We are based in Stockholm but our customer reach is global. You can work from anywhere, but ideally you’d be based in one of the Nordics, as you’ll be required to travel to Stockholm regularly. You’ll start as soon as possible and will hit the ground running – as the world’s biggest group project, the climate challenge, has already suffered from too much stagnation.
Let’s do this.
