This position is for our office located in Stockholm, Sweden. A very scenic city, with excellent infrastructure, clean streets, low crime, many bars, fantastic coffee. A bit cool in winter, but who cares, we just buy more coffee. There is also a very vibrant tech startup scene in Stockholm, much thanks to companies like Spotify, Skype, King.com (Candy crush), Mojang (Minecraft) and others that started and are still operating here.
The city is attracting more and more world-class IT entrepreneurs and developers – it is a very dynamic environment to work in, with a lot of industry colleagues to hang out with and learn from. Our office is very centrally located, by the way, with a fantastic view of the city harbor :)
