Klarna makes shopping smoooth. And we do it with flair because shopping is fun. Every day, we help customers, businesses, and partners explore just how smoooth the modern shopping experience can be.
It means we’re constantly changing the game. Always trying out new things. And we encourage our people to do the same. To grow. To develop. Because we don’t believe roles have to stay fixed. Instead we inspire our people to take an irregular career path. As a company of 350 dynamic start-ups, our whole business is built for it. So once you’re in, there’s no telling what will happen next.
Klarna is a very exciting company! That applies to tax matters as well. At Klarna you will learn more about taxes and business than you have ever done before and we can guarantee you a fantastic learning journey where your skills and experience will have a direct impact on the way we deal with taxes on a global level and of course also in the US.
Given our increased presence in the US we are looking for a person who can help us navigate the US tax landscape. You will have full responsibility for US tax and work closely with the US CFO based in NYC and our accounting team based in Columbus, Ohio. You will be part of and work closely with the global tax team based in Stockholm.
You will join an extremely fast paced company with a strong ambition to be a first mover, not only commercially but also in terms of how we work with taxes. You will be the only tax person on the ground in the US, thus it is important that you have a broad knowledge of US tax and are used to taking ownership even when things are moving in Mach 2. You will also need to be very proactive and able to manage several high-stakes matters at the same time.
