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 iOS Developer. 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 the second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.
What you'll be up to:
We're on fire and one of Sweden’s most liked and used apps is to become better, brighter, smarter and cooler! It is kind of needed since there is heavy traffic on it - millions, yes millions, of users every week. It is time and you are welcome to join the ride as we take it into the next generation.
Together with the team you’ll work on both new features and maintenance, to continuously modernise the Blocket experience. In this awesome team called Private Seller, you will focus on creating a great experience for our users while inserting an ad. Pretty cool, right? You will work closely together with the Android, Web and Backend developers. We love testing sessions and pair programming, we try to sit and test the new flows and try to fix the found issues together.
We work in Swift on iOS and strive to write maintainable, clear code that is testable, and we use continuous integration and code reviews to ensure we get it right.
Our apps have undergone many design and technical revisions. When we see a new technology or pattern that may benefit our apps and product we don't hesitate to become early adopters and position ourselves ahead of the curve.
Who you are
We believe you are a seasoned developer with at least 4 years hands-on experience of iOS development working in a team. You are able to independently lead the development of new features, and enjoy discussing and debating code and solutions with your peers. You like sharing your knowledge with your team and 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.
You know how to code in Swift and SwiftUI (knowing Objective-C is a plus)
You know how to write clean, testable, simple and scalable code
You have good understanding of Apple frameworks and guidelines
You understand the unique needs of an iOS user
Above all, you are a great team player
Hi, I am your new colleague, Mohsen!
Hi, my name is Mohsen. I am originally from Iran and moved to Sweden 3 years back. Have been at Blocket for almost a year now. I love it here, great colleagues, great company, great work environment, great management and lots of opportunities to learn new things and grow. In my free time I read a lot, usually about investing. I love to take long walks too.

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.
