Are you the next management trainee to Gelato’s CEO?

Gelato is searching for a high-potential, reliable, and organized management trainee to follow our Founder & CEO. We are growing exponentially and recently raised $240m from Insight Partners, Softbank, funds managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, and existing investors. You will work close to the leadership team that consists of people with experience from Amazon, Bain & Company, Ebay, Skype, Tele2, and many other world-class tech companies. Every day will be different.

About Gelato

We believe that Gelato is positioned to redefine manufacturing as we know it. Our vision is bold and global: empower creators and ecommerce stores to reach any person on our planet with customized items overnight. This vision will likely take us decades to fulfill but is an important reason for why we come to work every morning.

We do not own any fixed assets. We are a software company that connects hundreds of production and distribution partners across our planet. We already operate in 33 countries with local production and can reach more than 5 billion people with customized products within days.

Production technology is evolving rapidly. With 3D printing, we are preparing for the next revolution of on-demand production. Gelato will eventually be able to produce any product locally. Our vision will take time to reach, but imagine what bringing manufacturing close to you could mean when it comes to reducing carbon emission and protecting our planet.

What you’ll be doing

Working closely with the founder & CEO and the Gelato leadership team, you will support the day-to-day activities of the CEO, driving the business and implementing change, interacting with senior leaders and with external stakeholders, including customers, strategic partners, and investors. You will be at the core of the strategic agenda, participating in strategy meetings, board meetings, contributing to the preparation materials and following up on decisions. You will also gain hands-on operational experience across all functions, for example supporting customer service, making business cases, leading projects and product releases. In other words, you will get a unique education of entrepreneurship and deep insight into what it means to build, lead and “blitzscale” a global technology company that is growing exponentially.

When your trainee year is finished we work together and find the next leadership role in Gelato.

Who you are

To be successful as a Management Trainee, you should have attention to details and promptly identify problems coupled with solutions. Candidates should showcase great leadership abilities, grit, tenacity, strong interpersonal skills, as well as relentless energy in problem-solving.

We are looking for a person who is curious, has an interest in business, people, and the global community, and is able to get acquainted with new situations quickly. You should be self-driven and actively seek to take part in something that is probably best described as climbing Mount Everest over and over again. You not only enjoy challenges but you actively search for them. You have exceptional analytical skills.

You have world-class academic background, preferably within business/economics and/or engineering. You have worked 1-5 years in a company that is known to represent the mindset of olympic gold medalists. International experience, work experience alongside studies or other interesting extracurricular engagements are meriting.

We would like to see evidence of the following when reviewing your background:

  • 1-3 years of work experience from a leading global company
  • Master’s degree and/or MBA in business, economics from a leading institution
  • A creative and analytical mindset
  • A positive attitude and never-ending appetite for learning more
  • Resilience, drive and ability to thrive in an entrepreneurial environment
  • Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal skills
  • Superb attention to detail
  • A team player
  • Excellent time management skills

What we offer

By joining Gelato, you will be part of one of the fastest-growing tech companies in Europe. You will be based in Oslo (HQ) but operate in a truly international setting. The role has high internal visibility and you will work closely with our leadership team, investors, board members, and senior managers.

This role will build a strong platform for taking on exciting tasks within Gelato during the traineeship, but also after.

Gelato offers a very competitive salary and as we want you to think as an owner, we will also give you the chance to become an investor in Gelato.

If you’re excited with our company’s vision and want to start becoming one of our future leaders, we’d like to hear from you.
