About the position

We’re looking to hire a smart and driven professional with a passion for people to lead and build our people capabilities here at Diet Doctor so that we can continue to successfully grow our company and achieve our mission.

Why work for Diet Doctor

We offer an attractive work environment filled with professionally engaged people, competitive salaries and the opportunity to become a co-owner. More importantly, we’ll give you the chance to work for a purpose-driven organization that 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? That’s fine – we can help you move here and find a place to live.
