Look At This! it's a Full-time job

You're probably not one to take a job just to make your friends jealous, but in case you are, Oatly is hiring a Creative Director - Writer in New York, NY, USA.


Here are the things we’re looking for:
- You’re a craftsperson. You relish digging into the nuts and bolts of the writing and figuring out the perfect, on-brand turn of the phrase. You understand that the writing on the wall murals is just as important as the shelf wobbler in the store and you are obsessed with building a brand world where all the creative pieces fit together
- You’re a big-ideas punk. You’ve often heard from people around you, “that’s a brilliant idea but the client will never have the guts to buy it.” You understand the box and enjoy breaking it. You push yourself, the teams, you are dogged about doing the right thing. You are brave
- You’re a teacher. You know that to build a brand properly you need to bring on and work masterfully with other writers, creators and thinkers. You are able to guide others towards creating incredible work, the best work of their career
- You’re a collaborator. You’re comfortable partnering with a Swedish creative team and other thinkers that are building the brand from many different angles - from sustainability to comms to social good executions. You get that it takes all of us working together to make this whole thing work
- You’re an adult. Sure, you have years under your belt and probably some Cannes Lions or some other of those fancy awards in your reel. But more than that, you not only want the brand to be groundbreaking, but the business to thrive and the world to change so we can actually help the earth. You get the urgency. You understand the stakes. You know this isn’t about any one of us but the change that together we must make in the world

And here’s another list of qualities we think make a good Oatly team member:
- You feel connected to our mission of encouraging health, sustainability, and transparency
- You are a self-starter who doesn’t need direct supervision to motivate you for success we believe strongly in building a culture of individual accountability and ownership and need partners that can embrace that mentality
- You are ready to make your mark in a smaller, growing brand leveraging your experience to deliver amazing results and build an outstanding company
- You have entrepreneurial spirit in that you’re comfortable with ambiguity and are energized by the process of building something lasting from the ground up
- You enjoy sharing your quirkiness and talents with your coworkers

Another bulleted list felt redundant, so we wrote this long sentence with all the ways we sweeten the deal to work with us, like providing generous paid vacation for starters, really great benefits with 100% medical coverage, genuinely great coworkers who want to see the company and each other succeed, a start-up vibe with an established company history, and a fridge full of the best non-dairy alternative in the world for your enjoyment.
