Product Advisor – Contour Design Norway

On behalf of Contour Design, we are looking for an ambitious and result-focused Product Advisor who will get a key role in advising public and private companies in ergonomic products in Norway.

About Contour Design
Founded in 1995 Contour Design develops and sells ergonomic computer mouse devices that allow users to work safely on their computers without the risk of pain or strain. Contour, which sells and markets the products in Europe and US is headquartered in Ballerup, Denmark.

Contour has been the market leader in the industry since the launch of their first ergonomic mouse. Their award-winning mouse - RollerMouse Red - is the result of many years of targeted research, development and design. Over the years, Contour has managed to shift the perception of ergonomic mouse devices as a tool for the few, to a tool for anyone who wants to prevent injuries as a result of working in front of the computer. Thus, it is no longer solely a question of symptom treatment, but the desire for greater profits and efficiency in everyday life that drives the investment in ergonomic mouse devices.

Contour also has partnerships with distributors and dealers of ergonomic office equipment in selected countries e.g., Benelux, Germany, France, United Kingdom, and the Nordics.

Since 2021, Polaris Private Equity has had a majority stake in Contour. Polaris is a Nordic public limited company that invests in companies with high growth potential.
