Sustainability, health, and transparency are the core values that guide everything we do. Basically, we exist to make it easy for people to eat better and live healthier lives without recklessly taxing the planet’s resources in the process.  If any of this resonates with you, then maybe you’d like work for Oatly, too.

    • You are ready to make your mark in a smaller, growing brand leveraging your experience to deliver amazing results and build an outstanding company
    • You have an entrepreneurial spirit in that you’re comfortable with ambiguity and are energized by the process of building something lasting from the ground up
Another bulleted list felt redundant, so we wrote this long sentence with all the ways we sweeten the deal to work with us, like providing 20 days paid vacation, really great benefits with 100% medical coverage for employee, genuinely great coworkers who want to see the company and each other succeed, and a start-up vibe with an established company history.
