We’re on the road again! A pretty new role, well a few months old, but still new and shiny. The smell of leather. The smell of the classic green Wunder-baum. Very electric, sparkling but with recycled finnish. It is the Rolls Royce of product roles. We are looking for our new Product Manager for one of the teams in our biggest marketplace - Blocket Motor. The map for the road ahead is quite clear, the direction is set. You will be in the driver’s seat when transforming the private part in Motor in Blocket’s financially strongest product area. It is a F1 for sure, but do not worry, you have the greatest crew of co-drivers who will make sure new awesome, secure and trustable products are created and developed for our private users. Jump in, seatbelts on, the green flag is waved. We are here to win!
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 on Instagram & LinkedIn ! Or read more on begagnateffekten.se.
We are currently updating our Motor Private trio and replacing Kajsa who took the role temporarily as a consultant. It is now time to find our new PM for the team. And to make it clear, you do not have to love vehicles, but you do have to love user centred product development. As a product person at heart, you will learn everything about it by the greatest team there is - team Blocket Motor.
What you will be up to
As a PM for team Private, you are responsible for the end-to-end customer journeys of our private sellers and buyers. 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. As mentioned, you will work in a fantastic cross-functional and agile team that is led by you, an Engineering Manager and a UX designer. A trio that will help to be ahead of it all; the business, the strategy and the problem solving.
The troijka’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 troijka-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. At the same time, you will contribute to creating a sustainable Sweden. Such a great side effect!
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 troijka 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's the limit. Or actually, there’s no limit. Since you have the troijka, 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.
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 circulair 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 troijka is a fantastic (sometimes challenging) way of working. You get a better understanding, and learn new perspectives and three brains gets further than one.
Say hello to your manager, Mattias!
By the time you and I leave Blocket, the mobility market will have undergone major transformations and we will have played central roles in making it happen. I joined Blocket in September of last year after a long career in digital strategy and product development to be a part of this particular journey and look forward to welcoming you aboard. As a PM, you have direct impact on the direction and value delivery of the Motor product, and we will challenge each other to start with the user, maintain a holistic perspective and think critically.
Interested in joining the Blocket world? We look forward to hearing from you! Send your CV or apply with your LinkedIn-profile and let us know what makes you tick. We would love to get to know you a bit better!
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 services for our users and clients. We still have a lot more to do and therefore welcome your perspective. Welcome onboard!
