First Week at HubSpot – Listening

I started a new job this week at HubSpot as Tech Lead within the Creative/Web Dev team. I’m still in shock and honored that I got hired to work for a company that is consistently ranked as one the best places to work (2020 and 2021).

My main focus for the week was to listen and soak in as much information as possible. In fact, this will be my primary goal for the entire first month since I will need to have a strong understanding how the company operates before I am able to make any meaningful contributions.

The week was primarily spent getting to know the company and the platform. Lot of information was provided and it was impossible to know everything shared by the end of the week since the HubSpot platform has so many tiers and features. But I have a good high level understanding and know where to look for answers now.

Biggest take away for the first week was that I will have many professional development opportunities to advance in my career. I will even have opportunities outside of my job duties and responsibilities.

Next week’s goal will be to continue listening and soaking in information. Orientation next week will be more department focused and more relevant to my job responsibilities so I am very much looking forward to it!
