About the company:
Stockholm Gas and the gas grid currently provides an essential infrastructure service that helps to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions by reducing and reusing waste gases both at the point of production, for example at municipal wastewater treatment plants and, at the point of use, through the displacement of fossil fuels in buildings and in transport.

The current composition of the gas supplied through the network includes approx. 80% biogas. In time, we work towards increasing the proportion of green gas in the network to 100%.

A new CEO is recruited from 1 January 2023 with a track-record of 5X growth in 5 years and he is hired to lead the new growth journey for the company based on the current platform but with ambitions outside the current core products and geographies. Extensive consultancy analysis has already been prepared to identify relevant growth areas. The growth areas will be within clean & local energy solutions for heavy transport and industries including data centres. Initial focus will be within our initial areas of Stockholm with expansion to the rest of Sweden and eventually Scandinavia.

The workplace is Solna, Stockholm with flexible work location Monday and Friday – and in the office Tuesday to Thursday.
