Description

Klarna is the largest fintech company in Europe to become a bank and we aim high. We don’t focus on where we’ve come from. What matters to us is where we are going. Klarna’s goal is to improve the online buying experience for our consumers and merchants all over the world. 

Engineering is rapidly growing and the Infrastructure Security team is looking for people passionate about automating and embedding security to protect cloud workloads on the infrastructure level. 

If you are self-driven and thrilled about scaling security through automation, this is a position for you. 

Our vision in the InfraSec team is to enable our developers to build Klarna products which are secure by default. We build security services as part of our standard DevOps platform, making regular security audits easier and less costly on the developer teams. We aim to offer seamless and easy to integrate solutions for the people we work with, which requires understanding of the security-related problems developers face while creating great products.

We provide mentoring and training specific for you to get you up to speed.

Get in touch with us if you would enjoy...

  • Building security solutions using native AWS services (Lambda, DynamoDB, CloudFormation etc.)
  • Making sure that a service is secure from commit to production 
  • Being a pioneer in shaping what security at Klarna is
  • Learning and sharing your knowledge while having fun

It would be great if you have...

  • Experience with software development, preferably in Python or JavaScript
  • Experience with DevOps and CI/CD pipelines
  • Interest in securing cloud infrastructure (e.g. AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • Experience in working with container technology (Docker or Kubernetes) 
This is an exciting time to join our InfraSec team as we are growing and exploring new areas within the security domain. We know that diverse teams are strong teams, and welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. We are a team of technically curious problem solvers. Come and join us.
