Overview

About the Team

The HubSpot Framework Data Group is responsible for building a world-class customer data platform that allows customers to gain deep insight into their business data, and propel other HubSpot product teams forward. We have a highly visible impact on the continued growth for the entire HubSpot stack. The Framework Data systems are considered part of HubSpot’s primary colors and core building blocks for our entire platform.

The work we do in the Framework Data Group is integral to HubSpot’s success. When we make our systems more reliable, HubSpot is more stable. When we make our systems more performant, we make HubSpot faster. On top of that, any features we build unlocks functionality across the entire platform. Our work creates a consistent data experience for customers through the entire HubSpot product.

HubSpot has thousands of microservices, primarily written in Java 13, and work with highly distributed systems that leverage and push on open source technologies such as HBase, Hadoop, Kafka, Spark, Memcached, MySQL, and ElasticSearch. These systems let our users store, automate, report on, and interact with their customers at scale. We deal with problems of scale on a daily basis with PB storage and millions of transactions per second.

About the Role

We are looking for a hands-on engineering leader who is excited about solving complex architectural & system challenges and partnering with product on the vision and is passionate and experienced using HBase. This role is ideally fit for a hands on lead that will manage several of the engineering teams on one of these product teams and provide higher-level leadership to the other team.

The Engineering Lead role is perfect for senior engineers who want a larger leadership role while staying close to the code (at least 50% of the time).

Key Expectations for Engineering Leads:

  • Engineering Leads are actively involved as a player-coach in building software and making products to solve customer problems. They are curious and involved in the technology as well as the people on their teams.
  • Have led an engineering team in a management capacity
  • Wish to stay hands on in all technical aspects while leading a team of engineers and collaborating cross functionally with internal stakeholders
  • Have a history of developing solutions to problems that have had an outsized impact on the organization’s business goals
  • They have a strong technical vision for how to implement the product vision. This can include working with teams they oversee and external teams to ensure that we are solving problems the best way for customers.
  • Regularly mentor and teach engineers in their areas of expertise
  • Have a thirst for technical challenges with big data and distributed systems, we process billions of events per day with multiple petabyte datastores
  • Work autonomously, lead transparently, and prioritize product and people over strict processes.

We’re looking for:

  • A bias for fixing problems with technology rather than process
  • Passion for building reliable and scalable systems
  • Someone who never accepts the status quo; we need engineers who can see beyond what we have, and towards what we can build, while maintaining an understanding about how to get there
  • An understanding of building reliable systems in a complex architectural space
  • Proven ability to solve complicated technical problems and analyze tradeoffs with empathy for the developers
