Sr. Product Designer - BlaBlaLines
BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading carpooling platform, created with one dream in mind: leveraging technology to fill the millions of empty seats on the road. We offer long- and short-distance carpooling as well as a bus marketplace, with the mission to become the go-to marketplace for shared road mobility.
Today, our community counts over 90 million travellers in 22 countries, creating a smarter, friendlier and carbon-saving transport network. Every year, our community saves 1.6 million tons of CO2e by sharing the road, equivalent to the CO2 emissions generated by Paris traffic in a year. But it doesn’t stop here – our team of 250+ engineers is developing innovative algorithms to further unlock the potential of shared travel and multiply its impact.
We’re looking for people to join our journey – people who care, who are driven by impact and innovation, and who want to thrive in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment. We offer a flexible workplace where we count on each other to take initiative. So join the ride – we can’t wait to see where it takes you.
Why join us?
You would be joining BlaBlaLines, the daily carpooling service by BlaBlaCar. The BlaBlaLines team operates as a startup inside BlaBlaCar. It is organized as an independent team of about 15 people who are passionate about building the best daily carpooling solution.
At BlaBlaLines we have our own mobile apps, our own experience, our own technology stack and we have full autonomy to make decisions in our best interest while benefiting from all of the BlaBlaCar resources.
Do you want to find the perfect product market fit, and change the way we use mobility?
The person who will join us must have a startup mindset, an insane ambition to crack a very difficult problem and those who want to bring freedom, fairness and fraternity to the world of travel.
You'll be part of our BlaBlaCar design team which comes from a variety of countries and backgrounds, yet we all have one thing in common: passion. We’re constantly challenging ourselves - whether it’s a user problem, a small interface bug, or a way of working; we’re always asking how we can make things better.
When asked what they like about working at BlaBlaCar, our Product Designers mention: “We are involved early in projects”, “We rely a lot on data to make decisions,” “We’re designing a service that is actually changing how millions of people travel”, “We dive into fascinating topics like social interactions, trust mechanisms in different countries, value of comfort, or perception of time”, “We save a lot of time by working with our own design system”, “We work in a company with a strong design culture that embraces the value of User Experience”.
We’re always investing in our design team, and today, are looking for a Senior Product Designer to join the BlaBlaLines team.
