Company Description

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.

Job Description

Please include a portfolio for consideration.

 

Design Systems are at the core of the BlaBlaCar design, tech and product culture. They not only help create more intuitive and consistent experiences for our users, but also help our teams work more effectively, and deliver faster. Every page we touch, every experience we imagine, is built upon Pixar, our second generation of Design System.
Working hand in hand with your product and tech partners you will be in charge of:

  • maintaining the system library integrity
  • leading design reviews with other teams to ensure design system compliance
  • designing new components or necessary evolutions
  • anticipate needs and build the future system generation 


 

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 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 UX”.

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