Press for HubSpot

If you’re a software engineer, walk down Kendall Square’s Main Street at your peril: there’s a target on your back. The demand for tech talent has turned Boston into the wild East.

I've received a number of questions and comments lately regarding the unique company culture at HubSpot, mainly because of our recent recognition by the Boston Business Journal as the number one best place to work (just ahead of Google!) and by the Boston Globe as thenumber four top workplace. The recognition resulting from these awards has tended to emphasize HubSpot's perks like free beer and no vacation policy, but that's only a snapshot.

Big news this month at HubSpot is the integration between HubSpot's Inbound Marketing platform and Shopify's e-commerce platform.  Haven't heard of Shopify? Shopify is a fully hosted, super-easy to use, elegant and affordable online retail platform aimed at taking the challenge out of setting up and managing e-commerce storefronts.

This project for HubSpot by architecture3s is a transformation of a 38,000 square foot mill building space in Cambridge into a corporate headquarters.  HubSpot is an inbound marketing company that provides marketing software and advice to businesses allowing them to be found on the internet and grow their business. In this case, Hubspot was moving from their bare bones start-up space, to their new office space located in a 38,000 square foot series of interconnected mill buildings on First Street in Cambridge.
