Full time Information Technology Security

Job Description

Klarna is a rapidly growing financial company with high requirements on IT and Information security. We are currently looking for someone to join our Security Operations team (SecOps) and help us further develop in the area of Application Security (aka AppSec). We offer a fast-paced international working environment with smart and ambitious colleagues and the opportunity to play an important role in taking Klarna to the next level.

SecOps is working daily in line with securing Klarna’s products and information by always having very close contact with our Product Development organization. We are expected to contribute with concrete and pragmatic solutions to difficult security problems that our software developers and operations engineers face every day.


If you are interested in building security in our products, not just as an add-on, and having fun sharing your knowledge and expertise while doing so, then we would love to have you on-board.


About you

In order to be successful in this role, you do not need to have years of experience in IT security but rather a genuine interest in it. What is more important is to enjoy working with challenging engineering problems and cooperating with other people while doing so, be self driven and humble while at the same time have very high ethical standards.


This role also requires:

  • Working experience in a DevOps environment/team
  • Ability to understand (and hopefully write) code
  • Solid scripting skills
  • Knowledge about integrating tools in CI/CD pipelines (e.g., Jenkins)


We see it as a plus if you have:

  • A B.Sc./M.Sc. in Computer Science
  • Experience in running complex infrastructure in cloud environments
  • Experience with containers technology (e.g., docker, K8, etc)
  • Experience with security testing
  • Experience with auditing source code



Culture - You'll have an opportunity to work with people from 42 different countries in our English-speaking office in Stockholm city centre.


Compensation - You’ll get an attractive salary, pension and insurance plans, along with 30 days annual leave.

Learning - We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training and regular internal technical talks.
