This is an exciting time for Spanish Diet Doctor. After launching the site less than a year ago, we already have an average of around 21,000 visitors per day (with a record of nearly 28,000 daily visitors). The site is growing at an ever-increasing rate. It’s exciting and inspiring to receive emails and comments on a daily basis from Spanish-speaking people who have changed their lives with the help of the site, and from doctors who recommend us to their patients.
We have big plans for Spanish Diet Doctor, including launching our membership on the site in the fall. This will mean that our popular meal planner tool will be available in Spanish, and there will be Spanish-subtitled versions of our video content available as part of an optional membership. This is a huge task, and we have decided to recruit a third full-time team Diet Doctor member to work on the Spanish site.
Could you be this person? If so, we want to hear from you. This could be the opportunity of a lifetime. You will have a varied job that will allow you to learn and grow fast. Plus, you’ll be part of a project that makes a real difference to the lives of tens of thousands of people, every day.
Come join our company in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. Don’t live here yet? No problem – we’ll help you move and find a place to live.
About the position

- Experience using social media platforms for businesses.
- A belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration and goodness.

Why work for Diet Doctor
Diet Doctor is the world’s largest low-carb site, with nearly 400,000 daily visitors, 53,000 paying members and 20 full-time coworkers (about 40 when including freelancers) – almost doubling in size every year. We aim to keep our rapid growth up for as long as possible as this enables us to make a big positive impact in the world.
Our goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health – by making low carb simple.
We are funded by the people (through our optional membership), owned by those who work here, and – because we want to build a company that can do good for 100+ years – we’ve turned down every investment opportunity we’ve received from venture capitalists. Fortunately, with the amazing support of our members, we’ve been able to fund this growth with zero outside investments.
We offer competitive salaries and the opportunity to become a co-owner in our explosively growing company. More importantly, we’ll give you the chance to work for a purpose-driven organization that truly exists to make the world a better place.
You’ll get the opportunity to travel internationally too, if you want that. Some of our coworkers regularly travel to low-carb related conferences all over the world. This could help you network with our international team of expert contributors.
Most of our full-time staff work together in a beautiful office in central Stockholm. So would you, if this position is right for you.
Don’t live in Stockholm? No problem – we’ll help you move here and find a place to live.
Timing not perfect? Reach out anyway – we’re willing to wait for the right person.

This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss – apply now.
In order to fit in our team you need to live up to the requirements mentioned above, but otherwise we’re positively set towards diversity – we encourage diversity in skills, interests, religious and political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, etc.
Our goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health, by making low carb simple. At least a billion people could benefit from eating fewer carbs, primarily but not exclusively people with obesity, type 2 diabetes and other problems related to metabolic syndrome. These people are currently not getting the support they deserve, and we aim to change that.
To achieve this goal, we need to work with fantastic people who are passionate about the enormous benefits keto and low carb can have for people, and who can help us create incredible products that make low carb simple.
Could you be one of those people? Do you have the essential qualities we’re looking for? Are you the right person to join our dynamic team of hardworking and passionate people striving to make the world a better place?
