You will be the driving force in our most complex projects, keeping a holistic mindset, challenging and cooperating with different stakeholders across the company to provide your team with what they need to deliver the best results. You will also be a key player in co-creating project management tools and practices and contribute actively to a more project oriented culture at Oatly.
