Our offices are spread over 17 different markets, hosted by 4000+ employees from 100+ nationalities.

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.

Klarna is rapidly growing and we are currently looking for an Information Security Management and Compliance Specialist to join and lead our Information Security team (InfoSec). Our team services the entire Klarna group working out of Stockholm (HQ), Berlin and Linden (Germany). With a banking license and operating in the financial industry in several regions, Klarna is naturally highly regulated. Regardless, we strive to build the smooothest experience. Keeping our customers’ information safe and ensuring their privacy is essential to Klarna, hence our highest commitment to information security.
