Staff Software Engineer, Backend, Help Desk Product Group 

We’re seeking a Staff level Software Engineer to join a team working on a high-impact mission within the Help Desk Product Group at HubSpot. Help Desk is dedicated to providing a top of the line experience for customer service agents. We are working to provide better automation, extensions, and tools to allow agents to help their customers and to allow admins to better support their teams. Agents will also be able to better work with others across their team by taking advantage of HubSpot’s powerful CRM.

This engineer will join the Help Desk Admin BE Team. This team owns the core configuration of our system and we are looking to focus on our data model and insights to give admins better information to make choices about their system, agents, and customers.

As a Staff Engineer on a Help Desk team at HubSpot, you’ll do many things— and you likely already have experience doing some of them in the past. We are looking for people who:

  • Have a long track record of experience delivering high-value, high-impact, cross-team projects. Staff Engineers are one of the most senior individual contributors at HubSpot; they are leaders that continually strive to raise the bar for the engineering organization as a whole, and are expected to help drive the product vision forward via strong collaboration skills and hands-on coding.
  • Have a thirst for technical challenges implemented within secure, compliant systems. We leverage technologies such as Java, HBase, Vitess, Kafka, GraphQL and Dropwizard. We’re not necessarily looking for someone who is an expert in a specific technology, but someone who is well-versed in engineering principles and eager to leverage them when running toward the problems that we face.
  • Wish to stay hands-on in all technical aspects while leading by example through collaborations with cross-functional and internal stakeholders.
  • Have a history of developing solutions to problems that have had an outsized impact on a large organization’s business goals.
  • Provide strategic direction for major projects.
  • Regularly mentor and teach engineers in their areas of expertise.
  • Demonstrate pragmatic decision-making and problem-solving abilities.
  • Exhibit an enthusiasm for building reliable, scalable systems.
  • Can guide teams beyond the status quo; we need engineers who lead us beyond what we have, and towards what we can build, while building a shared notion of how to get there.
  • Some familiarity with customer service solutions is not a requirement, but would be advantageous for any individual getting up to speed in this role.
  • Embodies our engineering team values

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates, so please don’t hesitate to apply — we’d love to hear from you.
