At HubSpot, we are in the midst of a major transformation. Our product has evolved from a single app to a CRM platform and we are poised to be the #1 CRM for scaling companies.

You’ll be a primary business partner to our FinTech (Financial Technology) engineering group – HubSpot’s team of engineers, product managers, and business system analysts that build and support the systems that power seamless transactions between our customers and HubSpot. Sitting at the intersection of product development and Finance, you’ll leverage a diverse knowledge base of business systems, financial operations, customer billing, and compliance to help teams understand how changes in upstream systems impact our financial reporting and how we bill our customers.

  • Be the in-house “systems expert” within the Finance team, working with cross- functional teams to build scalable and sustainable solutions
  • Drive cross-functional collaboration across the Finance and Fintech Teams, ensuring transparency, alignment, and clear communication of core requirements
  • Act as an translator between Fintech and Finance – conveying technical solutions and nuances as non-technical business and financial concepts
  • Work with our Business Intelligence team to design and implement an end-to-end business controls framework ensuring complete and accurate reporting
  • Be part of a growing Financial Operations team and help us define Finance enablement best practices to equip HubSpot to scale for the future

We’re looking for people that have: 

  • Bachelor’s degree (required)
  • 3+ years relevant work experience, which may include one or more of the following:
    • Performing risk assessments and evaluating the impact of system changes on downstream processes, for example in a financial systems auditor capacity

    • Engaging with Engineering teams on product development, with an understanding of software development (SDLC) processes and agile methodology
  • Resourceful and able to learn various systems quickly or ask key questions to build understanding
  • Strong interpersonal skills; ability to work cross functionally and influence/inspire change across functions
  • Ability to summarize and articulate complex technical information for a non-technical audience
  • Continuous improvement mentality; ability to suggest and drive implementation of enhancements
