The Superblocks Vision

Every person should have the means to bring their ideas to life. We empower the visionaries of the decentralized future to build their things. We do this by providing them with the best open source accessible tools where individuals can collaborate, share, and build upon each other’s creations.

The Superblocks Culture

With an organization full of people passionate about decentralization, it would be silly if we ran a strict top-down hierarchical organization. At Superblocks you help us set your own role, your own goals, and what hours of the day you work. We encourage employees every now and then to take the time to indulge in learning and often mastering a specific technique, be it for pure joy or another reason. Consequently, we consider the hiring process as the number one priority to ensure that all employees share our vision and can manage their own performance. 

You may have heard that our enigmatic founder Thomas created Superblocks whilst living in the Swedish forest coding (full story here). Hence, it is not by coincidence that a lot of us that work at Superblocks are fans of the outdoor whether it involves hiking, climbing, or just the sense of being immersed in nature. We encourage our employees to “work from nature” and regard Stockholm with its beautiful archipelago as our central hub. The only requirement is that you must share each adventure by writing a blog post for our medium account! 😉 

Of course, we also expect everyone at Superblocks to have at least one Superpower!
