After opening a second office, HubSpot wants to expand remote working options

After announcing 450 new jobs recently, HubSpot is preparing to ‘lean in’ on remote working. The US marketing software company announced the recruitment drive, which will be carried out over the space of the next three years, at its new Dublin office that complements its existing space in the Docklands. The roles will be in engineering, marketing, sales and customer support and based in the two offices or elsewhere remotely in the country. Of the company’s 3,300 workforce globally, around 300 work remotely, Christian Kinnear, managing director for Europe, Middle East and Africa, told Fora. “In EMEA, we are behind on that. We haven’t leaned into remote as much yet but (last week’s) announcement was a step along that path. We’re taking a committed step to moving into remote strategy as well as office-based.” While remote working has been a facet of HubSpot for some time, its announcement happens to come around the same time that companies are evaluating their remote work capabilities in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
