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.
What you'll be up to:
Do you enjoy writing code but want to expand your role? Do you want to focus not only on development, but act as a bridge between tech and product? Then Team Generalist - Private Seller might just be the right place for you! The team’s mission is to create successful and relevant ads by providing a frictionless way to insert and manage sellable items for private generalist sellers, in order to help them sell quickly and securely. And this is where you come in. Your focus would generally be on the backend, but you would also be working on the frontend depending on the project phases, adopting a holistic approach to development that enables you to work successfully across the whole stack.
Who you are
We believe you are either a fullstack developer or a backend developer with some knowledge and understanding of the frontend, with at least a few years hands-on experience working in a collaborative team environment. You have a holistic approach to development and a focus on the backend, although you are also comfortable working across the entire stack, depending on the project phases and workload. You are able to independently lead the development of new features across the stack 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.

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.
