Day-to-day work & Project
As our new Backend developer, you’re joining the Seller Experience team (part of the ReCommerce vertical) which has the goal of enhancing the sellers’ listings performances on the New Generation Marketplace. You as a Senior Backend developer, or at least you have racked up a lot of experience in backend development and feel secure in your role and with different technologies. 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 inside and outside your team and above all, you are curious and continuously strive to learn new things.
Goals During your first few months, we support you to get on board, settle in the team, gradually take over your role and collaboratively start delivering on the Backend. Further down the road, we’re eager to see you standing on your own (we’re here to have your back!).
Team? You will be part of Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces seller experience teams, in the Recommerce vertical, making sure that the sellers have the best possible experience on our platform. The team is responsible for the private seller experience in Blocket but will make a transition towards working with business-to-consumer solutions for all of the Nordic Marketplaces. We will need to maintain the services we have built for Blocket as well as build new solutions for Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces. We have a really exciting time ahead of us as a team. You will be part of a team consisting of Full Stack developers, frontend developers, backend developers and app developers, as well as a UX designer and Product Manager. We work closely with teams both in Sweden and other Nordic countries to build the marketplace of the future.
How do we collaborate? We win together by celebrating and caring for each other, we encourage each other to be curious and actively develop ourselves for example with the help of the LinkedIn Learning platform and Schibsted level training, and we are empowered to be fearless to share ideas and challenge ourselves to really make a difference for our customers.
Hi, I am your new manager!
My name is Jonas, and I will be your manager. I have worked in software development as a manager for quite some time now, mainly in FinTech and MarTech, before joining Blocket and Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces earlier this year. I believe in giving the team the tools and trust to empower themselves and to self-organize, making the team take responsibility for what they have built and what and how they will build stuff going forward. I thrive in setting up a friendly and inclusive atmosphere where you can be yourself and have fun.
