Klarna AB

Partner Marketing Manager

Klarna was founded in Stockholm in 2005 with the idea to simplify buying. Today, we're one of Europe’s fastest growing companies. In 2014 we joined forces with SOFORT and formed Klarna Group, the leading European payment provider.
Klarna Group has more than 1,400 employees and is active on 18 markets. We serve 45 million consumers and work with 65,000 merchants. Our goal is to become the world’s favorite way to buy.

Founded in Stockholm in 2005, Klarna is one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, and offers safe and easy-to-use payment solutions to e-stores. At the core of Klarna’s services is the concept of after delivery payment, which lets buyers receive ordered goods before any payment is due. At the same time, Klarna assumes the credit and fraud risk so that retailers can rest assured they will receive their money.

Klarna is building one of the world’s strongest brands in the payments industry and our Marketing department will play a key role in this effort: shaping and spreading our message about simple online buying to merchants and consumers across the globe.
