Hello from your future colleague
Hi! My name is Reggie Gudmundsson and I work as a Product Manager in the team of which you will be a part, so we will work closely together – I look forward to meeting you! I am passionate about working in a data-driven way to continuously improve our product and I can't wait to hear your thoughts about how to do that from the user perspective. I am an Icelander living in Hagsätra with my wife and two young children. I have been at Blocket for almost 2 years and love the engaged, friendly environment here. In my free time I love literature and learning about just about anything, so odds are that no matter what you are into, we can enjoy chatting about it :)
Hello from our head of UX at Motor!
I was hired at Blocket about 2 years ago to improve user-centric ways of working at Blocket Motor. At Blocket I saw an opportunity to be able to work with two super interesting areas; circular economy and the automotive industry. The automotive industry is going through rapid change towards digitization, sustainable mobility and electrification. Transport is a part of everyone’s life, it’s an enabler to connect people with each other and the world around them. With so many opportunities to explore, so many needs to understand, and so many people to design awesome services for, we need to strengthen our design team at Motor. I believe that design is key to building the future. If you do too, then come join us!

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.
