  • Assure quality and coherency in all of Klarna engineering’s communication efforts - making the communication aligned and following a red thread.
  • Request and order assets from internal and external stakeholders/agencies. This includes creating communications briefs with problem definitions, clear objectives and targets.

  • Experience in working with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, WordPress, Google suites, Slack, and occasionally social media.
  • Familiarity with the global media market (focus on English speaking countries though role requires global media monitoring)
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and fluid environment with ability to adapt.
  • Proactive and hands-on by nature, able to come up with new thinking that adds value and innovation to the work we do.
