We’re searching for engineers to shape the future of payments at IKEA!
IKEA’s mission is to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low, that as many people as possible will be able to afford them. This spirit of access drives everything we do at IKEA, including our mission in Payments.

• An understanding of modern observability practices such as distributed tracing, structured logging and metrics.
• A mindset for championing an inclusive engineering culture.
• A passion for collaborating with and growing engineers around you.
• Superb communication skills.

• Experience working in e-commerce and online payments.

A day in your life with us?

• You will have challenging yet fun work environment. We believe that technical excellence and collaboration are key, and fun is a must.
• Everyday you will enjoy continuous learning. We want to invest in you and your future. With our 80/20 rule you’ll spend 80% of your time working on a product and 20% working on yourself.
