IKEA of Sweden AB (IoS) based in Älmhult, develops and makes the IKEA range available to stores and customers all over the world. Our aim is to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them.

In reality, our brief is actually much broader than mere product development. It is to create conditions for the established store to grow its sales and to
strengthen its relationship with its customers and prospects through the development, sourcing, supply and steering of a unique, competitive and efficient range.
Swedish, or simply IKEA?
We often say that it is the product range that gives IKEA its identity. In Scandinavia that means our range is and should be regarded as typically IKEA whereas in other countries it is regarded as typically Swedish.

In terms of scope, we design for the total home environment, in order to offer furnishings and fittings for every part of the home, both in- and out of doors. Quality and function are important but should not take priority over the consumer's needs. Similarly, price should never compromise function and technical quality. Our main processes start and end with the customer. They are defined by customer needs and should lead to customer success.

Please note that product development is located in Älmhult/Sweden. This means all the following positions are only available in Sweden.
