At Storytel we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. We offer hundreds of thousands of audiobooks and ebooks to customers in more than 20 markets, with several new markets launching in the coming year. Storytel is Northern Europe's largest audiobook streaming service and we’re now looking for a tester to join the team! Storytel’s vision is to make the world a more empathic and creative place with great stories to be shared and enjoyed anytime, anywhere by anyone. 

About the Team

Our newly formed multi-platforms team will focus on bringing the Storytel experience to platforms that are becoming increasingly important to our customers – wearables, car audio systems, speakers and other devices.
