Lyft – Why Work For Us?

Ride by ride, we’re changing the way our world works. We imagine a world where cities feel small again. Where transportation and tech bring people together, instead of apart. We see the future as community-driven — and it starts with you.










Lyft offers great medical, dental, and vision insurance, and covers 50% of premiums for dependents. Team members can also enroll in our 401k program.


We believe that work/life balance is important, so we instituted unlimited vacation days for exempt team members. Non-exempt team members have 15 days of paid vacation, 5 sick days, and 10 paid holidays.


Team members get $100 in free Lyft credits each month. We also reimbuse Clipper cards up to $130 per month to cover commuting costs.


Our beautiful office is situated in the heart of San Francisco’s vibrant and sunny Mission District. Within blocks, you can grab coffee from Blue Bottle or Sightglass, or pop into Flour + Water for dinner. We also recommend taking in the view from our roofdeck!


The tight-knit Lyft team can often be found together, whether at bi-weekly team meetings, recreational sports league matches, or community hangouts. We’re also a dog-friendly office, so canine friends are welcome too.

Food & Snacks

We provide fresh and healthy lunch five days a week, and keep our kitchens fully stocked with delicious food and beverages to keep snack attacks at bay. Our most sacred traditions? Bagel Wednesdays.

    Fraud Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lyft (San Francisco, CA).


    Moved relatively fast. Disorganized, haphazard. Felt like no one was really involved in the process. Spoke to a recruiter for ten minutes, then asked to come in for an onsite. Onsite was rushed, clearly not planned well or considered, and I felt distinctly unwelcome. Most of the time, I get at least a cursory office tour and at least some attempt to make me feel welcome--none of that here. Was later given a offer for a contract, which was withdrawn mere hours after being given. The least professional and most unpleasant interviewing process I've ever gone through.

    Lyft's CEO on Creating a Great Company Culture

    Editor's note: Managing human beings is one of the toughest jobs you'll ever face, especially as your team grows. We spoke with six founders about what works (and what doesn't). The more employees a company has, the less likely any one gets noticed. And when employees don't feel individually responsible for the company's success, things slow down.
