We’re hiring a lead front-end developer – change the world with Team Diet Doctor


Would you love to join an outstanding team in creating simple and beautiful software that could change the lives of over a billion people?

If so, we want to hear from you.

We are hiring a driven front-end lead for our tech team who is passionate about creating experiences users love.

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.

The role

We’re looking for a person with passion and ability for creating user experiences. You’ll be a key member of a small team with the opportunity to influence our company priorities and how we work.

You can play an important part in renewing our technology stack too if you want that. At the moment, we run multiple WordPress installations on AWS, use GitHub as our development platform, and agile as our software-development approach. During the spring of 2018 we’ll decide what technology architecture makes sense for the future, start building it, and break out certain services from WordPress.

About you

The role is challenging and not for everyone. You’ll need all the following qualities to be considered for the job:

Essential qualities

  • Strong experience and interest in creating simple and inspiring user experiences that help people change.
  • Several years’ experience with writing good and effective code that handles performance needed for millions of visitors. You have good technical taste and want to find the right solution instead of temporary fixes.
  • Ability to work effectively with designers and back-end engineers to combine the best from user experience thinking, visual design, and software development to build awesome web applications.
  • Excellent English.
  • A strong desire to do great things and learn fast.
  • Love to work independently, and to get things done fast with consistently high quality.
  • Belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration and goodness.
  • Desire to do something meaningful.

Why work for Diet Doctor

Diet Doctor has about 250,000 daily visitors, 45,000 paying members, and 20 full-time coworkers – growing at about 200 % annually. Our goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health – by making low carb simple.

We are funded by the people, 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 support of our members, we’ve been able to fund this growth without outside investments.

We offer competitive salaries and the opportunity to become a co-owner in our explosively growing company. Even more importantly – we give you the chance to work for a purpose-driven company that exists to do good in the world.


You’ll get the opportunity to travel internationally too if you want that. We travel to conferences all over the world, go on a week-long low-carb cruise in the Carribean annually, and this year we went on a weekend trip with the team to Nice, France.

Don’t live in Stockholm but speak excellent English? No problem – we’ll help you to move here and find a place to live.

Timing not perfect? Reach out anyway – we’ll wait for the right person.

Alternatively: Do you know anyone who is a perfect match? Tell that person about this ad!

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. It’s otherwise a bonus if you can increase our team’s diversity – we see difference in skills, interests, religious and political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, etc. as an advantage.

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 awesome people who are passionate about making a dent in the universe. Could that be you?

If so send us your CV and we’ll get in touch.
