Klarna was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 2005. Since then we've changed the banking industry forever. And now we're creating the world's smoothest shopping experience. We serve over 90 million consumers worldwide, and partner with 250,000 merchants – with a new merchant joining us every 8 minutes. Including some of the world's leading brands, such as H&M, ASOS, IKEA, Adidas, Samsung and Lufthansa. Our offices are spread over 17 different markets, hosted by 4000+ employees from 100+ nationalities.
Klarna is the place where change is happening. Fast.
We are in a scaleup phase with a foundation in place while still being formable. Our focus is moving from payments to shopping. From invoices to inspiration. Having 90 million shoppers and 250K+ retailers is great, but we are nowhere near done.
The challenge ahead is to lift the product and all aspects of design to even higher levels. We’re not just trying to raise the bar. We want to be the bar. The next step is to team up with a VP of Design / Competence Owner who is obsessed with our customers and smoooth solutions. Someone who wants to have a real impact on design at Klarna and beyond.
Design Competence - we make Klarna stand out
Klarna is dedicated to enhancing and redefining the world’s smooothest shopping experience. We are a competence staffed by amazing people with a range of skills to best meet Klarna’s needs.
We are not simply defined. We break into pop culture by making award-winning campaigns. We refine and implement Klarna’s voice. We make products simple and easy to interact with.
The purpose of the Competence
The overarching purpose of our competences is to ensure that all teams at Klarna have the right talent with the right capabilities to truly create cutting-edge solutions. The competences make it possible to develop and deploy these highly skilled people from different fields across the organization. This is done through coaching, training, and knowledge sharing, as well as with established tools, standards, and processes.
