Klarna was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 2005. Since then we've changed the banking industry forever. And now we're creating the world's smoothest shopping experience. We serve over 90 million consumers worldwide, and partner with 200,000 merchants – with a new merchant joining us every 8 minutes. Including some of the world's leading brands, such as H&M, ASOS, IKEA, Adidas, Samsung and Lufthansa. Our offices are spread over 17 different markets, hosted by 3500+ employees from 90 nationalities.
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.
