What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Hotjar?

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.

How are the career development opportunities at Hotjar?

Pros

Uncommon transparency in every aspect Strong focus on career growth and self-development Unique professional challenges Great team of smart and open-minded people Unbelievable perks

Cons

Cannot say to be honest. After 9 months here I consider it as the best job I had so far. Doubts will come later I guess :) One downside may be a bit stale Angular 1.x codebase (significant part of the whole). Good thing here is that everyone sees value in improving things and many efforts are driven towards that goal.

Keep it up!
