Product Lead

North Kingdom is looking for a Product Lead to join us in making world-class experiences and services for clients such as Google, LEGO, Supercell, EA, Riot, and HBO. 

We are looking for an experienced, strategic, and passionate person who has the competence and expertise to join our newly formed product management team.

You will be an essential and prominent part of the product team at our Stockholm or Skellefteå office. You should be curious about exploring the creative possibilities for clients and have a natural interest in what we do. We think you are social by nature and feel great teamwork is necessary: a good ol' Friday fika or after-work gaming session. We would also like to get your perspective on driving creativity and innovation, and your thoughts about the next big thing! We hope to hear from you soon, and we are looking forward to reading your application.
