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.
Our engineers make some of the most significant decisions for the company and we are looking for bold, open, and curious developers.
Want to be part of the change? We're expanding a team that is pivotal in simplifying, streamlining, and scaling payments and collections through our extensive network of partner banks.

  • Propose and drive the changes to improve the system design as well as the tooling for our bank operations teams, which manually handles the exceptional cases
  • Learn and share knowledge and maintain the communications with stakeholders within and outside of the team
  • Ensure our team serves as a simple and reliable interface between Klarna and partner banks

Who You Are:
