Big Crowd Factory is looking for its next superstar to help us bring amazing outdoor cinemas to the people. We are a company that has gone from zero to hero since the pandemic. In 2022 we arranged outdoor cinemas in five cities for a total of 30 000 visitors (you can see our impact report here), and for 2023 we aim even higher - targeting the major cities in Sweden with days filled with DJs, live music, food, and outdoor cinemas. Summer days people never forget.

An important role with big impact and responsibility - you will be our key person for keeping our team and business world-class.

Your tasks and responsibility will stretch along the full year, from planning and setting budgets and strategy to the nitty-gritty details of our operations. A chance to set a personal flair to our company.
