I've used multiple tests (Google Developers PageInsights, Moz, GTmetrix, HubSpot's website grader, webpagetest.org, screaming frog SEO spider, and on) and not all are showing problems with your page load speed. One thing that is consistent is your pages are clocking in under 2 seconds across all of those tools. SEO recommendations say under 3 seconds is good for a user experience. Are you seeing high bounce rates? What about your average time on page?
Your images are optimized well. And that is certainly something within your control! You may want to comment on the ideas message in the forums (you'll get updates that way) as we work on optimizing some of this backend code that's outside of your control.

Your results are surprising: when testing different pages (ours https://www.divia.de or www.solutionlinkims.com) I get poor results with e.g. google page insights, GT metrix suggesting the following improvements:
These results also show up for Hubspot.com. As you are employing a lot of web professionals, I would suggest to double check the under the hood site of things.

I didn't intend to imply that there were zero suggestions from those tools for optimization. Instead, the suggestions returned would be addressed in the updates that are implied in the thread you posted earlier. Sorry for the confusion!

Hi Angela, Google Analytics revealed that my bounce rate is 2.77% for desk top and 6.98% for mobile with average session duration being 18 seconds for desk top and 1:06 for mobile which I find surprising because the slow load speed is most noticable on my mobile device.
Thanks for running those tests, I appreciate your efforts at working on the back end code.

I had some others at my work take a look and they had similar results. My collegue suggests that where you're physically located (and how long it takes for server requests), your internet connection in general, and your mobile phone connection -- wifi, 3G, LTE, may all additionally contribute to slow load times. We're seeing your website load in under ~1.17 seconds, including on mobile.
Please comment on the Idea post listed above with anything else that you may want to share with our Engineering team!

This issue is very annoying... As it seems the folks at Hubspot are working on it:
