What you'll be up to:
"Imagine you are in the market for a used bike - and I bet you do it on Blocket where 150.000 bikes are sold yearly. You will most likely use the start page, the search tools and then look through a list of results. Whenever you see a sweet bike that you find interesting, you will probably click on it to get to the object page. This discovery journey is something my team and I are responsible for.

You will develop products for (pretty much) the whole of the Swedish population with one of the API´s we serve are handling 30 million requests/day.

Our mission is to serve the best "search and discover" experience to the people of Sweden. And that is truly awesome!"
