About BlaBlaCar

BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading community-based travel app enabling 26 million members a year to carpool or travel by bus in 21 countries. Our team of 700+ employees counts over 50 nationalities and is spread across our 6 global offices, 30% working fully remotely.


Your Mission


BlaBlaCar is seeking a Senior Android Engineer to join a new team building a brand new product from scratch - Door to door. As the unique Android engineer within the team, you will play a key role in designing and implementing the product’s mobile infrastructure & features. You will work closely with the engineering manager, product manager, product designer, and other engineers to ensure that the product meets hard business deadlines while enabling fast iteration and anticipating long-term scalability.


Why should you apply for this role?


Joining the door to door team is an opportunity to be a core contributor to the future of carpooling! Our goal is to build a new “door-to-door” product, replicating the convenience of owning a car without ownership. This product is addressed to a new passenger audience that doesn’t consider carpooling today and is the way to continue growing carpooling worldwide and delivering on our our #zeroemptyseats mission. Our first use case focuses on the last-mile: once you reach a train station, how do you get to your final destination? Passengers are facing transportation solutions that are either too expensive (taxi, car rentals) or too uncertain (regional buses). There’s a huge space for a carpooling product that picks you up when your train arrives and drops you at your exact destination!  

By joining our team, you will be at the forefront of innovation and contribute to a greater cause. Let’s build something amazing together!

Your responsibilities
  • Design, architect and develop features for the application
  • Collaborate with non-technical stakeholders to help shape the features that land in production. This implies constant back and forth with product & design stakeholders, in order to identify the most optimal approaches toward time to market of our features.
  • Be responsible for the quality of the application, and contribute to improving it
  • Improve the tooling and the CI/CD pipeline
  • Share your knowledge in the team: provide documentation on your work, enforce good practices and processes, communicate on changes
  • Work closely with the iOS and backend engineers to ensure alignment on the technical approach and architecture decisions
  • Maintain communication, transparency and alignment on good development practices with the BlaBlaCar Android chapter


Your qualifications
  • At least 5 years of professional experience in Android engineering
  • Strong knowledge of service oriented architecture and architectural patterns
  • Strong agility & business prioritization skills: you should have a trial and error mindset. We’ll have to try things, learn from them, and potentially discard some ideas on the road.
  • Hands-on experience with developer tools like Git, Firebase, Jenkins and monitoring solutions (Datadog)
  • You have excellent communication skills and enjoy sharing & learning from others
  • You have the ability to prioritize and to find a good balance between fast iterations and quality of delivery
  • You are comfortable with the idea of being the unique Android engineer in the team, while embracing the challenge of not being an isolated engineer. This implies identifying innovative approaches to ensure your technical choices remain challenged and the quality of your code matches BlaBlaCar’s standards.
  • Fluency in English
  • A general knowledge of the BlaBlaCar platform is a plus (understanding of our service oriented architecture and the different domains we cover like authentication, payment, carpool inventory, …)


If you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications outlined above, tell us why you’d still be a great fit for this role in your application!
