Would you like to work with one of Sweden’s most well-known brands and largest websites, making a daily impact for millions of users, while saving 800 000 tonnes of greenhouse gases yearly? Join us at Blocket!
We are looking for positive and social colleagues who enjoy collaboration - we always go the extra mile to support our peers. Developing a product like Blocket is truly a team effort and caring for each other is one of our core values.
Curiosity is very much encouraged. Learning new technologies, sharing findings with others, and being generous with feedback and support is the foundation for our continuous improvement - for the product, our team, the way we work as well as our self-development. We test, learn and improve in short cycles, focusing on creating customer value and an extraordinary user experience.
Who will you be working with?
Our teams at Blocket are agile, cross-functional and autonomous, so while you will spend a lot of time interacting and working with your fellow developers, you will also be working closely with other developers, UI/UX designers, testers and product managers. 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.
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 - and growing every day. 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.
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.
At the moment we are moving our Android architecture towards using Kotlin, dependency injection and Android Architecture components.
If you are passionate about app development, we would love to hear from you!
You will work with 250 enthusiastic colleagues who care about each other and are proud of being a part of the secondhand movement and supporting a more sustainable future.
We strongly believe that our colleagues is what make us successful and great, which is why we live by our values; be brave, take responsibility, collaborate and create WOW.
We offer you a central location, hackdays and yearly off-site conferences. We also believe that happy and healthy employees do a better job, whereby we offer our employees private healthcare, a hefty health care grant and in-office massage and training sessions. And yes, we have a collective agreement (“kollektivavtal”) as well.
