We are Blocket
Welcome to Blocket Greenhouse!
Ideas, people and technology has been growing here since 1997 when one of the original Swedish startups went into business. This is where we make our plans for a better way of providing the primary platform for a truly sustainable circular economy. The world needs us as much as we need it. And your contribution can have an enormous impact when it comes to providing the boundless opportunities for people to live a life where they can nd what they need without paying the premium of consuming more of our nite resources.
With 240 colleagues in Stockholm and +1200 more in the Nordics, we share a passion for our work, and foster a friendly and caring community. Curiosity,
teamwork, problem-solving and continuous learning are the cornerstones of our culture, which enable us to go towards our burning ambition to make the sustainable alternative the obvious choice by 2035.
We make an impact
In 2019 alone, our users spared the world 730017 ton CO₂e* by second hand trading, instead of buying new things. This correlates to the same amount of CO₂e as the Stockholm traffic during 10 months!

This is how we do it
In the Greenhouse, there are four values that form the foundation of Blocketeers’ and our colleagues culture cross-Nordics. These values guide us and serve as a track to follow in order to achieve our goals and purpose. They help us build trust with our users, partners and amongst ourselves. If these values align with your own, if they feel like the kind of people you want to be surrounded by, then come and join us to inspire people and the world, to contribute to even more sustainability. Cause that is needed.
We care about each other and value our differences, knowing that they make us stronger. We celebrate our wins and have fun as a team. Together we can make the impossible happen.
We seek diverse perspectives, innovate through experimentation and alwavs look for opportunities to grow. When we fail, we learn from it.
We step out of our comfort zone to challenge ourselves and each other. We say it like it is, always with respect and kindness.
Make a difference
We aim high and move fast in order to make a positive impact. We turn our passion into value for our users and customers.

Blocket is for everyone
The secret sauce
The Blocket journey began in Skåne 1996 and since then the concept of Blocket has been exported to over 40 other countries. Today, we at Blocket are an important part of Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces which is the leading family of online marketplaces in the Nordics. Blocket and its peers FINN.no,, DBA, Bilbasen, Tori and Oikotie, get to help millions of people nd their dream job, home, or a great second-hand deal every day.
Our mission at Blocket and Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces is simple to define but full of hard problems to solve In order to do this we have one simple principle at the core of our strategic thinking: People first.
This is easy to say obviously, but we want to foster a mindset where curiosity, tinkering, experimenting and learning as well as teaching are core parts of our every day at work. We will provide you with the resources you need to develop your skills further, because we believe that the best solutions are built when we focus on mastering and extending our toolboxes.
And while Blocket today may seem like old news, we are quietly and diligently working away behind the scenes towards something truly innovative and full of fascinating possibilities: a Blocket that has the flexibility and longevity to make us all proud, built on the best technology and with the best people we can find.
Without people there are no ideas, and without ideas no innovation.

The Second-hand effect
What are you waiting for? There’s a place for you in the Greenhouse and at our tables. We welcome your voice, whoever you might be, because we know that it’s all of us together that will end up changing the world.
Blocket hosts 5M visitors every week and the value of advertisements at Blocket is equal to 15% of Sweden’s GDP. This all brings us to the outcome, where Blocket together with its users avoids 0.8 million tonnes of greenhouse gases every year, the output being equivalent to if Stockholm’s city roads stood empty for about a year. This is what we call meaningful work!
Diversity & Inclusion
We believe in accountability and transparency about the diversity and inclusion non-stop journey we’re on. Diversity is nothing without inclusion. And nothing of it is anything if there is no culture of trust to speak up. In order to help us on the road we have written down a statement, our why, and a direction.
Blocket’s sustainable heartbeat – our D&I why
Our products are for everyone and so is our working environment. That is why a diverse and inclusive culture is a necessity for innovation and continued growth. Also – being fair and equal feels good in our hearts.
Blocket’s D&I map and compass – our direction
We will be a diverse and inclusive environment, where everyone feels safe to speak up, contribute to innovation and where togetherness is everything both in failing and winning. The greatest ideas are born out of a mix of voices.
D&I in numbers
Since we are a company made of data, and in love with data – we of course measure everything. We have a strong commitment to D&I and believe it’s essential for us to create next generations marketplaces. For that we have a D&I team with a mission to make sure that D&I is in everything we do, everything we breathe – everything we produce.

*Carbon dioxide equivalents or CO2e is a measurement of greenhouse gas emissions which takes into account that different gases contributes differently to the greenhouse effect and global warming. When a certain greenhouse gas is expressed in carbon dioxide equivalents, it indicates how much carbon dioxide is needed to be emitted in order to have the same effect on the climate. For example, when the emissions of a certain greenhouse gas is expressed in emissions per tonne, 1 tonne methane corresponds to 21 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents, since methane contributes 21 times more to the greenhouse effect compared to carbon dioxide.
