Lead Recruiter

We are looking for a smart, driven, and hard working Lead Recruiter who can help us build a world-class team - enabling us to become the most trustworthy online health company in the world.

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place, not happy working for companies that only exist to make money? 

Our mission

Diet Doctor is a startup founded by Andreas Eenfeldt (M.D.) with the 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 40+ 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?

  • Profitability for years, self-funded, no VC investment, and lots of cash in the bank.
  • The by far largest keto and low-carb site in the world.
  • About 9 million monthly visits, 70k paying members and 45+ full-time co-workers.
  • Top ranked nutrition website in the world on Trustpilot, and strong Glassdoor ratings.

What you'll do

We want to hire a Lead Recruiter who will lead and execute the following talent-acquisition processes:

  • Employer branding: Build brand awareness amongst top talent.
  • Headhunting: Find incredible people who are passionate about what we do.
  • Recruiting: Evaluate candidates and only hire those who will live our values and get great things done fast. 
  • Negotiating: Find win-win deals for the candidates we decide to hire.
  • On-boarding: Help new hires get a great start at Diet Doctor.

What's in it for you?

  • Meaningful work: The opportunity to take part in creating products that could dramatically improve the health of a billion people. Since we are still a quite small team, your work will have a big impact from day one.
  • Meaningful relationships: Be part of a massively driven, ambitious, and kind culture filled with people who want to do good in the world. We believe in encouraging our team members to recognize each others efforts on a regular basis. We keep track of employee satisfaction (Officevibe) and aim to minimize meetings.
  • Personal growth: People at Diet Doctor love to grow. We'll give you lots of responsibility 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 and offer employees compensation to encourage them to mind their wellness. There might be opportunities to travel to different parts of the world with the video team to record videos.
  • Great compensation: Market-level salary, overtime pay, and owning a meaningful part of the company through our employee stock offering (trust us: you have never heard of a better shares program).

Who you are

  • A track record of being able to find and hire excellent people.
  • Smart, driven and hard working.
  • Fast learner who loves to grow.
  • Belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration and goodness.
  • Strong desire to do something meaningful.
  • Love to work independently and to get things done fast with consistently high quality.
  • The ability to work in a fast-paced and unstructured environment.
  • Excellent written and spoken English.
