Diversity & inclusion.
Our mission is to create an inclusive and empowering environment, where all people have equal opportunities to fulfill their potential and be the best and truest version of themselves.
We are committed to being a workplace in which people are treated with dignity and respect, irrespective of their backgrounds.
We truly want to disrupt the biases and social issues that influence not only Klarna but our industry and society at large. Our commitment needs to be accompanied by meaningful action, and we will create transparency about the challenges that lie ahead.
At Klarna, we ensure that everyone is given the same opportunities for professional and personal development. We want to foster an inclusive company culture that welcomes different perspectives to the discussion and that connects people from a wide range of backgrounds.
We firmly believe that being a diverse and inclusive workplace brings value to everyone, from retaining diverse talent who reflect our customers to dialogue with our partners that enable us to learn from each other and constantly improve.
Gender balanced by 2025
We strive for gender equality and will accelerate the careers of women. By 2025, we want to bridge the gap so our company truly reflects the world we live in, by having balanced gender representation. It’s critical that we set a milestone so we don’t rely on the world to change but create the change we want to see. With engineers making up more than 30% of our workforce and men being overrepresented in STEM generally, we know that we’re up against a wider industry issue. In that sense, it’s even more important that we remove any friction from our hiring process, test new ways of sourcing diverse talent, ensure equal promotions, equal pay, and zero tolerance to any form of harassment or discrimination.
Hire fair and inclusively
We provide training to our recruiting teams to ensure inclusive hiring and we have added dedicated recruiters to solely focus on diverse talent.

Build awareness and uncover biases
