Company Description

At BlaBlaCar, we imagine a fairer, more open world of travel; where people are given the independence to connect with the places they love - and each other. BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading long-distance carpooling platform – a global, trusted community of 70 million drivers and passengers in 22 countries. With the recent integration of a coach network, our aim is to become the go-to for shared road mobility.

Job Description

Why join us?

Our design team 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 UX 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 UX”.

We’re always investing in our design team, and, today, are looking for a Senior UX Designer to join us.
