We are now looking for a Country Manager in Poland to join the team!


About the role

As Country Manager for Storytel in Poland, you will work with our local team and global functions to set short and long-term strategies to fuel Storytel’s growth on the market. The role includes full P&L ownership, which implies increasing our brand awareness, overseeing development of our content offering and further improving our local product market fit by applying the right set of offerings, partnerships and growth strategies – with the ultimate aim to grow our customer base in Poland.

In this role you will lead our local team in Warsaw. Leadership is an important part of the role, and we are thus looking for candidates with a strong track record in building high-performing teams. 

You will be part of an international group of Country Managers with whom you will exchange ideas and share knowledge with on a regular basis. You will also work closely with the broader team of other European Storytel teams, as well as global functions. You will report to the Regional Manager in Europe.


About you

We are looking for an individual that has:

  • A university degree within Business or similar.
  • 5+ years of proven professional experience from areas within business management, growth marketing, strategy or similar.
  • Experience from successful high-growth digital consumer business, media/entertainment or tech, preferably in a streaming or subscription service context.
  • Excellent understanding of dynamics and trends in the Polish consumer media landscape.
  • Demonstrated experience in building strong teams through solid leadership skills. 
  • Excellent English communication skills, both written and spoken.

To thrive in this role, we believe that you are data driven, have high execution capacity and great organizational skills. In addition, we believe that you are a team player with an entrepreneurial mindset, who thrive in following through on projects from idea to execution. 


What we can offer

Storytel offers a friendly, entrepreneurial and fast-moving work environment where new ideas and creativity is welcomed. We like doing things in new ways and questioning old truths. The Storytel culture – characterised by being welcoming and helpful – is important to us. We don’t believe in hierarchy and micromanagement, but we highly believe in giving responsibility and having people grow with it. And we always find time for “fika” (the Swedish word for sitting down and having a cup of coffee together).

The role is full time, based in Warsaw, Poland. 

Does this sound like you? If you feel like Storytel is a place where you could thrive, let us know and send in your application in English and no later than 2021-08-09.
