Junior Developers to our Junee Program

Junior Developers to our Junee Program

25 years ago, a tech company called Blocket was born. A brilliant idea became one of the first start-ups on the Swedish tech arena. And we are still here, still very strong and very much loved by our users. The need for us, offering endless opportunities for everyone and enabling the second hand trade market, is bigger than ever. During the years, we have been trying new initiatives in order to develop and grow. We have failed a lot but that is how we have learnt and grown. Now it is time to introduce a new initiative. Hold your horses, especially all of you fresh techies out there. Ladies, gents and non-binary friends - let us introduce BJP; Blocket Junee Program! We are investing in the future, we are taking more responsibility than ever, to foster next generations of Blocketeers. And it is damn on time since we have been really lousy on it. But here we are, calling tech graduates and all of you who are early in your developer career. Cause in September we welcome you to the best house there is; Blocket Greenhouse - where ideas and minds grow.

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. Want to get a feel for the Blocket vibe? Check us out on Instagram & LinkedIn !
