About Klarna

Klarna was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 2005. Since then we've changed the banking industry forever. And now we're creating the world's smoothest shopping experience. We serve over 90 million consumers worldwide, and partner with 250,000 merchants – with a new merchant joining us every 8 minutes. Including some of the world's leading brands, such as H&M, ASOS, IKEA, Adidas, Samsung and Lufthansa. Our offices are spread over 17 different markets, hosted by 4000+ employees from 100+ nationalities.

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 optimize for quality, flow, fast feedback, focusing 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.
We're hiring a manager to lead the Microsoft Platform Engineering team.
As a manager of the team you are part of designing the future state of the art VDI and RDS solutions for Klarna as well as developing and operating Microsoft based productivity solutions to employees and other teams. Together with your team you will drive the technical customer journey for all our employees.
At Klarna we use the term productivity to describe the portfolio of tools and services that enables Klarna employees to be as productive as possible. This is to emphasize that employee productivity itself is the goal rather than the systems and tools themselves.
The Microsoft Platform engineering team is primarily responsible for innovating, developing and operating our Microsoft-based solutions like Remote desktop services, AD/Azure AD as well as other  managed and self-propelled Microsoft (and sometimes Linux) services, with good support, high level of automation and instant availability, in the cloud (and on-premise, where needed). The team develops and explores solutions using leading edge technologies in close collaboration with other productivity teams.
Supporting Klarnaut's around the world to give the best possible access experience is at heart. We automate what can be automated in order to make all access seamless.
