Engineering Manager - Functional Programming

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; teams working on our Core Banking and Servicing platforms, working with Erlang, Clojure, Scala and Functional Typescript.

What you’ll get to do

  • Inspire, lead, shape and grow a software engineering organization consisting of 3-8 team members.
  • Continue being hands-on with programming and work with large scale, highly available and resilient modern financial systems.
  • Drive continuous improvement focusing on quality in own team and cross teams.
  • Scope and own a problem space, articulate and develop fact based argumentation and present it to senior management or CXOs, develop vision and mission statement.
  • Prioritise and optimise for highest speed in execution.
  • Take calculated risks, anchor with different stakeholders and articulate short and long term consequences.
  • Continuously develop relationships between product, engineering and key stakeholders across all domains.
  • Succeed, fail, and learn together with your team. 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.
  • Play a key role in helping us continue attracting, developing and retaining great engineering talent.
  • Act swiftly to change of direction, re-evaluate priorities and steer the team accordingly.
