Partner Marketing
Klarna’s marketing department is working tirelessly to build one of the world's strongest brands. We’re now looking for a Partner Marketing Manager to help us to strengthen our market leadership position. You’ll play a key role in this effort, working through our partnership channels to spread the word about how incredibly smoooth the Klarna experience is.

Who you are
For you to be a successful Partner Marketing Manager, we believe we have to dissect that title into two parts: you need to be strong with partner management, but obviously need to be a marketer at heart (and mind). You will use your creativity to explore opportunities to market Klarna in an independent and partner role.

What you will do

  • Work closely with Platforms & Payment Service Providers (PSP) with the aim of building and nurturing durable marketing relationships with our partners 
  • You own the co-marketing agenda and will drive the planning and execution of activities such a joint events, webinars, reference cases, blog posts, whitepapers, newsletters, etc. 
  • Lead the marketing launches of new partnerships 
  • You align with the Klarna Global & Regional marketing teams and are responsible for the partner marketing strategy locally
  • You manage the partner marketing budget and keep senior stakeholders updated on performance and spending 
  • Drive engagement with our partners through events 

You should have

  • Fluent skills in Dutch. Professional working proficiency English, written and verbal. Good understanding of the French language would be a plus. 
  • Minimum 3 years of relevant marketing and/or external-client facing roles, budget management, event planning and CRM management. 
  • Bachelor’s degree required, preferably in a relevant field (e.g. marketing, business, communications).
  • Must be team oriented and highly resourceful - ‘Can do’ and ‘Willing to do what it takes’ attitude
  • Comfortable interacting with and managing relationships with senior stakeholders at merchant partners

You might also have

  • You are ruthless in delivering results on time and with the highest standards
  • Account/partner management experience is preferred.
  • Ecommerce or payments experience is preferred; ideal candidate has work experience within the PSP, SaaS or other major ecommerce ecosystems.
At the end of the day, we can be flexible around a lot of qualifications, but you must have an entrepreneurial mindset and be extremely independent; we’re looking for a true self-starter. You’ll have the opportunity to take true ownership of your role and function in a startup-like environment, but have the support of an established global brand.

We offer you a chance to be part of changing the way the world buys online and the opportunity to be part of shaping that message. You will work with some of the best and brightest minds in the ecommerce industry and you will have the chance to make an impact on Klarna’s future. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, odds are that we are as excited to talk to you as you are to talk to us.
