  • Fluent communication skills in English (Swedish is a plus).

Can I work from home?

Yes! As we are in a strange situation in terms of how we can or can’t meet our colleagues until the world goes back to normal again. We work 100% from home and our teams work as distributed teams across Europe. We expect you to be able to handle your duties with a “remote first” mindset and that will continue to be part of the deal even when we can come back to our offices in Sweden as per normal.

What employment conditions apply ?

This is a full time position with 6 weeks' vacation. We have a company policy that specifies a 6-month probationary period.

If you live in Sweden or Germany, you would be directly employed by City Network International AB or our German subsidiary.

If you live in any country other than Sweden or Germany (but within EU), we will enter into a contractor agreement as applicable to the legal situation in your country.

Salary and compensation will be negotiated during the interview process.

How's work at City Network? 

We're growing pretty quickly at this stage, in customers, revenue, and headcount. We have recently been acquired by Iver, but continue to operate as a separate unit under the Iver umbrella. That said, we're also solidly profitable. The company has existed for more than 15 years, so don't expect cash-burning startup insanity. 

As a company, we strive to improve and perfect the structure of how we collaborate and communicate. We have to set a pretty high bar here for ourselves, given that our role in the market comes with a great deal of responsibility. So, we are actively looking for people who come with an open mindset and an eagerness to help us all get better. Suppose you have specific technical expertise on an issue that another team of colleagues is working on. In that case, you should expect to be asked to contribute your knowledge to solve the problem — just as you will expect to get that same support from them, when you have an issue of your own to resolve. City Network has signed a Collective Bargaining Agreement for the Swedish entity and is part of Iver AB. 

 I'm interested. What's next?

We'd like to hear from you! And we have a few additional questions we would like to ask you. You'll be able to apply for this position until 11th Nov 2021. We will start reviewing and inviting applications right away, so make sure you get yours in early.
