DevOps Lead

Klarna makes shopping smoooth. And we do it with flair because shopping is fun. Every day, we help customers, businesses, and partners explore just how smoooth the modern shopping experience can be. 

It means we’re constantly changing the game. Always trying out new things. And we encourage our people to do the same. To grow. To develop. Because we don’t believe roles have to stay fixed. Instead we inspire our people to take an irregular career path. As a company of 350 dynamic start-ups, our whole business is built for it. So once you’re in, there’s no telling what will happen next.

Engineering at Klarna is an inspired, customer focused community, dedicated to crafting solutions that redefine our industry. Working in small, highly collaborative Agile teams, you and your team will have a clear mission and ownership of an important outcome that supports Klarna and our customers. At Klarna we optimise for quality, flow, fast feedback, focussing on end-to-end ownership, continuous improvement, testing, monitoring and experimentation. We aim for teams that are inclusive, helpful, and have a strong sense of ownership for the things they build.

Our engineers make some of the most significant decisions for the company and we are looking for bold, open and curious developers. As a Klarnaut, you’ll be inspired to contribute to the growth of Europe’s most highly valued fintech and your work will reach millions of users.

Engineering is rapidly growing and we are looking for new talent to join our Developer Services team!


What you'll get to do

Our engineers make some of the most significant decisions for the company and we are looking for bold, open and curious developers. As a Klarnaut, you’ll be inspired to contribute to the growth of Europe’s most highly valued fintech and your work will reach millions of users. Developer Services' goal is to enable Klarna’s Engineers to build features at scale, faster and with higher quality than any other company in the industry. We help development teams understand and implement best practice with cloud architecture. 

Things we are currently doing 
- Building tomorrow's Devops infrastructure
- Creating tools to accelerate innovation
- Providing a DevOps platform for all other Klarna teams
- Driving optimization and tooling to improve quality
- Automating processes within cloud operations; security configuration and account management
- Implementing tooling to help development teams use the cloud efficiently.

Who you are

  • We are looking for senior DevOps engineers with leadership experience
  • In your heart, you know there is a better way of doing things. Challenge the old dogmas of slow manual work with miles of documentation and do away with the tick-the-box philosophy of security and governance.

What you will do

  • Own your tools and services end to end. Decide how best to build, test, deploy and monitor.
  • Work with large scale, highly available and resilient modern financial systems.
  • Be an integral part of a team, in addition to its culture and ways of working. Common practices include agile methodologies, pair and mob programming.
  • Work with automated deployment enabling code release multiple times a day.
  • Succeed, fail, and learn together with other talented people. We believe in an environment that provides an opportunity for growth and see education as an outcome of failure that gets us closer to the next breakthrough.

You should have

  • Experience leading software engineering teams in a fast paced, delivery focused environment
  • People management skills
  • A focus on automation and cloud-native thinking.
  • A very strong technical as well as analytical background.
  • Fluency in English, both spoken and written.
  • A proven record of working within distributed infrastructures and experience in Cloud technology.
  • 3+ years working experience with cloud providers like AWS, certification an advantage.
  • Experience with DevOps and CI/CD pipelines

You might also have

  • Hands-on experience in building API-based solutions. 
  • Experience building and managing serverless applications.
  • Jira/Confluence/Insight experience.
  • Programming knowledge in Python.

We know diverse teams are strong teams, so we welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our teams include women, men, mothers, fathers, the self-taught, the college-educated, and people from all over the world.

We also believe in contributing back to the open source community. You can find some of our work here https://github.com/klarna.
