At Klarna, I work with brilliant colleagues.

Communications Manager - I write and communicate stories about Klarna as a company, our products, and customer insights.

My irregular path.

Before joining Klarna I worked as a journalist and editor at Resumé, Sweden’s biggest trade magazine for marketing and media. But after almost 8 years at the magazine, I wanted to broaden my horizons and try something different. Klarna felt like the perfect, and somewhat unexpected, next step. My first task was producing B2B content for small and medium-sized retailers, which quickly developed into a larger editorial team for which I became the Accountable Lead. But at Klarna, change comes from all directions and an overhaul of our B2B organization prompted a pivot for me. I moved into the Communications competence from Marketing and now work on producing editorial content for our Extra O blogs and Global News hub team. Online retail and payments are going through a huge transformation right now, and I get to report on how Klarna is rising to meet new expectations and implementing innovation.

Working at Klarna.

I chose Klarna because I wanted to work at a place where you are a part of shaping the future, and Klarna certainly fits that description when it comes to shopping, payments, and banking. These two years have been a crash course in how to work in an international and fast-paced environment. I've had the privilege to work with a lot of brilliant colleagues with different competences and backgrounds. It’s been a learning curve of immense value.

Something I’m unreasonably passionate about.

It might be a bit of a cliché, but I'm passionate about football and cars. I’m devoted to Djurgårdens IF and my vehicle of choice is a 1994 Mercedes-Benz that spends most of its time at the mechanic. My girlfriend and I also have a miniature poodle called Mozart who fills our lives with joy.

A day in my life.

AMPMEvening
Grab a coffee to get going and to stay alert ahead of another busy day.Attend a couple of syncs to keep updated on any new product releases or changes.I might hit the gym or go to football practice with the amateur team that I play in.
Stand-up meeting at 9 where we cover different topics and what should be done during the day.Clear inbox of any unread messages.Meet friends for an afterwork.
I start working on a new blog post or publish something that we have in the pipeline.Deliver any work that is nearing deadline.Being a dog owner, I'm often taking walks around the neighborhood with a podcast in my ears.

3 takes on Klarna.

My favorite Leadership Principle is...

Deliver results because that's what it's all about in the end. I love seeing progress and that the things I'm doing have an impact.

The best task of the day is ..

to create something that I'm proud of. It doesn't have to be something big. A great blog post or a concept that turns out really well is very satisfying.

I’d describe my team as...

a group of very talented and smart people that are working together to create world-class communication.
