Delivery Lead - Stockholm
Stockholm, Sweden /
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 strives to become the world’s favourite way to shop and buy. Online shopping, payments, and banking are rapidly changing and at Klarna we are re-imagining how they all play together in our customers’ lives. We are obsessed about making the life of millions of consumers more convenient, simple, and delightful. We are looking for Delivery Leads who can help us re-imagine this future and make it a reality. Klarna is the highest valued Fintech company in Europe, and we believe that our journey has just begun.
At Klarna we are focused on one thing more than anything else - our customers. From innovative consumer products like the Klarna App, Card, or flexible Payment Methods, to business offerings such as the Klarna Checkout or the merchant portal. We believe that customers are loyal to experience and being a customer-obsessed company, like Klarna, requires a constant and dedicated focus on our customers.
Who you are.
We are looking for people who are inspired and committed to delivering products that solve real customer problems. Working at Klarna is about innovation and speed, leadership, and disruption. We want to be able to find great new ideas and put them to work, yesterday.
Perhaps you are a delivery lead professional already, or a technical project manager with the exceptional talent of leading in complex, large scale, and agile environments? Possibly you are a magnificent optimizer? You could come from a diversity of backgrounds, such as engineering manager, entrepreneurship, product-centric roles, or a scrum master role. Or possibly a dexterous agile coach with a history as a developer.
What’s important is that you have a desire to learn more, move beyond your comfort zone, and push boundaries.
Your strong evidence of influence, leadership, and delivery is most likely already known from previous work in complex initiatives using Agile practices. You thrive on taking a holistic view of the architecture and deep dive into technical details. You see problems as opportunities and take the initiative to make changes and improvements. You will play an important role in taking Klarna to the next level - thus, you should desire to go above and beyond to deliver and grow as an individual.
Our working language is English, so we welcome applicants from all over the world.
What we offer you.
Delivery lead is all about driving and delivering our most complex and challenging cross-team engineering initiatives that directly link to Klarna’s strategy from inception into production.
The work will require working cross-functionally and collaboratively with Engineering, Product, Operations, and Infrastructure teams to plan, choreograph and coordinate large software systems with high quality, and at incredible speed. You will know our team’s technologies and dependencies and have their backs by making these transparent across teams. You will have an eagle eye for ensuring dependent teams are not broken by upstream changes. On a daily basis, you will provide direction and guidance of scaled agile practices across multiple teams and relentlessly focus on improving and maintaining deliveries across teams.
You will also be part of our Delivery lead competence, a group of professionals striving towards speed and continuous improvement. Together we create an open and collaborative environment where you, as a Delivery lead, can upskill and grow your competence.
Here at Klarna, you aren’t recruited for a specific role, but rather for your competence, skill-set, and potential. That means you might work independently, in a team or you can be called upon from time to time for different assignments around Klarna. What we promise you is a fast pace, challenging problems, and collaboration with many brilliant colleagues.
Be ready for change, be ready to learn, and be ready to challenge the product development to excel. Read more about our Leadership Principles here.
Accelerator. Dexterous. Tactical. Delivery lead.
