At Hotjar, we're creating Product Experience Insights software for digital product teams. We help show how users behave and what they feel strongly about, so product teams can deliver real value, fast.
The Hotjar Product and Engineering team consist of three tribes, each with multiple product squads focused on multiple areas of the product and the business. You will report directly to our Programme Manager while working within our Scale and Support Tribe. This role would benefit someone who understands business metrics and knows that building products are necessary. Because of your close collaboration with stakeholders of all levels, strong communication and prioritization skills are crucial to be successful in this role.

You should also have experience working in a fast-paced environment with a rapidly evolving technology stack, and be focused on pragmatism, agility, and efficiency.
