Tech Culture: Build a Company for Generations

HubSpot has never been shy about wanting to build a company that lasts beyond our founders, and some of their earliest first ideas that have been woven into our fabric are building a company for the next generation of employees - a modern family as they may say. To enable that, technology and culture hacks are at the core to allow HubSpotters to meet, engage, and thrive and we have begged, borrowed, and improved ideas from companies we admire to build an environment we love to work in.
