At Hotjar, we’re building Behavior Analytics software for businesses selling online. We make it easy for them to go beyond traditional web analytics and understand what users are really doing on their site.

This is an excellent remote career opportunity within the Product & Engineering (P&E) organization, playing a part in delivering the next wins for Hotjar.


You will:

  • Drive the team in fostering an understanding of our users to influence how product teams think about mid and long-term product strategy.
  • Craft, end-to-end, research projects that help teams uncover actionable findings, and help in translating those into business impact.
  • Partner with cross-functional teams (Product Management, Design, Data Analysis, Marketing, and Customer support colleagues) to identify high-impact research studies, understanding when to bring in others for support.
  • Prioritize research needs across numerous work streams by evaluating the moment, scope and scale of potential studies.
  • Decide, balancing proven techniques with creative solutions, which set of methods and tools match each research question in order to create multi-phase, mixed-method studies.
  • Infuse research insights to evolve Hotjar's understanding of different users' profiles, identifying big opportunities as well as quick wins by communicating studies outcomes and the reason behind them.
  • Experience working across teams. Well versed in design, coordination, and execution of research studies, end-to-end.
  • Experience defining key research questions and goals, identifying appropriate methods, executing studies, and synthesizing findings.
  • Experience educating teams about the benefits of introducing user-centric practices and frameworks.
  • Experience with qualitative and quantitative research methods, ranging from user interviews to surveys.
  • Experience promoting insights across groups with a natural inclination to always think MVP first and a focus on impact.
  • Desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment, in-line with Hotjar's company values, culture and ways of working.
  • Must submit to a background check confidentially processed by our third-party.
