Hotjar is looking for a driven and ambitious Platform Engineer to support and expand our cloud-based infrastructure used by thousands of sites around the world. The Hotjar infrastructure currently processes more than 10,000 API requests per second, delivers over a billion pieces of static content every week and hosts databases well into terabyte-size ranges, making this an interesting and challenging opportunity. As Hotjar continues to grow rapidly, we are seeking an engineer who has experience dealing with high traffic cloud-based applications and can help Hotjar scale as our traffic multiplies.
This is an excellent career opportunity to join a fast growing remote startup in a key position.

The budgeted compensation range for this role is €60,000 to €80,000 annually. Ranges are based on market research and are equitable to other roles within Hotjar. The actual compensation offered to a successful candidate will be based on relative experience and skills. At this time we are only able to provide official employment status to those located in Malta.
