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.
At Klarna we process transactions from millions of users, serve more than 12.000 merchants, and handle hundreds of millions of Euros. 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 truly great place to work!
We want to grow even more and are looking for great developers regardless of programming language. We expect you to be a top-notch developer and a fast learner. At Klarna you will have the opportunity to take on challenges in areas ranging from risk analysis, process optimization to large-scale web development.
What we offer you:
- 24/7 service with no downtime for upgrades
- 12 000 e-stores in 7 countries
- 2.5 million customers in Sweden only
As a Senior Developer, we expect you to be able to handle systems which have high demands on performance and scalability. Experience from banking systems or other transaction intense systems is a plus. We need senior developers with several years of experience and expertise in the environment that we operate.
- At least 10 years of experience in a TDD environment
- Strong will to success
- Programming as one of your interests
Technologies and methodologies we use:
- Machine learning
- Hot code loading
- NoSQL (Riak, Mnesia), PostgreSQL
- Facebook API
The challenges Klarna is currently facing:
- Scaling businesses that can grow with Klarna
- Expand to several new countries
- Safer and more simple identification of buyers
- Data mining
- Safer and faster connection with banks and credit suppliers
- Invention of new customer features
