Security lies at the core of all the things we do at Klarna and we're looking for people passionate about taking our security operations in a highly dynamic environment to the next level. In the Vulnerability Management team, we're building tools and mechanisms for giving us a continuous real-time view of identified security issues. We constantly challenge our ways of working to make sure we're keeping up with Klarna's fast-paced development progress. In order to achieve that, we're focusing heavily on automating all things that can be automated.
