Application Process

What documents should I send with my application?
We need your résumé and cover letter. If the ad is in English, please send us the documents in English.

Can I send in my application by e-mail?
We prefer not to receive CVs by email. Please submit your application by using the form on our careers website, or on the website that you saw an advert on. By using the form we can ensure that your application is read by the right person and there won’t be any unnecessary delays.

Is it OK to apply to several different positions?
Yes, that’s fine. However, we recommend that you adjust your résumé and letter for the specific position, since this gives you a better chance of explaining why you are the right person for the job.

I’m not sure if my covering letter uploaded correctly?
We have a great recruitment system but it is not perfect. Some people find they cannot see the cover letter they have uploaded and are worried that we didn’t receive it. However, every time we’ve checked it’s been right where it should be. So don’t worry!

I just sent in my application, when do I hear from you?
Most of our adverts run for 2-4 weeks. There is normally a period after the application deadline during which we evaluate all applications. However, we endeavor to get back to you as soon as possible. We read all applications and you will always hear back from us.

Who can I contact for questions regarding my application?
Please send an email to talentacquisition@klarna.com and we will get the right member of the team to respond to you.

Qualifications and requirements

Do I need to speak the local language to work at Klarna?
For most positions this is not a requirement but English is our corporate language, and so good communication skills in English is a pre-requisite to work at Klarna. Additionally, local language may be needed for some positions – if so we will write it in the ad.

Do you offer any special programs for students such as internships or trainee programs?
Currently we do not have a formal Graduate or Intern programme. We do sometimes have openings for newly qualified graduates – we will publicise these on our website.

Interview process

What can I expect from the recruitment process?
We are performing different tests as a part of the selection process such as personality and logic tests. Further into the process we will also request to do a background check.

How should I prepare for an interview at Klarna?
We love it when people have researched our business, and demonstrate a strong understanding of what we do. At the same time, we want to hear about you. So it would be good if you have practiced describing your skills, experience and passion in a compelling and succinct way.

How should I dress for an interview?
We do not have a specific dress code. Our advice is to wear what you believe is suitable for the position you applied for.
