Hi! My name is Erik and I am Head of App Engineering at Blocket. I am now looking for a creative, driven and curious developer to join our group of around ten app developers.
What will you be working on?
As an app developer at Blocket you will be working on both new features and maintenance of an app used by over a million users (growing every day!) and you will contribute to one of the most recognized and loved services in Sweden. We are proud of being a part of the secondhand movement by creating opportunities for our users and supporting a more sustainable future.
Our apps have undergone many design and technical revisions. We strive to write maintainable and clear code that is testable, and we use continuous integration and code reviews to ensure we make it right.
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.
We were early adopters of Swift at Blocket and has since moved the majority of our code base over to a Swift-only architecture. While you will be digging into the odd Objective-C here and there, our goal is to be 100% Swift down the road and we hope you like that idea.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a new colleague who is creative and pragmatic. At Blocket we enjoy working with others, both inside and outside our own competence and we go the extra mile to support our colleagues. Developing a product like Blocket is a team effort and caring for each other is one of the core values of our company.
We also encourage curiosity. Learning new things, sharing our findings with others, and being generous with feedback and support is a part of our way of becoming the best workplace in Sweden for engineers (one of our strategic goals for the next years).
Are you ready to take the next step in your career as an iOS developer? We would like to see that you currently work on an iOS app, but attitude, drive and an eager to learn are as important. If you love app development and want to join our exciting Blocket journey, don’t hesitate to apply!
Who will you be working with?
Our teams at Blocket are cross-functional, so while you will spend a lot of time interacting and working with your fellow app developers, you will also be working closely with other developers, UI/UX designers, testers and product owners. Thus it is important that you are communicative and that you are able to discuss technical questions and problems both with your peers and with colleagues working in other fields.
At Blocket we believe that different backgrounds and perspectives is beneficial for our workplace and product – Together we make a difference and create a sustainable future!
