Performance and Reliability Engineer

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.

As Performance and Reliability Engineer at Klarna, you will be part of building the future of automated performance testing.

Do you want to remove the manual, time consuming, automation-unfriendly performance testing from the process? Do you want to be part of automating test generation, test execution, test results analysis
and moving it into the development process and directly providing actionable results to developers?

What we do

  • Own our services end to end. Decide how best to build, test, deploy and monitor.
  • Work with large scale, highly available and resilient modern financial systems.
  • Be an integral part of a team, in addition to its culture and ways of working. Common practices include agile methodologies, pair and mob programming.
  • Work with automated deployment enabling code release multiple times a day.
  • Succeed, fail, and learn together with other talented people. 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.
  • Work with modern tools and languages that excite you.

You'll get the chance to work with

Culture - You'll have an opportunity to work with people from all over the world in our English speaking office in Stockholm/Berlin city centre.

Relocation - We can offer full relocation support to Berlin for senior candidates. Remote work is not something we can accommodate.

We know diverse teams are strong teams, so we welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our teams include women, men, mothers, fathers, the self-taught, the college-educated, and people from all over the world.
