We're on fire and we’re doubling our app team! One of Sweden’s most liked and used apps is to become better, brighter, smarter and cooler! It is kind of needed since there is heavy traffic on it - millions, yes millions, of users every week. It is time and you are welcome to join the ride as we take it into the next generation. At the same time, you will do good during working hours as you will contribute to the circular economy saving huge amounts of greenhouse gases yearly. Welcome to Blocket, where we create endless opportunities for everyone using our app services. And even bigger, you will contribute to a more sustainable future during your working hours. That’s pretty hard to beat!
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 we are doing a real app investment. Like a huge upgrade as we’re doubling up both on the both iOS and Android side. Together with the team you’ll work on both new features and maintenance, to continuously modernise the app. We work in Kotlin on Android, Swift 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. We are often working in pairs so collaboration is another key.
Hi, we are Linda and Julita - your colleagues!
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 us there are so many great things about Blocket. The major thing is that we are environmental friendly and enhance the secondhand use. The second thing we really appreciate is the fact that Blocket promotes innovation and growth, amongst other things through hackdays/hackathons, which are great fun! A third thing is our team, which is very friendly and social and we have a lot of fun together. We support and help each other with anything that pops up. We got each others back! Sten 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 Sten 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 be able to innovate and try out new things are some 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. We are proud environmental heroes and enjoy working together. Read more on our career page.
