East Sweden has everything you need to make your whole life and every single part of it work together. Which means you don’t have to choose between an exciting career or a happy home life – we give you both. Come work with us!

What's in it for you?

  • When your family grows you will need more space. We’ve probably got more living space that’s cheaper and closer to where you’re going.

  • With less time commuting you have more time to spend on things that you like, or things that just need to get done.

  • We know that work is not your whole life, and we respect that raising a family takes time.

  • We’re one of Sweden’s most expansive innovation regions, with a great variety of successful companies and world-leading research. That equals a lot of opportunities for a great career.
