Overview

HubSpot’s Payments Product Group is looking for a Staff Engineer to join our team. Having begun in 2021, the Payments initiative is among the newest and quickest-growing in our organization, with a goal to transform how our merchants get paid and bring that data directly into their CRM. Our current offering is available to US-based customers and took us a big step toward that goal, but we are now in the process of expanding upon it to include tools such as advanced billing functionality, buyer-facing subscription management, location-aware taxation and international expansion, all of which will tie into HubSpot’s powerful CRM.

In this role you’ll be hands-on, writing critical-path code and contributing to the design and architecture of our systems. You’ll also help to define and drive our teams toward the larger product vision. In time you’ll work across multiple teams, doing everything from delivering proof-of-concept projects to diving in when things go wrong and helping to resolve challenging production support concerns. As you become increasingly familiar with our products and vision, you’ll become a subject matter expert on payment processors and their associated rules and regulations.

We are looking for individuals who:

  • Have a long track record (typically 10+ years) of experience delivering high-value, high-impact, cross-team projects. Staff and Principal Engineers are 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.
  • Proven ability to solve complicated technical problems and analyze trade-offs with empathy for the developers.
  • Have some familiarity with systems for payment processing. While this is not a strict requirement, it would be advantageous for any individual getting up to speed in this role.
