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.

Tech stack
We are undergoing a technical transition towards a micro service architecture, with all of our current systems running as decoupled services in Docker containers.

We use Go, Python, Javascript, Node and C# for our services and modern Javascript frameworks such as React, Redux and Webpack for building frontend applications, communicating via REST.

We use a multitude of software to run our ecosystem, such as Postgres, MySQL and Redis for storage, Kafka as our message bus and are working towards using Elasticsearch as a base for all of our search APIs. We do this using a modern CI/CD pipeline based on Git, Jenkins, Spinnaker and Travis.

We are currently moving our production environment to AWS and the next step for our infrastructure is to move our container orchestration from Docker Swarm to Kubernetes and Amazon EKS.

If you are passionate about backend development, we would love to hear from you!

Why Blocket?
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.

Blocket and Schibsted
Blocket is owned by Schibsted, a Norwegian holding company with marketplaces and media assets in dozens of countries with close to 5000 employees. In Schibsted you find companies like Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, Lendo, Prisjakt, Compricer and many more.
