Contentsquare is a global digital experience analytics company empowering the brands you interact with every day to build better online experiences for all.

In 2022, we raised $600M in Series F funding, and we were also recognized as a certified Great Place to Work in France, Germany, Israel, US and UK. In November 2023, we acquired Heap, our largest acquisition to date, strengthening our analytics platform to provide a 360 view of users' digital experience.

Mission 🚀

  • The Tag group develops a TypeScript tracker collecting anonymous data to feed Contentsquare SAAS products. It respects privacy, personal user information, internet security protocols and regulations. It collects all the user interactions (pageviews, clicks, mouse movements, scrolling, ...) of the web visitors of our thousands of enterprise-grade clients (i.e. Microsoft, Verizon, Wallmart, HSBC, Disney, Ikea, ...) and millions of small and medium businesses (through the acquisition of Hotjar and Heap).
  • As the tracker is loaded and executed on millions of user sessions a day, the Tag group is driven by three main pillars: code quality, security, and performance.
  • We pay a lot of attention to performance, compatibility with all available browsers and versions, support for the diversity of front-end frameworks, anticipation of new rules and regulations to foresee future developments that could break the functioning of our data collection.
  • The data flow that powers Contentsquare Products naturally starts with the tracker, giving it a critical role in the construction of our product portfolio. We are proud to continuously enrich our product functionalities linked to session replay recordings, tag configurator capabilities, error tracking, merchandising data collection and so on, while guaranteeing the leanest impact on customer websites.
  • In the last years and even more so with Project One, the Tag group has embarked on an ambitious mission: Deliver the best-in-class Tag, recognized as such by our customers, the analytics market and our competitors! 🚀
