Who we are
Klarna’s mission is to free people from all the meaningless time spent managing money and purchases, so they can do more of what they love. Every day at Klarna we help consumers, merchants, and partners to explore just how smoooth the modern purchase experience can be. Our position at the crossroads of payments, consumer financing, ecommerce and banking means we are uniquely positioned to do this. There is no label for what we do.
Klarna was born in Stockholm in 2005 and today has 2500 employees working across Europe and the US. We currently serve 60 million consumers, work together with 130,000 merchants and process more than a million payment transactions a day. We are growing at 40% year on year and our investors include Visa, Atomico, Sequoia Capital, Permira and Bestseller group/ Anders Holsch Povlsen. We have strong partnerships with some of the world’s leading brands, such as ASOS, IKEA, Adidas, Zara, Lufthansa and Spotify.
In order to continue building out-of-the-box functionality that makes purchasing and personal finance management time-saving and intuitive, Klarna launched “KlarnAI”: an R&D group with the goal of leveraging machine learning and algorithms to enhance user experience. We work on developing machine intelligence to assist end users with personalisation, organisation, and (our current focus!) navigating the web to perform complex tasks.
Our team members come from varied backgrounds in research and software engineering and work together on diverse tasks: from studying data and sharing research papers, to iterating on prototypes, to building infrastructure for obtaining/storing data and running experiments. We are looking for a seasoned developer to take on a leading role in infrastructure projects, and to act as an informal software development mentor to her or his colleagues.
