Uni is over, what next? Unlimit your possibilities as a graduate.

Here’s the deal: at Klarna, we are really having a moment. We’re revolutionizing shopping, payments, and banking. And the world is taking note. 

Among those folks witnessing our hypergrowth, we know there are tons of bold, curious, and driven final-year students and recent graduates looking for their next golden pink opportunity. 

The good news? Starting from today, the applications are open for our 2022 Graduate Program across our various teams and locations. We invite you all to put your knowledge into practice and help solve real business problems, so you can learn on the fly and fast-track your professional growth. 


What roles did we open?

You can now browse and apply to dozens of roles across different competences (what other – more boring – companies would call departments), here are just some of them: 


📈 Accounting roles based in Stockholm

👩🏽‍💻 Business Operations based in Stockholm or Berlin 

📱 Product roles based across Stockholm and Berlin 

⚙️ Solutions & Delivery roles based across Stockholm and Berlin 

💻 Engineering roles in Stockholm, Berlin, Giessen, Milan, Madrid, Gothenburg and Mannheim 


Who can apply for the Graduate Program?

To qualify for the program, you must have a Bachelor’s, Master’s, MBA, or postgraduate degree and a maximum of 3 years of working experience.

We welcome applicants from all over the world, but please be aware that we expect successful applicants to be physically present in the location of their team for the duration of the program. (Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean working from the office all of the time, most of our teams employ a hybrid model with a few days of work from home combined with some days of working from one of our unreasonably aesthetic offices)

Don’t listen to us. Listen to our past participants. 

We could go on forever talking about how great of an opportunity our graduate program is. But there are better people who can testify to that – our previous participants. Here is what some of them are saying: 

“The Graduate Program opened an opportunity for me to join a tech company without having any technical background. Klarna is a place where I can apply my passion for business consulting and problem solving, and develop my technical skills at the same time.” – says Valeryia, a graduate working in Solutions & Delivery. 

David, who joined a team within Product Management as a graduate, told us: 

“The Graduate Program at Klarna allowed me to join an exciting and challenging company, without having a ton of experience in the field of BNPL/Super Apps. At the same time, it helped me recognize my appetite to learn and grow through my own irregular career path.”

We also asked Olle, a graduate working in Business Operations, how he’s found the experience. Here’s what he said: 

“The Klarna Graduate program has really given me the opportunity to deep-dive into my interests while also stepping out of my comfort zone. And to be given this kind of ownership and accountability in my work has helped me grow a lot!”


Please note: As of 28/04/2022, the Analytics, Business Development, and Marketing competences will no longer accept applications for the Graduate Program opportunities previously advertised. Nevertheless, we encourage you to explore other roles within these competences, which you can find on the page linked below.
