    I have been working at Hotjar full-time (Less than a year)


    Where do I even start? This is the happiest, most productive I've ever been at a company.

    The team is composed of some of the most intelligent people I've ever known and everyone is committed to delivering the highest quality work.

    The culture is outstanding. I've never worked somewhere where I've felt as much trust as I do from my teammates and leads here at Hotjar. There is zero micro management. I have the complete freedom to get work my work down how and when I want. If I need to take a long break to take care of my kids, there's nothing but encouragement.

    And the PERKS! My goodness. €200/mo. for a working space allowance (pays for my internet at home, Apple Music, Pandora, and healthy snacks). €200/mo. for wellbeing. €1000 a year for personal development, €2000 a year holiday budget, and a €4000 office budget.

    8 WEEKS OF HOLIDAYS!!! I can't tell you how much flexibility that creates to take care of things in my personal life. I can take a half or full day here and there to take care of my budgeting and tasks around the house.

    Honestly I could go on and on. Working for Hotjar has been the best professional experience of my life 👍🏼


    None. Absolutely, positively, 100% none. (I would have just said none, but turns out Glassdoor has a 5 word minimum even for the cons section)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and thank you!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Hotjar (Remote, OR) in August 2017.


    After filling out an online form, I was asked to submit a bio video. We then had a phone interview, a 2-3 day test task, and finally a presentation/demo. The whole process is we documented by the company.
