Om du blir en av oss...

Våra medarbetare gör ett fantastiskt jobb och därför vill vi också ge dem det bästa.

Jobbar du på Blocket får du bland annat:

  • De bästa kollegorna

    På Blocket är vi schyssta och bryr oss om varandra. Här får alla vara sig själva. Vi firar, peppar och fikar massor. Och vi gillar att ha kul tillsammans.

  • Vara med och skapa en hållbar framtid

    Tack vare begagnathandeln på Blocket sparar svenskarna nästan en miljon ton växthusgaser varje år. Det kan liknas vid att all trafik i Stockholm stod stilla i 1 år.

  • Worklife balance

    Vi älskar att gå till jobbet, men vi älskar också att hämta våra barn från förskolan. Hos oss får du vardagspusslet att gå ihop. Du får en förmånlig föräldralön, ett generöst friskvårdsbidrag, behandlingar hos vår massör och en privat sjukvårdsförsäkring.

  • Karriärmöjligheter

    Blocket är det lilla företaget i det stora. Sedan 2003 är vi en del Schibsted, så karriärmöjligheterna är många, både i Sverige och utomlands.

Arbetsplats och kultur

Vi är ett techbolag i grunden som erbjuder en innovativ och avslappnad miljö där fokus ligger på att du ska känna dig som hemma. Vår husmor bjuder oss på sin fantastiska fruktsallad och vi har en massös som ger oss massage på arbetstid. Med Schibsted i ryggen har vi kunnat utvecklas och samarbeta över bolagsgränserna. Vi har Hackdays, yoga, running club och utbildningar tillsammans med kollegor från andra Schibstedbolag.
