She joined BlaBlaCar in early 2017 and now leads the mobile development and quality assurance teams. She likes her teams to be independent, to own their processes, and to be self-sufficient to a point where they don't need her anymore to deliver high quality software or to organize team-building events like golf or surfing lessons. And yes, she's always up for outside activities as long as she can find a babysitter!
BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading long-distance carpooling platform – a global, trusted community of 100 million members in 22 countries. BlaBlaCar is creating an entirely new, people-powered, travel network that connects people looking to travel long distances with drivers heading the same way, so they can travel together and share the cost. With the recent integration of a coach bus network, and a commuter service for short-distance carpooling, BlaBlaCar aims to become the go-to marketplace for shared mobility.
With a dedicated member relations service, a state of the art web and mobile platform, novel insurance solutions and a fast-growing community, BlaBlaCar is making travel social, cost-effective and practical for millions of members. BlaBlaCar is continuously innovating, developing smart-stop and smart-pricing algorithms that dynamically unlock millions of possible local meeting points and, in effect, turn every highway into a major transport line while also allowing for more granular point-to-point service in less accessible areas. By doubling the number of people in cars (from 1,9 to 3,9 people), BlaBlaCar saved 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 in 2018 (the equivalent of traffic in Paris for a year).
