.
