Lead Frontend Engineer

We are looking for a product-focused​ & driven lead frontend engineer to join us and help deliver on our vision – becoming the most trustworthy online health company in the world.

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place, not content going to work building yet another service people don't need? 

Our mission

Diet Doctor was founded by Andreas Eenfeldt (M.D.) with the long-term goal of empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health. More than one billion people suffer from health issues related to type 2 diabetes and obesity, for which they're often personally blamed and rarely given the support they deserve. We aim to change that.

We’re fully funded by our members, so we don't need to show any ads, sell any products, or take any industry money. This also means that we have zero external investors, and are instead owned by the 50+ people who work here – and we offer all employees the possibility to buy a stake in the company regularly.

What have we achieved so far?

  • We've been profitable for years, are self-funded, have no VC investment, and lots of cash in the bank.
  • We're the largest keto and low-carb site in the world.
  • We attract about 9 million monthly visits, have 77,000 paying members, and 50+ employees (19 different nationalities).
  • We're the top ranked nutrition website in the world on Trustpilot, and have strong Glassdoor ratings.

What's in it for you?


  • Support with your Personal Growth: We pay for books, courses and conferences you need to continue improving and growing your skills. You will also have the opportunity to grow in new and different areas that interest you
  • Great compensation: We offer a very competitive salary, overtime pay, office bonuses, and the opportunity to own a meaningful part of the company through our employee-stock-offering plan (no vesting period, and you're able keep the shares as long as you want).
  • Laptop of your choice and mobile phone with sim card.
  • Meaningful work: The opportunity to lead the creation of our new frontend stack and work on products that could dramatically improve the health of a billion people.
  • Meaningful relationships: Be part of a massively driven, ambitious, and kind culture filled with people who want to do good in the world. We try to optimize happiness by keeping track of employee satisfaction (Officevibe), using a minimalist workflow process (Kanban), minimizing meetings, and allowing for long uninterrupted blocks of work-time via our dedicated Engineering Focus Time™ slots.
  • Rapid growth: People at Diet Doctor love to grow. You will have lots of ownership and autonomy, but also the support you need to do great things and learn fast. We urge you to keep growing and the company will happily pay for courses or conferences you want to attend. 
  • In addition, we provide relocation & visa support, access to our company apartment in central Stockholm, great company trips (we've previously travelled to the Caribbean, France, and Spain for example), and more.

What you'll do

  • Build great tech products with a focus on frontend that will make it simpler for millions of people to get rid of diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
  • Lead the frontend team, being in charge of frontend architecture and helping decide the roadmap for how we improve and develop our platform and product going forward.
  • Help us shape the future of our tech stack. We're in the starting blocks of building the next generation of our platform and you will play an important role in this.
  • Together with the team shape how we can further improve our development and release processes, sharing insights from your previous experiences.
  • You will inspire your team and be a mentor for junior developers.

Who you are

  • You have 5+ years of frontend experience and knowledge with modern frontend technologies (we are using React, Apollo GraphQL, Typescript, and Gatsby).
  • You're thoughtful when making decisions and love to learn new things.
  • Experience with AWS, Kubernetes/Docker and CircleC is a plus.
  • React-native experience is a plus.
  • You have a sharp eye and a strong intuitive sense of what constitutes great and usable design with a laser focus on making things as simple and beautiful as possible.
  • You think it’s important to work with people that you can learn from and to help others by sharing from your own experience. You want to be part of building a truly great team.
  • You are someone who wants to do their part in truly making the world a better place for everyone.
  • You're a man or woman, gay or straight, identify as a man or woman or anything in between. You're of any ethnicity, religion, or age, and you may or may not have any disabilities.
