Culture at Hotjar

Headquartered on the beautiful island of Malta, in the ‘heart’ of the Mediterranean, Hotjar is a successful, self-funded/bootstrapped, start-up that operates on a fully remote basis, and with an essential emphasis on personal development.

Spread throughout the Americas, Europe, 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. We have no room on our team for disrespect, office politics or discrimination of any kind. 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.

We've written an article on our blog about how we collaborate effectively while remote. And here's how we’re challenging traditional business leadership methods.
