We're looking for designer who always puts the user first, enjoys working in a tight-knit international team, and thrives in an openminded and fast-paced work environment. Right now we're looking at a packed schedule in the coming months and need a visual designer for a variety of different design tasks. 

Since launch in 2013, Omni has grown to become one of the biggest news services in Sweden. Last fall, we added two new economy news services in Sweden and Norway; Omni Economy and My E24.. 

Our editors gather news from hundreds of Swedish and international news sources every day. Through collection and curation, our editors continuously create a balanced selection of news in our popular news apps. The users can adjust their own news mix and follow topics that interest them, giving them a unique option to deep-dive into selected subjects.

The Omni product team is a tight-knit group of 13 people working in Stockholm, Gdansk, and Oslo. Our philosophy is to focus on our users’ problems, letting that guide us when building successful products and businesses.
