  • Technical knowledge on topics such as packaging, waste, energy, and natural resources, as well as responsible sourcing.
  • A strategic thinker, with the ability to influence senior leaders.

Personal characteristics:

  • Structured, independent, and take responsibility.
  • Good mood, and solution-oriented.
  • Like to have a varied working day.
  • We’re looking for people who love using “we” instead of “I” and are strong team players.


  • Festival pass.
  • Unique work experience.
  • A network of awesome people.
  • Reasonable expenses paid.
  • Free coffee.

We also strive for that great balance of being a team that feels like a family. That means we share feedback regularly, support each other’s self-improvement efforts, and take mistakes as opportunities to learn together. Joining Ekstremsportveko is an opportunity to border on an organization with massive scope for impact, backed by an engaged leadership team driven by passion and purpose.

If this is you or someone you know, we would love to hear from you!
