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

    Pros

    I used Hotjar in my previous business for more than two years and I was also following their story so I felt like I knew the company. When I started with Hotjar I was expecting to see cracks appearing... That's because, in the past, the picture painted by my previous employers and the reality were really different.

    It wasn't the case with Hotjar.

    I have yet to find something to complain about...

    The pros include:

    - Smart, humble colleagues with common sense who know a lot more than you do
    - True remote lifestyle as long as you have a good internet
    - There is a subtle balance between audacious goals we want to reach and the patience of knowing we're going to get there. We're not in a race against time.
    - The co-founders are all really cool and smart, they have this Level 5 Leadership that Jim Collins describes in Good to Great (read the book!): "These Leaders have a unique combination of fierce resolve and humility."
    - Everybody is encouraged to be productive during their working hours so we can all "go home" on time.
    - Amazing perks and benefits: 40 days holidays, budget to go on holiday, amazing retreats twice a year, budget to learn new stuff... So many! Hotjar clearly cares about their people.

    Cons

    I really can't find any.

    Advice to Management

    I have no doubt that you will stay the way you are. The challenge is going to keep this amazing culture as we grow.

    Content Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hotjar (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The Hotjar recruitment process was by a mile the best I have ever experienced. Even though Hotjar is 100% remote, they managed to make the process personal and enjoyable.

    Hotjar wants to hire the best people and it shows.

    The interview itself comes in Step 3 of Hotjar 5-Step Hiring Process (https://careers.hotjar.com/), was conducted by four Hotjarians (even the CEO attended, which is always a good sign, isn't it?), and was done entirely over video.

    The interviewers clearly worked hard to understand who I was, what I cared about, what I was good at, or what what I should improve on.

    It never really felt like an interview and more like a conversation I could have with some friends.
