To understand our members better and have empathy for their needs, we must be on the road with them. We are active users of our service and members of our community.
We make a point of learning and growing collectively as a team. We build internal knowledge, share learnings across teams and with the rest of the ecosystem.
Innovation is about taking risks and accepting that failure is part of the story. Everyone is encouraged to take calculated risks, and to openly communicate their failures, big or small, so we can collectively learn and be stronger as a result.
We dared to dream of a travel solution that didn’t exist. With dreaming comes a time to make bold decisions, and the diligence to deliver. This is how we structure our decision-making.
Being lean means that as a company, we manage our resources efficiently to sustain our long-term growth. In our product, we aim for simplicity to offer a seamless user and travel experience.
When you take what you do at heart, and work seriously, there is room for everyone to have fun together. We take fun very seriously.
Once a year, we step away from the office and dedicate a day to community service in nature and in our local communities. From urban gardening and trash clean ups to renovating daycare centres and helping high schoolers with their resumes.
Every Monday, we get together for a BlaBlaTalk, an opportunity for a team to share their latest projects with the rest of the company. Every quarter, we receive an update from our CEO on how the company is going and what's ahead.
BlaBlaBreakfast, yoga classes, afterworks, street art workshops... The list of activities at our offices goes on. From recurrent ones such as BlaBlaSport groups to seasonal events such as the Festa Junina or our yearly summer party in Paris.
Every year, we dedicate a full day to test our product around the globe and Be The Member. Our teams hit the road as passengers or drivers and gather feedback to help our product team improve our carpool and bus services.
"At BlaBlaCar, my day can be productive and fun at the same time."
