  • Provide legal advice to executives and team members on a wide range of legal topics.
  • Work with external legal advisors to manage Hotjar’s legal risks and ensure compliance with state and federal laws.
  • Implement internal processes for managing Hotjar’s legal workflows and record-keeping, and generally to improve efficiencies and comply with Hotjar’s contractual obligations.

Job Requirements:
  • A J.D (or equivalent) legal degree with a license to practice law, having wide-ranging experience practicing law in-house, ideally in the SaaS industry.
  • Significant experience with standard contractual or business agreements in the US together with strong negotiation, risk assessment, and collaboration skills.
  • A business enablement approach to addressing customer legal matters and contract reviews.
  • Experience with data privacy regulations and best practices. 
  • Desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment, following Hotjar’s company values [3], culture [4] and ways of working [5].
  • Must submit to a background check confidentially processed by our third-party. 

Compensation Range: The budgeted compensation range for this role is $95,000 to $125,000 annually, where the offer typically falls in the range of $105,000 to $110,000. Our ranges are established after performing market research but the specific compensation amount of the offer will be determined based on relative experience, skills, and equity across the team. We encourage all candidates to read our Recruitment FAQs [6] to further understand our approach to compensation and how we structure our contracts.

In addition to the monetary compensation, we provide all team members with an assortment of unique and popular perks [7] valued at more than €10,000 a year, plus stock options and 40 days of annual leave. These have been chosen to reflect our values [8] and ideals, be it encouraging constant learning with our Personal Development Budget, a great work/life balance with the Holiday Budget, or a happy, healthy team with our Wellbeing Budget.

Here at Hotjar, we welcome team members of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences. Working with respect is built into our core values [9]: we are honest, tolerant, and inclusive. We celebrate the uniqueness and strength found in diversity. We all commit to creating a safe working environment and are allies to those less privileged. And we fully believe that living by these values helps us to make our company, and our product, better.
