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 5000+ employees from 100+ nationalities.

Our Global Trust Center is rapidly growing and we are looking for new talent to join our Security Operation Center (SOC) team. If your background is within Managed Security Services, Inhouse SOC or Computer Incident Response Team we will offer you an environment that challenges the status quo and builds something different.

Our dedicated team has two focus areas; Threat Monitoring & Detection and Incident Response, with support from our Cyber Threat Intel procedure. The SOC team tries to use the best-of-breed tools for monitoring and detection as well as make the best use of traditional security platforms. With a focus on automation and applying analytics to our signals, we have an objective to be highly efficient in our operations with very few false positives.

Our goal is to improve our capabilities in cyber response, to develop the most effective ways of evaluating and triaging security events and invoking appropriate response plans to events.  We work in a continuously evolving business environment, therefore the technologies and processes we use are continuously changing as well. This means that this role requires people with great minds and brilliant ideas able and willing to challenge the traditional ways of operating a SOC function and try out new things.
