Are you an IT professional eager to use your skills to accelerate the world’s transition to renewable energy sources?

Fantastic, welcome to Alight! We're an entrepreneurial scale-up driven by a strong purpose: to kick carbon off the grid by helping businesses save money with solar from day 1. As one of Europe's largest solar independent power producers, our IT systems are a critical part of the energy infrastructure.

This means that you, as our first IT Manager, will play a key role in ensuring a high level of security and seamless operation across our computer systems. This is an opportunity for you to create a true impact and build a leading IT department from the ground up. We can't wait to meet you!

Your impact

As our first IT Manager, you will have the unique opportunity to establish and shape our IT department. As our core expert in the field, you will not only be responsible for hands-on execution, maintenance, and support but also play a pivotal role in strategically developing our IT function for the long term. With time, we anticipate that you will be responsible for leading and growing a team of talented IT professionals.


  • Shape the strategy and way of working with IT at Alight, setting the stage for a robust IT department
  • Ensure compliance with business requirements by establishing a comprehensive cybersecurity policy and promoting IT governance across the organization
  • Evaluate and enhance existing third-party vendors and software/hardware solutions to streamline operations, increase efficiency, and maintain a high level of security
  • Optimize our workspaces, including client devices, office hardware/software solutions, firewalls, and SaaS applications, to facilitate effective communication in a remote work environment
  • Provide remote support to our distributed workforce across Europe, enabling seamless operations and troubleshooting

    We’re looking for you

    To be a good fit for this role, we believe that you are an experienced IT professional who thrives in working with a broad set of responsibilities, from strategy to hands-on execution. Most likely, you have worked in a fast-paced IT organization before and are proud of your contribution in making that IT department excel.

    You might be an IT Manager today, but you could also be an IT professional with a desire to take the next step. What matters the most to us is your attitude and motivation to build a top-notch IT department.


    • At least 3 years of experience working as an IT professional, preferably in a fast-paced environment, managing a broad set of responsibilities
    • Experience in establishing/updating IT policies, including cyber security policies
    • Hands-on experience with computer networks, network administration, and network installation
    • Experience in hardware and software asset management
    • An empathic mindset and willingness to provide IT support to your colleagues across Europe
    • Ability to work on-site at our office in central Stockholm (hybrid-remote)
    • Fluency in English, as Alight is an international company and our team is from all over the world

    What's in it for you

    You will be part of an entrepreneurial scale-up in a flat, coaching, and knowledge-driven culture with a high degree of autonomy and accountability. Ever since we started, we've defined ourselves as a diverse company with global reach, which means that remote and flexible work is how we operate and our people are at the center of everything.


    • At Alight, we know the benefits that follow a diverse team, hence we’re looking broadly for talent!
    • Our largest hubs are in Stockholm and Madrid, but our staff is spread across Europe, and our hybrid ways of working provide everyone with a fully flexible work setup
    • We have a fun office vibe with regular team dinners, breakfasts and AWs, and sports activities. For example, we have a session with a running coach every Tuesday, and other ad hoc sports activities organized by employees, always paid for by the company
    • Quarterly company events where we gather our remote team for a few days. This always includes some fun activities such as sailing, skiing etc.
    • Flexible working hours and full flexibility to decide when to work remotely/at the office

    Sounds like a fit? Apply today!
