  • Experience conducting qualitative research in a corporate environment, including concept-testing, usability, interviews, diary studies.
  • Ability to pull in industry trends, market research and benchmarking to surface actionable insights.
  • Familiarity with experiments and macro- and micro-optimisations for conversions of different types.
  • Experience working autonomously and transversely across teams. Well-versed in both coordination and execution of research projects.
  • Experience in educating product teams in research, enabling and supporting them when performing tactical research.
  • Demonstrated ability to promote insights across groups, multiple squads, and tribes.
  • Desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment, following Hotjarโ€™s company values, culture and ways of working.
  • Must submit to a background check confidentially processed by our third-party.

Your Journey to Success:

  • After 1 month: You'll have completed your Hotjar onboarding and feel fully set up in the Conversion tribe.
