Stockholm is looking for talent

Grab a chair

Consider a 40-hour workweek, a minimum of five weeks of vacation a year, 480 days of paid parental leave, clean air and nature just around the corner. Add values in the form of flat hierarchies, gender equality and ethnic diversity at work and you get Stockholm: a booming tech scene that is quite unlike any other major startup hub in the world.

With a mission to increase awareness about what Stockholm has to offer in terms of work and quality of life, Invest Stockholm and the Stockholm tech community aim to attract international talent to join one of the fastest growing tech scenes in the world. In the campaign called “Grab a Chair,” Stockholm’s recruiting tech companies urge talents to join their teams while international talents who have already made the move share how Stockholm is good for you.
