Data Science plays a vital role in Klarna’s operations. Historically, our focus areas have revolved around real-time risk decision-making for transactions. This can either pertain to credit assessment for individuals or identification of fraudulent transactions. Since then we have added many new data science areas such as predicting customer lifetime value, predicting return behaviour in e-commerce, etc. Data Scientists in the Payment Selector team work to understand consumers’ favourite payment options and give them the best payment experience.
