Who we are
Klarna’s mission is to free people from all the meaningless time spent managing money and purchases, so they can do more of what they love. Every day at Klarna we help consumers, merchants, and partners to explore just how smoooth the modern purchase experience can be. Our position at the crossroads of payments, consumer financing, ecommerce and banking means we are uniquely positioned to do this. There is no label for what we do.
Klarna was born in Stockholm in 2005 and today has 2500 employees working across Europe and the US. We currently serve 60 million consumers, work together with 130,000 merchants and process more than a million payment transactions a day. We are growing at 40% year on year and our investors include Visa, Atomico, Sequoia Capital, Permira and Bestseller group/ Anders Holsch Povlsen. We have strong partnerships with some of the world’s leading brands, such as ASOS, IKEA, Adidas, Zara, Lufthansa and Spotify.
Klarna’s mission is to take the friction out of how people buy online and we enable our users to purchase online using two bits of top of mind information - your email and postcode. When a user buys with Klarna we determine in real-time if the buyer really is who they appear to be and if we are prepared to underwrite credit for this transaction and take on the risk. In summary, our secret sauce is the ability to issue credit in real-time using behavioural data.
This is an excellent opportunity for experienced Software Engineers to join our brand new office in our newly formed location of Berlin, Germany. You’ll be one of the first feet on the ground and will lay the foundations for Berlin to become as big as our Stockholm office!
What you will do
We work 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.

We aim for teams that are inclusive, helpful, and have a strong sense of ownership for the things they build.
