Security Professional - Information Security (ISMS)

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.

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, including; teams working on our core checkout product, payment services, fraud prevention, or improving our billing service and shipping credentials to name a few.

What you'll get to do

  • You will be managing our ISMS documents for security, spreading awareness, measuring the effectiveness, and providing assurance. For new solutions, services, and partners, you will assess the information security risks, do the necessary due diligence, and review evidence to ensure it is all up to par.
  • Our InfoSec team finds new ways to drive awareness. Placing ourselves in our colleagues’ shoes and mindset, we aim to understand how we can best support them. That’s why we have a communication specialist amongst us and utilize many freelance artists to make our messages stick.

To succeed in this role, we think you should have

  • 5+ years of experience as an Information Security Professional with a technical background, managing an ISMS or parts of it
  • Created ISMS documents with a firm understanding of their impact on the organization, especially developers
  • A deep understanding of how information security assurance works in practice, and now you want to optimize and simplify its application
  • Experience with agile development and Linux environments
  • Experience with industry standards for information security and you understand its underlying principles and reasoning
  • Worked with ISAE 3000/3402, SOC 1/2, ISO 27000, ISO 31000 or PCI DSS
  • Experience working with cloud-based technology, preferably Amazon Web Services
  • An understanding of how cloud architectures work and how security can be assured in them
  • Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in Computer Science or a related discipline
  • Written and spoken English and German skills. You can read and understand regulatory requirements and contracts without issues, and you can lead meetings in an efficient way

Our way of working

  • In your heart, you know there is a better way of doing things. Challenge the old dogmas of slow and tedious information security work with miles of documentation and do away with the tick-the-box philosophy of security.
  • You are also grounded and understand that security has to be explained, and that others need assurance that information is secure in the same way that  we require assurance from our partners and service providers.
  • You love to try a new approach, think big, but you can also focus on details. Starting out small, and quickly try out your idea because you really want to see the results now, not in years.
  • You enjoy working with and in teams, and work together to achieve a common goal.
  • You are experienced enough to own and drive projects independently. You can interact with different competences and internal and external stakeholders in a professional way.

  • We also believe in contributing back to the open-source community. You can find some of our work here https://github.com/klarna.

  • Culture - You'll have an opportunity to work with talented people from 90+ different countries in our brand new English speaking offices in Berlin city center.
  • Learning - We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training, and regular internal technical talks.
  • Compensation - You’ll receive an attractive salary, pension, and insurance plans, plus we offer all of our employees an opportunity to invest in a RSU program and own a stake of the company. You’ll also receive 30 days annual leave and since we recognise that life is about more than work, we also offer benefits for gym memberships and discounted lunch through Smunch.

  • Relocation - We can offer relocation support to Berlin.
