So, what does our Search & Data team actually do? Well, we are three backend developers currently busy with building the foundation for the search experience at all of Blocket's site, using software like Elasticsearch, Postgres and Kafka and modern CI/CD pipeline based on Git, Spinnaker and Travis.
Did we mention that we will soon only be found in the cloud (AWS) where we will run our services in Kubernetes? We mainly use Go for new functionality (lovely performance improvements!) and Python as well. Have you never worked with these languages but have experience in C#, Java, or other backend languages? Hey, as long as you are interested in learning our languages and immensely enjoy coding, we are equally interested in hearing from you!Who you are
You are someone who's curious by nature, puts team-wins first and most importantly has a strong willingness to learn!

Hello, Jenny Cahier here! My goal is to foster a joyful, caring and energetic atmosphere for my team. Transparency, empathy, and enthusiasm are the values that define my leadership style - I encourage developers to make decisions regarding backlog, prioritization, and code while I help out with steering and structure for the team. Now, that was a lot of difficult words stacked on top of each other. Basically it all comes down to having fun at work and respecting each other - two things we truly do in our team. If you would like to know even more about me, feel free to do so https://www.linkedin.com/in/jenny-cahier-8821b72/!Interested in joining the Blocket world?
