About Bolides

Bolides started out in 2013 as a car share operator introducing a number of innovations that were easily picked up by a new audience that never shared cars before. The smartphone as a virtual key, free floating parking and pay on use are features that have become the norm among new car sharing operations.

In 2016 Bolides received a grant from the Flemish government to further develop its technology as a platform, upon which third parties can deploy their own car sharing schemes.

Today the platform hosts several “cars as a service” applications with company pool cars, demo cars and publicly shared cars. We proudly serve clients such as EY, Siemens, Leasys, Athlon, Mercedes, BMW...


We are looking for an Application Engineer who masters the Bolides platform from the backend up to the mobile frontend, with a notion of the in-house developed hardware.
