The Hubstaff journey and vision

Hubstaff began in 2012, looking to create a better way to understand how work was being performed and to track time as more companies began to rely on remote teams and tools. Companies that were at the forefront of this trend needed a dependable time tracker that could also help validate task and workforce management.

Hubstaff has more than a decade of experience serving companies with remote teams. During this time, we have built a full suite of tools that support fostering a positive employee experience.

With us, companies can better understand how to assist their employees and optimize productivity by combining time tracking with analytics and benchmarks. We make it easy to run automated payroll and integrate with CRMs and project management tools.

Where we’re headed next

This is an exciting time for Hubstaff, full of potential for where we can coach companies to be more trusting of remote workers and celebrate all the things they can accomplish when managers focus on empowerment.

“The Hubstaff team is strong, and our future is bright. It is their hard work and dedication that brought us here. What we’ve built over the past decade with all of their help is nothing short of amazing. Not many companies can say they got to where we are, let alone have done it without raising capital or taking on debt,” said Jared Brown.

He continued, “I take immense pride in the fact that we provide a livelihood for 100 team members and growing. We are proof of how remote work can succeed.

I honestly feel like we are just getting started. In the next decade, workforce analytics software like ours will become a part of the technology stack for the majority of businesses around the world. What gets me excited is that we have a chance to be the category leader in the space.

This did not happen by accident. So, thank you to all of our team members, partners, and customers who have helped make Hubstaff a success along the way.”
