We are looking for an exceptional and ambitious Front-end Developer who will use their extensive knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to improve Hotjar’s web client – used by thousands of people worldwide – as well as the Hotjar script, loaded by millions of people daily. We appreciate developers who plan their work before writing a single line of code and who understand why code performance and writing tests is so important. You will collaborate closely with Designers, Product people and other developers to build, test and ship improvements in a continuous deployment environment.

As a Front-end Developer, you will:

  • Be a part of one of our multidisciplinary product teams working on improving existing features as well as creating new ones focusing primarily on front-end technologies.
  • Create production grade HTML, CSS and JavaScript code, and will have the opportunity to implement solutions designed to handle incredibly high volumes of data.
