    I worked at Hubba full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Atmosphere is warm and kind, like an old lady book club but with young people and guys around. Culture is people oriented and so it feels very nice.

    The mission is amazing. It may be hard for people outside of CPG/Retail to understand what Hubba does, but the vision is there and it is strong.

    Cons

    For a tech company, there is no sense that engineering excellence oozes from every pore. When people mention Google, Amazon, etc there is a sense the engineering is Solid. At Hubba, scrappy, hacky shortcuts are still very much apparent and it's clear there is a ways to go before Excellence is established as part of the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Hubba's been without proper senior tech leadership for too long.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hubba (Toronto, ON) in November-2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a callback from their HR in a week. Phone screening went well and the HR rep was pleasant and great to talk with. Got an email the next day for a technical test/challenge (i think 4 days to work on it).

    After submission, took till end of the week for them review and call me back for an interview.

    Don't think they had a front desk, but everyone walking by was super friendly asking if i've been helped with. Interview itself went well (in my opinion). Talked to their Marketing Lead as well as two devs (i think one was a lead). Took about an hour to chat with them discussing my train of thought for the tech challenge. Discussed some of their recent marketing strategies and campaigns.

    Overall, super friendly group to work / chat with.

    Took a few days to hear back from their HR saying that they were going to go with another candidate but she would gladly talk to me about what i could do (as an entry level developer) to help improve my skills or look for a career path in this field. In the end, didn't get the job but would definitely try applying here again as the culture TRULY does seem true to everything that's being said on the glassdoor reviews.
