Monday 14th, March 2022



Administration / Secretarial

Klarna is a reputed company based in Stockholm. We are looking for talented professional from the field of Administration / Secretarial to join our team as Executive Assistant.

On our path to becoming the world's favorite way to shop, we’re assembling an unparalleled global talent network, accelerating individual careers, and disrupting entire industries. 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. We’re in search of global talent eager to embrace a hypergrowth atmosphere and defy their own expectations.

Your opportunity

As an Executive Assistant you will be responsible for anticipating, prioritizing, and organizing all activities relating to a senior leaders’ calendar, travel, and general work life. Also, you will be helping out with administrative tasks within the domain, coordinating and administering around all different projects on the table.

What you will do

A normal EA job description would tell you the basics: managing day to day activities, coordinating calendar and travel, planning and scheduling events, maintaining budgets, and completing expense reports. To be clear, you’ll do that….but not just that. We want you to thrive and make a difference. We want you to understand our complex and rapidly changing organization, then add business value by bringing your voice to the table, asking hard questions, and giving insights where others may have missed something. You’ll anticipate needs, solve problems, and help us build and deliver amazing products and solutions. Where others see trees, you see an entire forest. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to be involved in one-off projects and initiatives – generally you should be ready to contribute across the business and provide structure and organization wherever possible.

Who we are looking for

You are probably the most adaptable person in the team you’re at now, you need more challenges to fuel the fire. You’re reliable, accountable, resourceful, work best independently but are a natural leader and collaborator. You don’t forget anything. You remember everything. You have a passion for your work, the people you support, and are always looking to do things more efficiently. You sort out complex tasks with ease; even if you don’t know something, you always know who can fix it. You’re everyone’s confidant who knows when to listen and knows when to solve.
You probably have
    • Previous experience in roles that require service skills and delivery towards short deadlines
    • Experience from administrative & logistic work tasks
    • Proven experience working with sensitive information
    • Excellent G-Suite skills: you are an expert in calendar management and you know when to prioritize
    • Fluency in verbal and written English
It’s nice if you have
    • Strong time management, process management, and productivity skills
    • A strong service mindset and you are a team player
    • A passion for administration done properly: if you see something that needs fixing or support, you don’t hesitate to step in
    • Consistently and proactively suggest and introduce new ways of working to improve effectiveness, you are a team player and you love to work at a high pace.
