You might already know that Blocket is the most visited classified ads website in Sweden. But did you know that we also have a lot of integrations with other companies that provide services to our users that are related to the items being sold on Blocket? From financing options, car owner history to pet insurance for your new puppy. We also have advertising placements, articles and inspirational pages. The platforms behind this functionality are handled by a team called Display & Integrations.
We are Blocket, Sweden’s largest and most popular marketplace with around 12,3M monthly active users generating 100 million sessions. We are proud of our work to enable the second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.

What you'll be up to:
At Integrations & Display you will work closely together with an array of partners both within and outside Blocket. We help other companies integrate with Blocket, we provide a CMS that our editors use and we build products for advertisements.
The team will have two web developers and two backend developers, a product manager, engineering manager and UX. App-developers, quality assurance and analysts are usually also involved in our projects.
Who you are
We believe you are a backend developer with a few years hands-on experience of backend development working in a team. You are able to independently lead the development of new features, and enjoy discussing and debating code and solutions with your peers. You like sharing your knowledge with your cross functional team and also more junior developers and above all, you are curious and continuously strive to learn new things. We are often working in pairs so collaboration is another key. And the thinking and problem solving mindset. The goal is what we create as a team, not the techniques we use. It is a bonus if you have experience with third party integrations, providing API's to customers and helping them to succeed.

The Blocket journey began in Skåne 1996 - since then the concept of Blocket has been exported to over 40 other countries. Today, Blocket, which is owned by the media group Schibsted, is Sweden’s largest online marketplace. There are approximately 600 000 items, vehicles, jobs and housing being advertised and discovered by its 5 million visitors every week. The value for all advertisements in 2018 amounted to SEK 714 billion - equal to 15 percent of Sweden’s GDP. Thanks to second-hand trading at Blocket, 0.8 million tonnes of greenhouse gases can be avoided every year. The output being equivalent to if Stockholm’s city roads stood empty for about a year. Blocket has approximately 240 colleagues and the office is located in central Stockholm. Together, we are passionate about second-hand trading, the environment and the continued growth of Blocket - one of Sweden’s largest sites. We are proud environmental heroes and enjoy working together. Read more on our career page.
