Senior Software Engineer (DevOps & Automation)

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.

Want to be part of the change? We're expanding several of our engineering teams!

What you'll get to do

Developer Services' goal is to enable Klarna’s engineers to build features at scale with the security and reliability that you should expect from a modern bank. We understand that the best way to do this is to empower Klarna’s engineers by providing great tooling and services to support best practices with a minimal amount of effort. We believe that the best solutions involve not just automation or configuration as code but also a deep understanding of how a developer might want things to work.

In practical terms this means paying attention to details that make the developer’s experience better and constantly evaluating whether we’ve found the right balance between making a developer’s job easier and enabling them to own their solutions. We are looking for passionate engineering managers to join us.

Some of the things you’ll get to work with

  • Creating libraries and tooling to enable seamless integration of services we use - AWS, Datadog, Sentry, Jenkins, etc.
  • Providing an easy to use and secure platform for container orchestration built on ECS
  • Identifying and building solutions that raise the level of quality across an organisation of 1,000+ engineers - from well-supported build pipelines to best-in-class observability. Ultimately, success here will drive better experiences for our over 10M consumers, 100,000 merchants operating in 14 countries.
  • Automating processes within cloud operations, security configuration, account management, cost optimisations, etc.

You should have

  • Experience with general software development with a passion for automation.
  • Use of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. The tool is less important - experiences and a mindset to try/execute CI/CD pipelines at scale is key.
  • Hands-on experience with containers and related technologies.
  • Experience with cloud providers, preferably AWS.
  • Experience with infrastructure as code tooling and a matching mindset.
What we can offer you

Culture - You'll have an opportunity to work with people from 90+ different countries in our English speaking offices in Stockholm/Berlin city centre.

Learning - We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training, and regular internal technical talks.

Compensation - You’ll receive an attractive salary, pension, and insurance plans, plus we offer all of our employees an opportunity to invest in a RSU program and own a stake of the company. You’ll also receive 30 days annual leave and since we recognise that life is about more than work, we also offer benefits for gym memberships, marathons, and all sorts of activities that promote physical health. We also have generous parental leave (for men and women).

Relocation - We can offer relocation support to Stockholm. 
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 making contributions back to the open source community. You can find some of our work at https://github.com/klarna.
