Growth Worth Celebrating: Hubstaff Makes the 2018 Inc. 5000

Growth Worth Celebrating: Hubstaff Makes the 2018 Inc. 5000

It’s not every week that our founders call a surprise Friday afternoon video conference, so we knew something big was happening.

Despite the range of time zones from which our team works, quite a few of us were able to tune in around 4pm EST.

True to Hubstaff fashion, the video chat started on time with our co-founder Dave making the announcement:

Hubstaff made the 2018 Inc. 5000 list, debuting at #1,486!

What’s a celebration without confetti?

To earn this recognition, Hubstaff achieved 316% sales growth over the past three years

This impressive climb is a true testament to the power of productivity, the hard work of our remote team, and our drive to help more businesses work better through software.

For those not familiar with the Inc. 5000, the list represents, “a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small and mid-sized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.”

What this recognition means to Hubstaff, as told by our founders

“We are proud to be named a fast-growing company, not only because it means we’re helping more businesses fight inefficiency and work better, but also because we’re able to achieve this growth as a completely remote team.” – Dave Nevogt, Hubstaff CEO and co-founder

“We grow by helping our customers grow. Our productivity tools allow business owners to streamline everything from timesheets to payroll, so they can focus more time on reaching growth goals.” – Jared Brown, Hubstaff CTO and co-founder

There you have it. Making the Inc. 5000 is an achievement worth celebrating, and encouragement for where we’re headed.
