What you will do

At Klarna, Customers are our obsession. From innovative products like our Consumer Mobile App or Merchant Portal, to our game changing Klarna Checkout, Klarna payment methods, and banking solutions, we build products with the customer in mind.

Product Managers are at the heart of this obsession, always solving challenges that customers are facing or delighting them with products they didn’t know they needed. One of the main reasons that Klarna is able to bring innovative payment and banking solutions to its customers is because of the collaborate work that Product Managers lead with Engineering, Product Design, Analytics, Business Development and Support teams.

A Klarna Product Manager lives in the tension between strategic thinking and tactical execution, while understanding the benefit of iterating quickly and thinking globally.
