If you are the kind of person who believes the answers to business growth and product development are found in data. If a love relationship with data also extends to spreading the word on Data Culture; then hello there! Blocket is looking for you.
We are convinced it's a match made in data heaven (all our analytics services in the cloud. Pun intended!). We can offer huge amounts of data to work with: 5 million users every week contribute to an endless supply of data and insights. Every week, every day, all year long.
Your mission, together with the rest of the Insight & Analytics team, is to collaboratively drive a data-first culture across Blocket. With such a mission we contribute to endless opportunities for everyone while at the same time reducing the carbon footprint for the people of Sweden. That is creating WOW!
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 second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.
What you'll be up to:
In the Insight & Analytics team you will analyze transactional, user behavior and traffic data to manage our performance, drive our development of products and features and inform decision making. In short - make sure we can grow our marketplace based on data.
As a BI Developer for Sales you will work closely with the Sales Leadership team, Sales Operations and to some degree even with individual sales representatives. Sales in Blocket has a really data driven way of working and they use performance reports while selling. And we want to take that even further, making data informed decision making the primary key to our success. Basically because our customers want to know what kind of performance they get when they advertise on Blocket.
We contribute and work close to the heartbeat of our Business. You will work closely with different parts of sales (we have 4 marketplaces / business areas in Blocket; Motor, Generalist, Jobs and Education and extract actionable insights that will help drive decisions across the business. And make sure insights and results are self served and easily consumable. Since we are an essential part of almost everything going on in Blocket, being very infectious with your data driven mindset is key to keeping all parts of Blocket aligned.
Since Blocket has a wide variety of products with a massive reach among the Swedish people (remember - 5 million each week!) your work will have a direct impact on how our users do second-hand business, while creating a more sustainable world. What a win-win-win situation!

Hi, I'm Fredrik and I work as a BI developer in the Insight and Analytics Team.
Blocket is a good and challenging work environment. Where you will improve your existing techniques and learn new techniques every day. You will meet different types of sales people from different kinds of sales departments and some departments will be very easy to construct dashboards and other departments will be more difficult as it depends on the maturity of that department's data infrastructure. The focus of the Sales Department will be on sales, revenue, budget, meetings, new/existing customers, products solds, ad views etc. and you will perhaps make more complicated dashboards such as cohorts analytics or cluster analytics depending on the sales department’s requests. The benefits with blocket is that it's open, transparent, nice people, good collaboration and a learning atmosphere. Come and join us!
Hi, I am your new manager!
My name is Lukas and I’ve been with Blocket for about 4 years. I’ve worked in analytical and data related roles throughout my entire career, although the contexts have changed over the years. My goal as a manager is to create the best possible conditions for our team to thrive. I try to keep a personal touch in my leadership, strive for a transparent and feedback oriented culture. Honestly, I don’t spend as much time “hands-on” with data as I would like, but I cherish the limited time I get to do that immensely. When I’m not working I try to spend as much time as I can with my family (4 daughters and wife) but try to squeeze in as much time on my skateboard/snowboard or in the saddle exploring the unpedaled roads on my bike. I do bring out the guitar for birthdays and live music quizzes now and then, motivation rather than talent, though. Anyways, come join our team, it will be loads of fun! :)
Interested in joining the Blocket world?
We look forward to hearing from you! Send your CV or apply with your LinkedIn-profile and let us know what makes you tick. We would love to get to know you a bit better! Questions - feel free to reach out to [email protected]
PS: We will be on vacation during July/August so it might take a little longer to come bak to 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.
