In the beginning, there was only köp&sälj. At the time in ancient tech history, some 25 years ago, this diamond was born. Not to brag, but it was a success from the start. A masterpiece that has been cloned and exported to +30 countries. A famous and very loved product by people all over the world. And by nature. Oh dear, what good it brings to mother earth. Today, this part of Blocket is still the core of everything. No köp&sälj, no Blocket. The greenest part of our red heart now needs its new Product Manager. And even if we have been around for a while, there are as many exciting things ahead of us in this marketplace jewel. Just as it was in the beginning.
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 second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact. Want to get a feel for the Blocket vibe? Check us out onInstagram & LinkedIn! Or read more on begagnateffekten.se.
Blocket services are for everyone and so is our workplace. We have an inclusive culture and we see diversity as a great advantage to create great products and services for our users and clients. We still have a lot more to do and therefore really welcome your perspective.
What you will be up to
As a PM, you have a central role in finding the best opportunities for our products and developing solutions that our users love, and that creates value for our business. You will work in a fantastic cross-functional and agile team that is led by you, an Engineering Manager and a UX specialist. Together you form the troika. A trio that will help to be ahead of it all; the business, the strategy and the problem solving.
The troika’s responsibility is to be the expert in understanding what our users, customers and business needs and translate those into action. The team will therefore work closely with our users to identify and solve key user problems. You will run experiments to test your hypotheses and iterate your way towards your goals. In addition, it is you, together with your troika-partners who are responsible for developing the team's vision, mission strategy and goals.
So what we are trying to say is that as PM at Blocket, you are the most important person. Not only as the glue in the cross functional teams, the key for the future business success, but for bringing great value to our 5 million users every week. As a side effect you are also reducing the carbon footprint since what you do at work is circular economy. The best side effect ever!
Who you are
You have the ability to engage with everyone - in a constructive and collaborative relationship. Collaboration is the key that together will lead the team to results and success.
You will be in the middle of the creation which means you need to understand the multiple functional areas of business. I.e. the complexity and the interactions of engineering with design, with finance, with sales and marketing etc. You get it - this is where the real business starts. The great part is that you are never alone, the troika will get you there. Together with the team you will figure out solutions to hard problems with many constraints. Together you will validate assumptions in a smooth way and how to get to action, to speed and reach goals and results. Amazing results. The sky is the limit. Or actually, there’s no limit. Since you have the troika, no valley will be too deep, no mountain too high. Your role, bringing the product responsibility and knowledge is crucial for Blocket’s business as whole. We said it before, we say it again: no köp&sälj - no Blocket.
Hello from the PM guild
What we like about working at Blocket is that we as PMs have a great possibility to influence. The things we build have a very direct and measurable effect thanks to the large volume of data. We have a strong focus on being data driven in our work and constantly learn from the experiments and insights we do and get along the way. We work in cross-functional teams with skilled and committed colleagues. Colleagues who are passionate about Blocket's vision of a greener circular future. That in itself feels awesome and valuable! Good support and inspiration is obtained from our tight PM team who are never more than a message/chat away. Sharing is caring and the collaboration in the troika is a fantastic (sometimes challenging) way of working. You get a better understanding, and learn new perspectives and three brains gets further than one.
Hi from your new Manager!
I am Maria and lead the product group within Köp&Sälj at Blocket. I am a proud Blocketeer, and enjoy waking up every single Monday (almost true…) to meet amazing colleagues for a week of hard work, a lot of laughs, hopefully a brilliant idea or two, some things not going as planned we can learn from, new user insights, sometimes an AW, and always a culture of trust and safety. And that is always true. As a PM at Blocket you will take on great responsibility and be able to make your mark quickly as we are still a relatively small organization. I can assure you it’s an exciting opportunity!

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.
