This is a full-time position suitable for either an outstanding recent graduate with project experience and passion towards customer happiness or a more experienced professional with a background in implementation project management and consultancy.

  • Play your part in a growing international success story and to make your mark on our journey in Sweden
  • We are agile and focus on excellence. Our work is fast-paced, fun, and we avoid hierarchy
  • Time for your own hobbies and interests. Yes! Go home, relax, have a life. We won’t be hanging around late at the office and nor should you!
