Product Director

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 Product Directors based in Stockholm or Berlin, 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.

We need great Product leaders for different types of problem spaces. It can be anything from customer facing roles for our Klarna App, or Purchase Experience, to our Payment Methods, or it can be merchant facing like our game changing Klarna Checkout or Merchant Portal. We also need great Product leaders for our internal platforms that support many internal teams.

  • You may also be hands-on leading a cross-functional team if that's needed
  • Ultimately, you are responsible for a valuable and viable product
  • You set an inspiring vision, strategy and metrics for your product on which you create buy-in and alignment throughout the organization (especially your own group)
  • You understand markets, competition, and user requirements in depth
  • You have a constant and dedicated focus on your customers
  • You own the budget and PnL for your product

We’d love to meet someone with…

  • A background building consumer products, where you have taken a product from concept to launch, driving product vision, defining go-to-market strategy, creating product roadmaps, driving UX decisions, and steering technical implementation discussions
  • Experience in leading through context and not control where you are pushing decisions down to the teams in your group 
  • Deep technical understanding and able to drive technical discussions with teams 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills (in English)
