The best with this team is ... the team :) Truly awesome atmosphere, super engaged and helpful colleagues who are passionate about collaboration and what they do. We have various backgrounds and competences, so we can tackle tasks/issues from different angles and there are always good and fruitful discussions. It also means that there's hardly anything we can't solve as a team and there is always someone who will be able to help out with the most specific or weird question. Oh, and our manager hosts music quizzes with live music - money doesn't buy that!
What brought me (Monika) to Blocket personally was it's focus on circular economy and cleaning up in the storage room. But then it turned out that this is a bunch of creative and passionate people here, who want to develop awesome products and help our customers with a variety of 'projects' in different stages of their lives. Also, I appreciate good communication and transparency throughout the whole organization, and can honestly say that this is the most value driven company I've been working at!
If you like me (Andreas), and is a fan of working data driven, then this role and team is a dream. I myself am very interested in the motor business, and having access to huge amounts of fantastic good data and tools, in order to solve problems together with my colleagues for our motor customers, car buyers and other users, is THE dream! In addition, we all have very fun together, for example company AWs, conferences etc.
The absolutely best thing about the analyst role is to work together with the rest of the organization. We don't just 'deliver reporting', we are actively involved in product development, create insights and suggest improvements. It means that not everything is always crystal clear at all stages and we need to be flexible and proactive, but if that's what one is searching for, then this is the perfect role!Hi, I am your new manager!
My name is Lukas and I've been with Blocket for 3+ years. I've worked in analytical and data related roles through my entire career, although the contexts have changed over the years. My goal as a manager is to create the best possible contentions for the 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 when I do - I enjoy it 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, motivation rather than talent though. Come join our team, it will be loads of fun! :)Interested in joining the Blocket world?
