Want to make an impact during the rest of the year with your app skills and create WOW for millions of users? Work a little on your karma (or actually a lot if you want) since what we do is called circular economy saving huge amounts of greenhouse gases yearly. Welcome to Blocket, and specifically house of Apps, where we create endless opportunities for everyone using our app services, and where you contribute to a more sustainable future during your working hours. Pretty cool huh!?
We are Blocket, Sweden’s largest and most popular marketplace with around 12,3M monthly active users generating 85 million sessions. We are proud of our work to enable the second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.

We are currently looking for a few app developer consultants, both iOS and Android for a shorter assignment until the end of the year. Agencies are welcome to present profiles and since Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is an important part of our sustainability agenda, Blocket’s suppliers take responsibility as well. This means that at least 25% of tech profiles presented are female/non binary, and your company will specify/share its D&I agenda.
What you'll be up to
Together with the team you’ll work on both new features and maintenance, to continuously modernise the app - with millions of users. We work in Kotlin and Java on Android, Swift and Objective-C on iOS and strive to write maintainable, clear code that is testable, and we use continuous integration and code reviews to ensure we get 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.
Who are you?
We believe you are a seasoned developer with at least 4 years hands-on experience of Android or iOS development working in a team. You are able to independently lead the development of new features, and enjoy discussing and debating code and solutions with your peers. You like sharing your knowledge with your team and junior developers and above all, you are curious and continuously strive to learn new things.
Hi, I am Linda - your colleague!
Welcome to our awesome and dedicated app team! A team with in depth knowledge about apps and everything around it, but also appreciates team outings like boule, picnics and a beer or two. For me there are so many great things about Blocket. The major thing for me is that we are environmental friendly and enhance the secondhand use. The second thing I really appreciate is the fact that Blocket promotes innovation and growth, amongst other things through hackdays/hackathons, which are great fun! Erik is our manager and he is doing it great. Easy to talk to, keeps us focused and makes sure we prioritize right (to put it straight, we are a super appreciated team - we are kind of needed. A lot.). Please don’t hesitate to send your application! We’re looking forward to welcome new members to our fantastic team!
Hello from your manager!
My name is Erik and I'm the Engineering Manager in the App Team. My team and I are responsible for our iOS and Android apps, used by hundreds of thousands users every day. Working with a product that is loved and used by so many users while providing a service that is actually good for the environment is one of my biggest motivators. Doing it with this small but passionate team is a huge bonus.
While our app user base is growing by the minute, focus is shifting to our apps. All our marketplaces want things done. Currently our greatest challenge is building an architecture that supports this fast pace. This is where you come in (help please)! If you want to contribute to a great passionate team, then I am very much looking forward to hear from you.

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.
