About BlaBlaCar

By sharing rides and filling empty seats on the road, our community avoids 1.6 million tons of CO2 emissions every year (as if Paris was free of road traffic for a year!)
We are a global and diverse team of 700+ people with 45+ nationalities, and headquartered in Paris. We’re constantly looking for new ways to leverage technology to create a more affordable, convenient, flexible and sustainable way to travel. And we are always on the lookout for people who care about making a positive impact.

Why join us?

In Europe, bus transport is subject to obtaining authorization (domestic and international). These authorizations are accepted within 2 to 4 months from the ministries of the French and European Countries. As part of the preparation of the 2024 network, an increased number of authorizations will have to be sent.

This is an opportunity for an intern to discover the business, the design, and the development of a bus network.
