Want to make an impact during your working hours with your Django and React 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 - basically meaning saving huge amounts of greenhouse gases yearly. Welcome to Blocket, and specifically house of BANG, where we collaborate by mob programming. As a huge bonus 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 +100 million sessions. We are proud of our work to enable the second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.

What you'll be up to
So what are we doing in our team? Currently we are working on Blocket Utbildning, our educational site, where we help people grow their knowledge and careers. In addition we also have other initiatives, adjacent to Blocket’s core secondhand business. As a team, we work autonomously, agile and collaborate to solve the problems we face. For us, trust is important and we keep a transparent dialog with each other.
Who you are
You enjoy an environment where you create hypotheses on user data and build prototypes quickly. Even more important, you are excited to work in a mob. If you tried and loved it before, that is a plus. However, it is enough if you are excited about programming collaboratively daily.
Hello from the team
Hello! We are the BANG mob, your future team. We are a group of developers who love creating value and have fun at the same time. We are certain that you will have a smooth transition into becoming a Blocketeer. “Wow, this is the fastest onboarding I’ve ever experienced” is a sentence we’ve heard more than once. Since we do everything together as a mob, and never split assignments among us, we can always rely on each other for guidance in whatever we have on the agenda. And when you join, your onboarding will be our highest priority!
Hi, I am your manager!
Hi, my name is Jenny Cahier. As your engineering manager, my job is to make sure that you are feeling engaged at work and have everything you need from the organisation. I believe firmly in values such as transparency and trust; it is of great importance to me that we can be the same person at home as in the team. When it comes to making tech decisions, I believe those are best made by the engineers although I am always available to give guidance if asked, or positive feedback for a job well done!

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. We are proud environmental heroes and enjoy working together. Read more on our career page.
