Blok is on a mission to build the best possible customer experience in selling & buying a home. We see the traditional real estate agencies as archaic and their paper pushing is so 90s.

A background in consulting or high growth startups is a big bonus.

  • You’ll need to establish and execute a strategy for growth in Sweden while managing your P&L and taking care of the efficiency, profitability and scalability
  • You’ll be negotiating partnerships and creating mutual opportunities between Blok and other players in the market.

  • You’ll be refining the processes and get better and better while sharing your learnings with the HQ and eventual other markets.
  • You'll be our face for the Swedish market and this position does require you to be a native Swedish speaker.
