Does Hotjar offer vision insurance?

Pros

Work from home. Vacation. Good for someone early in their career. Someone who is a seasoned individual can make way more and also get insurance from his/her employer at a different place. This place is a typical European body shop. You work hard but don't get paid on the same level. They will give you holidays thats it. If that works for you then go for it. If not look for other companies that have better products and can way way more(40-50+) than 100K.

Cons

Salary is much lower than what other companies are willing to pay candidates. In the DevOps arena they can't compete with other similar remote work places that pay way more than then 90K Euros. In my opinion that is very low. For someone in the US that is a very low salary. The concept won't go too far and there are many competitors in this market who have engineered a much better product than these egoistic fools. They need to open their windows and look outside. The business model has no growth besides figuring out what a user is doing on ur website. There are other sites out then that can do way better and for cheaper.

Advice to Management

Learn better management. Try to pay well. Keep the end goal in mind. Learn to strategize.

Does Hotjar offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

- The people. Smart, caring, supportive. It's a fun environment to be in because of those you get to work along side, or connect with from other areas of the company. - The attitude. Hotjar really is a people-first company, this comes through in all decision making. There are core values that are built into how decisions are made across whatever topic, at all levels of the company. - Work/life balance. We have a great number of holiday days; there is ZERO expectation to ever work on your days off, instead this is actively discouraged; there is also paid leave types to cover a very wide variety of needs, so your vacation days can be kept truly as vacation days. Nobody will bother you on your time off, or expect you to take a meeting outside of your working hours. If you need to do a school run every day, put it in your calendar and your team will work meetings around that. - There's a good amount of upward and lateral mobility within Hotjar, internal growth is really encouraged. - Fully remote! There's no office you might be expected to go to! Each role is remote within either the Americas timezones, or the EMEA timezones, so pretty far reaching. And we can work from outside of these zones for shorter period of times also. - A lot of effort put into there still being strong connections with coworkers, even though everyone is in different places.

Cons

No company is perfect, but it is hard to list anything as a con. There's always room for improvement, and Hotjar tries to keep improving. One con could be that smaller team sizes in some areas can mean that priorities often need to be delayed or shifted, due to a smaller bandwidth.
