Culture at Hotjar

Hotjar is a successful, self-funded/bootstrapped, start-up that operates on a fully remote basis, and with an emphasis on personal development.

Spread throughout Europe, the Americas, and Africa, our team casts a wide net across a multitude of locations, lifestyles, and backgrounds. It’s our differences that make us interesting, and our shared belief in Hotjar’s Core Values that bind us together.

Hotjar's culture is guided by respect, transparency, collaboration, and direct feedback. 

Hotjar pledges to be a harassment-free and discrimination-free company. 

We believe people from different backgrounds, with different identities and experiences, make our product, and our company, better – just as our users come from everywhere, a diverse team helps ensure we create a product that is accessible to a wide range of people. 

We're obsessed with communicating with our users as well as within the team. We hate bureaucracy and slow-moving organizations – but we're suckers for well-defined processes. We love lean, iterative improvements, and success is measured by the value we create for our users.
