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. 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.
