What is Poppy?

We’re Poppy, Belgium’s leading shared mobility company, and we’re looking to add new talent to our team.

Today, Poppy provides thousands of members with a viable alternative to traditional car ownership saving them money, time and headaches. Poppy members are making the decision to live car free and enjoy the convenience, savings and environmental benefits of having “wheels when you want them.”  Poppy gives you the freedom to move from A to B, at anytime and anywhere. Your Poppy, your freedom!

As we continue to grow, we’re looking for talented, passionate people with great ideas and outstanding execution skills to join the family in our Brussels or Antwerp office. We aim to create an environment that is as supportive, diverse and fun as our brand. If you’re results-oriented, dedicated, and ready to contribute to an unparalleled experience for our community of forward-thinking members, we encourage you to apply.

We established Poppy operations in Antwerp a bit more than one year ago with great success. In Brussels we are launching a new service in time for the summer.
