Compliance Specialist

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.

Do you want to be part of an international, growing Compliance team, working for one of Europe’s largest FinTech/disrupter-banks, that wants to revolutionize the financial industry? Klarna is looking for new members to strengthen the Compliance Team. We are looking for Compliance Specialists located in Stockholm, Sweden and Berlin or Munich, Germany.

Specific experience is desirable with: 
* payment services and systems
* consumer credit, financing and lending
* financial crime risk (including AML/CTF, ABC and fraud) and/or PSDII & open banking – considered highly qualifying
* experience with FinTech firms – also considered advantageous. 

Furthermore, you need to have excellent English language skills for any location; you additionally need to have good German language skills if based in Berlin or Munich. Swedish language skills are beneficial. 

You will be part of the Compliance Team, so it is important that you have the ability to prioritize and be comfortable with working independently, but also with others in the team and around the business.
