Head of Community

Are you passionate about low carb and building community? Join us and help us empower a billion people to dramatically improve their health.

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place, not content going to work working on yet another product 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 40+ people who work here – and we offer all employees the possibility to acquire 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

This is a full-time position in Stockholm, Sweden, and you would be leading our 4-person community team. The community team is located throughout North America, and it's a key part of Diet Doctor's mission to make low carb simple. The team is responsible for customer support, helping users on their low-carb journey, and creating a warm and safe place where people feel cared for. 

As the Head of Community, your main tasks would be:

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. We are still a small team with lots of opportunity for personal growth.
    • Great compensation: Market-level salary, overtime pay, and owning a meaningful part of the company through our employee stock offering (you have never heard of a better share program). There will be opportunities to travel to company and community events if you want that.
