About the role

We are looking for a Country Manager to manage our operations in Indonesia - both on a day-to-day and long term, strategic basis.

In addition, we believe that you are a team player with an entrepreneurial mindset. You are able to work proactively, and take full ownership of your work and projects. You are able to think creatively and transform your ideas into practice.

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).
