Note: Although this is a remote position, we are only seeking candidates in European / African timezones between UTC-1 and UTC+3.

We are currently seeking ambitious and pragmatic software engineers who are passionate about building great online apps. You'll use your skills to have a real impact on a product used by over 915,000 users from 190 different countries. We are looking for an engineer who loves being part of a team but is also self-motivated and loves the idea of working remotely.

As a Backend Software Engineer with Hotjar, you’ll be working on developing and improving features built primarily in JavaScript, AngularJS, Python and PostgreSQL. You will be creating production grade Python code and will have the opportunity to implement solutions designed to handle incredibly high levels of traffic. You’ll need to be highly process driven and eager to learn new technologies and programming languages. We favour those with a delivery-focused mindset, versus a focus on flawless or over-engineered code.

The actual compensation offered 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. All other team members will join as full-time consultants and will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees where they reside.

Requirements

  • Strong background in benchmarking, optimizing, scaling, and taking care of high levels of traffic.

  • Experience using Python and PostgreSQL.

  • Experience using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS, jQuery, Redis, Lua, Linux, Nginx, Elasticsearch, and Amazon Web Services a plus.

  • Familiarity with automated testing frameworks such as Selenium.

  • Familiarity with distributed revision control systems such as Mercurial or Git.

  • Fluent in English with excellent written and verbal interpersonal skills.
