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 Back End focused Full Stack 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 second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.
What you'll be up to:
Welcome to Team Transaction, part of the Generalist area at Blocket. We are responsible for creating and executing the area's product strategy that ensures smooth and efficient customer and user journeys. Ensuring smooth sailing for the users, making shipping and payment easy and safe. You and the rest of the crew will be keeping things steady and developing the area, and ensuring that we meet the expectations in this digital-driven era. So if you’re up to helping us ensure the users can just sit back and relax while the stuff they just bought or sold is being shipped, as well as building some smarter code, we would love to hear from you.
Who you are:
We believe you are either a senior engineer with some experience beneath your belt and ready to take the next leap or that you’ve already had some experience working as a tech lead. 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 can 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 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.
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! Have a link to some neat stuff on GitHub? Make sure to include a link when you apply.
Blocket services are for everyone, and so is our workplace. We have an inclusive culture, and we see diversity as a great advantage in creating great products and services for our users and clients. We still have a lot more to do and, therefore, really welcome your perspective.

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.
