About Klarna

We make shopping smoooth. Our aim is to become the world’s favorite way to shop and bring flexible healthy financial services to consumers.

Job Description

We are on a mission to liberate humanity from all the meaningless time spent managing their purchases and finances, so they can do more of what they love. Klarna was founded on a bold belief: that people are capable of achieving the extraordinary, even when faced with the seemingly impossible. Our journey has been one of continuous learning, facing immense challenges head-on, dedicating countless hours of hard work, and never wavering in our commitment or resilience - and now we are looking for individuals to join us on our journey and contribute to our mission.

As a Klarna Legal Problem Solver, you will be part of a global and cross-functional team of colleagues from other competences such as product, analytics, business development, design, marketing, etc. This team is assigned to a problem space and tasked with generating solutions/products. You will solve complex legal problems involving multiple jurisdictions, consumers, partners, and authorities. Your challenge is to merge stakeholders’ expectations and legal requirements into simple and innovative legal products, processes, or contracts. You will be the first responder for any legal matter on your team. You should always first ask yourself, “What’s best for the company? Couldn’t we do it in another better way instead?” Your expertise and your never ending desire to learn more will drive your professional development. You are in the driving seat!

What you'll get to do:

  • Support our Nordic, Central and Eastern European sales teams in building and maintaining partnerships with our merchants and other partners by supporting in contract negotiations.
  • Provide problem-solving legal advice relating to, amongst other areas, disputes, the GDPR, financial regulation and marketing law.
  • Providing commercial advice to the business in connection with contract negotiations.

You should have:

  • Professional experience as a lawyer (4 - 10 years) from a top tier law firm, the financial sector, telecom, the IT industry, or any other regulated industry.
  • Preferably a German law degree, but not a must as long as you are comfortable negotiating and drafting agreements in German.
  • Experience in negotiating commercial contracts.
  • Solid interest in the disruptive payment industry and a willingness to learn rather than focus on a specific area of law.
  • Proven ability to solve problems in a global environment.
  • Working proficiency and communication skills in verbal and written English and German.

Diversity & Community - With our diversity of skills, perspectives and backgrounds, we can create, innovate, and disrupt like no other. Diversity is part of who we are, and essential to our success.

Ownership & Impact - Here, every voice matters. We’re organized into hundreds of small teams, each run like a start-up, focused on their own problem-space.

Trust & Collaboration - Successes and failures are won together at Klarna in a melting pot of teams. Win, lose, and learn, we’re on this path together.If you love what you do, you should love where you do it. We appreciate that everyone’s different and has their own preferences of where and how to work. We genuinely believe in the power of regular face-to-face interactions in building close connections with our teams, but we also strongly believe people can work effectively remotely. This means that combining both is the key to success. At Klarna, You can choose between working from the office, remotely within your employment country, or even outside of it for up to 20 working days per year. Flex it up!  

Challenges & Rewards - We take a very Swedish approach to benefits. Support for parents, health and wellness perks—we’ve got you covered.
