Are you passionate about contributing to a renowned Swedish brand's global expansion and its mission to advance healthy eating? Join our dynamic team at WASA and play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our iconic brand.

Over a century ago, in the northern reaches of Sweden, a visionary baker named Karl aspired to deliver delicious and nutritious crispbread to every corner of the country. In 1919, WASA was born, and today, we continue to fulfill that dream by offering our high-quality products to the world, empowering people to make healthier food choices every day.

WASA is part of the Barilla Group.

Joining the WASA Global Team means embracing the responsibility of becoming the brand's true custodians. We are focused on inspiring our business partners, driving WASA's growth, and creating an enjoyable workplace environment for us and everyone working with the brand.

We've launched a new Assortment Strategy and are looking to hire a WASA Global Marketing Manager for the part of the range under the "Craft & Tasty Breaks" banner. It's a part of the portfolio that is not as big in volume as our core, classic crispbread but is very dynamic. This role involves leading several of our current product ranges for exceptional healthy taste experiences (Core 2.0, Wasa Thins, Din Stund, Wasa Sandwich, Sourdough, Rounds, Crackers, Biscuits, etc.), and shaping the future with innovation.

  • You are proactive and have a natural ability to lead others/projects.
  • Proficiency in English, with knowledge of an additional European language considered an advantage.

Our Offer:

  • Our office is situated in the heart of Stockholm. We offer hybrid working arrangements, blending remote work (up to 50% of the time) and office-based work.
  • Professional development and global experience in an international environment with wide exposure.
  • Involvement in national and international projects with high responsibility.
