    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!

    Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hotjar (Miami, FL) in September 2019.


    The interview process is clearly outlined on the company website so I knew what to expect. To summarize, you first fill out an online form, then you get asked to answer questions over video recording, then there is a 1h interview call with the Lead and Director of the team you are interviewing for, then there is a task stage that takes roughly 2 weeks (paid), then there is a 30-minute call with the CEO and, finally, there is an offer call. I also got asked to do a few more calls before the offer (with an additional team member, and a second call with the CEO). The process is lengthy - it took 2.5 months between submitting the questionnaire and receiving the offer call. Part of that is because there is a time-lapse of roughly two weeks between stages (about 5 days to hear back, and then the rest is time until the appointment). The questions on the interview call are standard interview questions - a combination of behavioral questions and questions about your experience. For the task, you get invited to Hotjar's Slack and get to interact with members of the team, ask questions and learn more about the style/culture of Hotjar. Everyone was really nice and helpful throughout the process. This is the most unique portion of the processes and it's really fun and interesting. The process requires a lot of time and dedication from the candidate (and Hotjar) - it seems to be designed this way to make sure that the candidate really wants this job and to ensure that it is a good fit for both sides.
