VP Product, with a passion for design

At Teemly, we believe that the secret behind a team’s performance lies in the interaction between colleagues. We think everyone deserves to be part of a team (s)he loves, and that life is better if you spend 40+ hours per week with people you click with. We are convinced that great teams deliver great business results. With that mindset, we built a virtual office that removes the social barriers that physically distributed teams across the globe have complained about.

When Covid-19 hit, we were in the middle of our BETA product development phase. Now our product has been put to test and is yielding overwhelmingly positive reactions among our test users. As one of them said: “Teemly is our office now. It is where we work, it is much better than the systems we have used earlier. In Teemly we work together, talk ad hoc.”

As we approach our launch beyond BETA, we are looking for a Vice President Product, with a design background; eager to drive the product design together with the founders. Our small and fast-growing “teem” is spread out internationally and works almost fully remotely. We use our virtual office on a daily basis, so you will also cater to our own needs. The founders are located in Stockholm and haven’t physically met in months.
