    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Klarna (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A couple of weeks after I applied, I was invited to attempt an online IQ test. In quick succession after this test (within 2 days each) were an interview with the HR Recruiter, with the hiring manager and a technical interview with 2 engineers. All interviewers were very professional and highly knowledgeable in their domain. The interviewers were not easy, but the interviewers never put me in a spot or made me feel uncomfortable - and as a result, I was able to do my best.

    After this, I was invited for an on-site interview in Stockholm, for which my travel and stay were promptly arranged (I flew in from a non-EU country).

    The on-site interviews were also very well organized. They were 4 back to back interviews in the first half of the day. I felt at ease throughout. I especially enjoyed the live-coding test and felt that it is a very good way to test a candidate's skills (as opposed to textbook questions which might serve a candidate's memory at best).

    The HR Recruiter always kept me in the loop regarding any updates in my application and in the hiring process. Enjoyed the interviews a lot, and am now looking forward to start working at Klarna!

    Interview Questions

    Full Stack Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Klarna (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smooth through a couple of levels: a talk with Klarna's HR who proposed a better position than the one I applied for - better suited for my current career plan, anyway.

    A very interesting pattern-matching IQ screening followed.

    Then we moved on to a 1-to-1 meeting with one of the managers, and then came the first phase of the technical interview, where things started getting odd. The tech questions and even the live coding challenge went smooth, but I did get a very weird question for a tech interview, that I probably flunked completely... and then I never heard from Klarna for 8 days.
