How are career development opportunities at Klarna?

Pros

The operating model that Klarna works with is great and it really focuses on you as a person and how you can contribute to your teams and to Klarna's success. It also allows you to take a career path that is seemingly different from other companies. I, myself, have changed positions twice over the past three years and it's been a very exciting ride to learn about so many different areas of the company. I feel like you get the support you need from the management and it's just a great place to work with a lot of great colleagues!

Cons

The only thing I could think of is that since Klarna is growing so rapidly (super exciting) the internal information flow is lacking at times.

How are promotions handled at Klarna?

Pros

I have been working at Klarna for 1.5 years and have learned more in the past year and a half than in my entire career. At Klarna, the culture is one of a kind. Everyone you meet is passionate, intelligent, caring, and shares the same personal and professional values. Working at Klarna you get to wear a lot of hats and work on many different projects at once. Klarna is fast-pace and you get to see your work have an immediate impact on the business and growth.

Cons

The promotion and salary adjustment at Klarna could be better communicated to leaders and individual contributors. I have already seen immense improvement on this in the last year and am looking forward to the future of the promotion process. While working for an international company, time zones are also a con, however, there is not much we can do there besides be flexible.

Pros

Company is fully of highly motivated and driven people who make the work place very fun to work in. People are always there to help with anything at any time of day.

Keep on doing what you're doing! The success we've been having recently is due in a large part to the support we are given. I think we are taking all the right steps into growing Klarna and reaching out potential and am very happy with working at Klarna!
