The scope includes the full spectrum of BlaBlaCar products: BlaBlaCar app, BlaBlaCar Daily (commuting), BlaBlaCar Zen (short-distance), and internal tools (e.g. Customer Support or Bus driver boarding).

Your responsibilities

  • Advocate for the value of design in achieving business goals.

Your qualifications
