Launch Site

How it all began

When I first started thinking about starting my own service based startup does design and development projects, I had no idea it would fuel my passion in entrepenurship as much as it did. After several years running Epicio as a Co-founder and design Director, I set my sights on moving to Boston to find an opportunity at a product company. Through a funny set of circumstances while visiting Cambridge, MA, and going through interviews at other places like the Museum of Science, I ended up getting connected with HubSpot.

After I got introduced and started chatting with their team, I learned that had ideas to start a new hybrid interactive design team. I met with many people over two days and I was incredibly forunate to have offer extended to me, and I accepted to join the booming and bustling HubSpot rocketship.

Laura Marelic
Designer (Co-op)

Laura was the first co-op to join my design team at HubSpot. She was a passionate young designer, who always chased her curiosity and made sure to ask questions and explore the details of her projects to ensure what she delivered was on point. I look forward to seeing her become a fantastic designer in the Boston area, and i'll never forget her passion for Orca whales and vegan eats.

Gabriela Lanza
Front-end Dev (Co-op)

Gabriela was an amazing intern who hailed from Wellesley College, and joined the team to work on design & front-end development. When she first joined, I knew she was already incredibly smart but I didn't realize how good she already was. Even early on Gabriela consistently exceeded expectations and always produced high quality work for any project she was given. I look forward to seeing her grow into a brilliant designer and front-end developer, and i'll never forget her love of foxes!

Stephanie Lee
Designer (Co-op)

Stephanie also came to us through the Northeastern Co-op program. She came in and delivered great quality design work for the projects that she worked on at HubSpot. She would always reach out for help and ask the right questions, and I have no doubt she will grow into a fantastic designer in the Boston area!

Ben Lodge
Front-end Dev

When I first met Ben, it was easy to see how smart he was and how incredibly passionate he was about becoming a strong developer (and eventually engineer). Working with and managing Ben was always a pleasure, he was always able to manage a task of any size and would go above and beyond to deliver top notch code. Any team would highly benefit have his great attitude and strong engineering skill sets.

Matt Lawson
Designer

I'll never forget the first time I tripped over Matt's (aka "Red Beard") work on Dribbble, it was beautiful. After a few conversations & interviews, I was incredibly happy to learn he accepted an offer to join my team. I knew the quality of our teams work at HubSpot was going to skyrocket, and it did. Matt is one of the most creative art directors i've ever met, his attention to detail when doing ilustrations, icons, or anything else is unparalleled. He was a pleasure to manage and brought his "A" game everyday.
