Marketing software developer HubSpot has announced plans to create 100 new jobs in Singapore by 2021, growing the headcount to 250 in total. The new roles will span nearly all aspects of HubSpot’s business including sales, marketing, services, and support.
To cater for this growth, HubSpot has opened an additional office space at Mapletree Anson in the Central Business District, where its APAC headquarters is currently located.
HubSpot first came to Asia Pacific in 2014, when it opened its Sydney office, while the Singapore office opened in 2016. Presently, the Singapore team is led by Shahid Nizami, who was appointed as managing director for APAC earlier this month, a newly created role for HubSpot in the region.
He commented: “There is a huge opportunity for us to help millions of SMBs adopt the right marketing, sales, and customer service strategies that will enable them to not only grow fast, but to grow better through HubSpot’s education, software and support.
“The team in APAC has achieved so much in the past three years, and yet we are still only scratching the surface. I’m incredibly excited about the growth that is yet to come, and to make HubSpot one of the best and most desired places to work in the region.”
This new office space includes features such as: fitness space, meditation room, 60-person classroom style training and event space, and culture room with a built-in fireplace.
It also hosts a number of global HubSpot office staples such as the desks being electronically adjustable from sitting to standing, as well as several themed conference rooms and nomad desks to allow employees the freedom to work from a space they are most productive in.
The decor features a mural of major cities across Asia Pacific, as well as large graphic wall prints of Singapore’s famous landmark, The Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay.
The announcement marks the return of Jeetu Mahtani to HubSpot’s HQ in Boston. He has been leading the on-ground Singapore team for the past three years, as SVP and MD of international operations.
He said: “I’m incredibly proud of what HubSpot has built in Singapore so far, and the impact we’ve had on the growth of small and medium-sized businesses across Asia Pacific.”
