We have an ever-growing community of brilliant developers all around the world.

As stated in our HubSpot Culture Code, we believe in being humble, empathetic, remarkable, adaptable, transparent, and helpful. This culture extends into our developer community with thousands of helpful developers in our community. 

The HubSpot CMS world is a beautiful blend of proprietary and open source philosophies. Although the core CMS is a proprietary platform, we deeply believe in open source and work really hard to incorporate and empower community as much as possible. 

Both community members and HubSpotters run open source projects built on-top of the underlying platform. As we accelerate the number of APIs and endpoints, this will only continue to grow.  

Additionally, the HubSpot product team - the folks who actually code the core CMS - are VERY active in the community and collaborate with community developers regularly to help shape the products and the future.
