Klarna strives to become the world's favourite way to buy, & you can contribute to reaching this goal! We are looking to hire great people, who are passionate about using their talents to generate success. Analytics is no exception! We are currently looking to grow our Analytics teams to satisfy the company's ever-increasing need for complex problem solving & data driven decision making.
