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 methods. The Storytel culture - characterized by being welcoming and helpful - is important to us. We don’t believe in hierarchy and micromanagement, we highly believe in giving responsibility and having people grow alongside it. And we always find time for “fika” (the Swedish concept of sitting down and having a cup of coffee together). Our office in Bulgaria is situated right in the city center of Sofia.
