    I have been working at Hotjar full-time


    There's a ton...100% remote workplace. Hotjar does not care where you work. The management team realizes people work best when they are trusted, empowered and comfortable. There's also some amazing perks like 40 days of paid leave a year, a home office budget, company retreats and more. My co-workers are wicked smart and our product is amazing. It's an amazing place to work.


    Because we're 100% remote it can sometimes be hard to get in contact with the person you're trying to connect with when you're trying to connect with them. They could be on the other side of the world. We've got the tools in place to facilitate this but it takes some getting used to.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the really strong focus on company culture. It's what makes Hotjar special.

    Hero Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotjar (London, England) in September 2017.


    The process involved a number of steps. It started with written questions. Next there was a video round where I answered questions in a video. After this, I was interviewed by a hiring manager and the person leading the recruitment for the role. Finally there was a task, which took a few days, and a call with the CEO.

    As the role had a technical part, I ended up having technical and non-technical parts of the interview.

    Overall, the process was very thorough. It had more stages than I'm used to, but I think this was a good thing. It gave me a chance to ask a lot of questions, and really understand Hotjar.

  • Our Hotjar devs are learning from their fellow Pythonistas at Europython this week. If you're there too, be sure to catch our own Stephanie Mifsud's talk on Thursday:

    Optimizing queries for not so big data in PostgreSQL

    Sub Community: PyData Hotjar's user recordings count above 400 million, with supporting tables containing 4.5 billion records. This 5TB data fits nicely into Postgres and doesn't quite merit the full big data suite of tools.

  • We are re-investing €4 million into Hotjar to make it even better. Find out how!

    How we're re-investing €4 Million to make Hotjar even better

    Hotjar was founded in 2014 with a bold vision to 'Change the way digital experiences are built and improved by democratizing user analytics and feedback'. In less than three years, we went from running a 9-month beta program, to making Hotjar available to the public, to experiencing tremendous growth by finally reaching an Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of €8 Million as of June 2017.
