Cloud Security 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.

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.

Engineering is rapidly growing and we are looking for new talent to join our Infrastructure Security team!


What you'll get to do

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. 

Our vision in the 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.

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

Some of the things you'll get to work with

  • 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

You should 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)
What we can offer you

Culture - You'll have an opportunity to work with people from 90+ different countries in our English speaking offices in Stockholm/Berlin city centre.

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, marathons, and all sorts of activities that promote physical health. We also have generous parental leave (for men and women).

Relocation - We can offer relocation support to Stockholm. 

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.

We also believe in making contributions back to the open source community. You can find some of our work at https://github.com/klarna.
