Om vår klient

Founded in 2014, our client is an International Web-Hosting Services Group (27 brands all-in-all) that has grown from strength to strength since inception. Headquartered in Sweden, they also have entities in seven major locations worldwide. Growth by acquisition has been their business model to date, and through several strategically placed acquisitions they have quickly become one of the fastest growing companies, within their sector, across the world.

They are powered by teams of exceptional personnel from the technical skill sets, through to financial experts, strategic specialists and the back-office business "backbone". In order to support their continued growth, they require a commercially focused Business Controller to join either their Stockholm or Gothenburg office and drive process simplification & improvement.

  • Fluent Swedish and English language skills.
