TOGETHER AS A TEAM
We’re a small team consisting of around 6 people. We are quite autonomous, self-organising and self-sufficient in many ways, which means part of our daily work is to define how we get things done together. We are based in southern Sweden on two locations, and we have a hybrid work policy.
We are passionate about our consumer needs and value development speed and fast feedback, and we are responsible for the things we build throughout the whole life-cycle, which means operations is an important part of our work.
