HubSpot is growing at a hyper-scale pace as we help millions of organizations grow better. Today, nearly 128,000 customers across more than 120 countries use HubSpot’s powerful and easy-to-use tools and integrations to attract, engage, and delight customers (up 34% from 2020). In fact, the HubSpot ecosystem is forecast to grow even faster than HubSpot as its revenue grows from $4.8 billion in 2020 to $12.5 billion in 2024. And like many companies, we need to add a significant amount of new talent to our team to fuel the future of our company.
How will HubSpot be able to achieve this massive growth?
The secret is in the HubSpot Flywheel - a model adapted by HubSpot to explain the momentum you gain when you align your entire organization around delivering a remarkable customer experience.
Not only do we build products for our customers to gain momentum when aligning their organizations on a remarkable customer experience, we also apply the Flywheel model to our own business too. It's so important, we have a whole Product team dedicated to how we apply the Flywheel model to our own business: the Flywheel Product Team.
What does the Flywheel Product Team do?
The Flywheel Product Team is responsible for spinning HubSpot’s enterprise Flywheel faster - HubSpot can’t afford to lose speed as we scale. We need to stay big and fast to reach our goals. The success of our team is defined by creating systems that enable HubSpot’s hyper-scale and break linear revenue growth. Our team builds for HubSpot’s front line reps, ops teams and partners, so they can perform their best work and continue to generate continuous value for customers at scale.
We’re at the epicenter of HubSpot’s growth, and support teams through bespoke Flywheel GTM systems and utilizing the full HubSpot product suite. The Flywheel Product Team also empowers our Ops teams to self-serve their evolving GTM strategies in systems that are connected and robust, not brittle.

They are a Slack, Zoom or an email away - and if you’re in the office, you can grab lunch or a coffee.

HubSpot Reps, Ops and Partners are always eager to provide the feedback you need to build best-in-class solutions.

A big bet for the Flywheel Product Team in 2022 is to build a best-in-class front office solution that can solve the needs of upmarket customers. Realizing this goal for our customers will require increased customization and extensibility of our CRM, something that the Flywheel Product Team will become the first “customer” of as we run more of the HubSpot organization on HubSpot products. Armed with this expertise, you’ll help to scale core HubSpot products with features that enhance the upmarket customer experience.
- You’ll prioritize both service design and product design

For example, you may conduct an exercise to map the HubSpot customer journey through the lens of the reps they work with everyday before designing the ideal current state and solving problems in product and process.
