Hi from your new Manager!
I am Helena and I am the Engineering Director for Blocket Motor. My job is about building healthy tech orgs with happy people so that we together can deliver what our customers, users and business need. It is always possible to move on, I believe, if we have clear objectives and remove impediments in prio order together, and if we continuously reflect and improve. I prefer not to think too long and instead get started, though, because I believe that’s an approach that works in a complex world - and also because progress is fun! As a manager I believe in psychological safety, and that my role is to give you that, and whatever is needed to challenge you and let you grow!

Interested in joining the Blocket world?
