Join our Dragons’ Den 2021 competition

Hello everyone!

My name is Carl and I’m part of Klarna’s Onboarding team, responsible for our Check-in program where we onboard all new colleagues into the company by challenging and empowering our new joiners to reach their full potential unreasonably quick.

Once a year, our team organizes a Dragons’ Den competition for our newest hires. The idea is based on the TV show format Dragons’ Den where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to investors who then decide if they want to invest in the idea or not. For Klarna’s competition, the investors are our very own Chief Officers, including our CEO and Co-founder Sebastian Siemiatkowski.

Tell us what we need to do next

The Dragons’ Den competition gives you as a new hire the perfect opportunity to tell our CXO team what Klarna should do next. And it’s not just a game. You identify a real problem, recruit your internal team, get coached by other employees and pitch your solution to the investors, our CXOs.

Our culture premiers trying and failing rather than clinging on to the status quo. Working at Klarna means being put in the driver’s seat of your own development as well as influencing the direction of the company with your skills and knowledge. And you’ll jump right into it by joining this competition.

‘Show you’re the one that can be trusted for big things’

Here’s what previous Klarna Dragon’s Den participants have said about the opportunity;

“This is a great opportunity to show your strength and get to know how Klarna actually works. Not to mention it’s an amazing way to be in the spotlight and show you’re the one that can be trusted for big things. I believe it is a fantastic opportunity for anyone ambitious and want to move forward on a fast track”.

“This Dragons’ Den competition is real fun. Putting an idea together and seeing someone from commercial in LA, a Brazilian engineer, a Swedish analyst and a French org developer in Stockholm suddenly form a team, click, share experience and develop the idea is an amazing feeling. Unique, as Klarna makes those people meet and work together.”

What do you think Klarna should do next? Join us now to take part in our next very own Dragons’ Den competition.
