Klarna graduate programs.

Put your knowledge into practice. At Klarna, graduates solve real business problems.

The 12-month split.

When you join us through the graduate program, you will be employed full-time in one of our offices in Stockholm, Berlin, London, Gothenburg, Milan, Madrid, Mannheim, Giessen, or one of our US offices.

Each graduate opportunity lasts for 12 months and allows you to experience working in two to three different teams within the same area of the business. After you complete six months in the team, you have initially joined, you will rotate to another team. This way, you will get a better understanding of your and your team’s impact and experience first-hand the way teams connect and work together in the wider Klarna ecosystem.

Throughout the twelve months, you will go through a series of training modules designed to provide you with the right skills and knowledge to support your development and fast-track your growth. You will also have a buddy, a person from Klarna, who will be there to ensure you receive the support and mentoring you need fast-track your growth.

When the program is completed, you choose your own path at Klarna, either in the same team, or a new one.
