The year was 2005 and e-commerce had long been precarious. With an idea to offer secure and simple payment solutions, Klarna was founded that same year. Six years have passed and we have grown to an ambitious and creative company of 600 employees. We have been awarded Company of the Year in -07 (bragging), increased our turnover by 13 570 % (statistics) and managed to become the Nordic market leader (facts). Klarna is partly owned by Sequoia Capital, DST Global and General Atlantic - companies that have seen the same potential in Google, Facebook and Twitter as they do in us. We think that is a good start.
At the Engineering department we are about 100 Engineers, and this is only the beginning of our journey of building the best Engineering Department in the world. We are therefore always keeping an eye out for talented and highly motivated people. We believe in empowering our employees, it is up to you how much you would like to grow. Our Engineering department is divided in multiple small start-up clusters. As a member of one of these start-ups you will be involved in the complete product development cycle - from concept to execution. We are a fast paced organization with a strong commitment to quality and agile methodologies.
Klarna is expanding further and we need more developers who can take our proprietary systems to new heights - a system that is the essence of a financial business that serves millions of consumers around the north European region. Our system is mainly written in Erlang, which makes us quite unique. To that, add all the skilled people that work here and the products we build and you get a truly great place to work!
