About BlaBlaCar

We bring freedom, fairness and fraternity to the world of travel.

Job Description

BlaBlaCar’s vision is to bring fairness, freedom and fraternity to the world of travel. 

BlaBlaCar was created in 2006 with one dream in mind: fill the millions of empty seats on the road to create an efficient, affordable and friendly way to travel. Today, our global, trusted community counts 90 million members in 22 countries, enabling a smarter, large scale and truly sustainable transport network. 

Born from a simple idea of people sharing their rides, BlaBlaCar’s ambition is to become the go-to marketplace for shared road mobility. We offer a long-distance carpooling service, a commuting carpooling service, and a long-distance bus service. A filled bus emits one third of the emissions per passenger kilometer as an average car -- so we want to fill those seats too! 

In 2019, 100 million travelers used BlaBlaCar globally, saving 1.6 million tons of CO2. Meanwhile, we enabled human connections, bringing people closer together in more ways than one, with 87% of members believing carpooling to be an enriching experience. 

BlaBlaCar offers a unique international environment with a team counting 40 nationalities, serving a global member-base from 7 offices in Berlin, Kyiv, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Paris (HQ), São Paulo and Warsaw. English is the official spoken language across BlaBlaCar. We are privately-held and founder-led. Our team of 500 employees is entrepreneurial, passionate and fundamentally mission-driven.

Job Description

About the Demand Product Team

The Demand Product team’s mission is to make BlaBlaCar the GoTo app to book a long distance shared ride. We’re building the whole experience for our passengers from the moment they look for a trip to the end of it. We’re looking at topics such as Acquisition, SEO, Search experience or booking. We aim at making all of those the most efficient and simple experiences possible.

About the Search

The Search team is responsible for helping users finding the trip that is best for them. That team is facing today one of the most exciting challenges it has ever seen. With our expansion to new modes of transports, we must completely revamp the way people search for a trip on BlaBlaCar so that it becomes super easy to book a carpool, a bus, or tomorrow a train all in the same app. We’ve done the first steps of that change, but the path is long and full of unknowns. 

About the Role

As the Product Manager for Search, you’ll be responsible for building the best-in-industry experience to look for a trip and select it. Embedded in a squad, working with senior engineers, Product Designer and supported by our Product Data team, you’ll have to build the future of our search experience. You will own the full Search XP from the strategy definition to the roadmap and shipping features. Your mission will be to make it a smooth and efficient one.

Examples of challenges:

  • How do we enable users to book a return trip mixing carpool and buses?
  • Which information should be highlighted within Search to maximize conversion? 
  • Should we (and how) adapt our UX for the desktop product to boost its performance?

What you will directly contribute to

  • Gather insights about our users and translating them into actionable opportunities that would improve our Search XP
  • Define the strategy and associated ambition for our Search
  • Build the associate roadmap to deliver it
  • Partner with Engineering, Product Data, and Product Design team within a squad to execute the roadmap
  • Communicate on the team plan and  achievements within BlaBlaCar


What you will need to be successful:

  • +4 years of experience in product-driven organizations, delivering highly successful products
  • Strong understanding and interest in UX-oriented topics - If you’re a designer willing to become a PM, that job might be for you!
  • Ability to play with data and A/B testing
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Humility and excellent listening skills
  • Fluency in English
