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.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hotjar (London, England) in July 2017.
I submitted an application on their website where I was asked a couple of questions - both technical and personal. Two to three days later, someone from the company emailed me more questions asking me to make a video of myself answering those and send it to them. I did and then I was asked to attend an online interview with them where the job was discussed and asked a few more questions. In the online interview, they asked me a couple of personal questions first and later, they showed me a two code samples, one in AngularJS and the other in python and asked me to analyse the code line by line and explain it to them what it does and how it works. There was another stage after this where I would have been given to do a paid task for the company but unfortunately, I didn't make it to this step.
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:
We are re-investing €4 million into Hotjar to make it even better. Find out how!
