Lyft – Why Work For Us?

The Lyft team volunteers during the annual Community Day

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. 

We're looking for smart, talented, and passionate people to join our growing team and help us build the real-time transportation network of the future. 

Our Story

Founded in San Francisco, California in 2012, Lyft connects passengers to friendly, affordable rides at the tap of a button. United by chance through a mutual friend, co-founders John Zimmer and Logan Green bonded over the shared idea to change transportation for the better.

Now available in over 200 cities nationwide, and with international partnerships reaching across the globe, Lyft is a one-of-a-kind community working to achieve our mission: to improve people's lives through the world's best transportation. 

At Lyft, we're building a culture where we live authentically, invest in community, think outside the box, and #MakeItHappen together.

2017 is going to be epic. We're planning to launch in 100 new US cities by the end of the year, and we want you along for the ride! 

Lyft team members volunteer together during the annual Community Day event

Our core values help define what it means to act like a Lyft team member:  

  • #BeYourself Great communities start with great individuals. Live authentically and trust your voice.  
  • #CreateFearlessly  Challenge convention, take risks, and make an impact. If it's broken, fix it. If it doesn't exist, invent it.  
  • #UpLiftOthers Invest in kindness and always put community first. Deliver delight and be a force for good. 
  • #MakeItHappen Now. Life is short. Live up front. 

Lyft team members celebrate during a Field Day event

Our mantra: If it's broken, fix it. If it doesn't exist, invent it. And we’re looking for talented individuals to join our team.

At Lyft, we challenge convention, take risks, and are here to make an impact. We’ve got powerful data at our fingertips and an amazing community at our backs. The engineering problems our team takes on are changing the face of transportation — in cities, in our app, and beyond.

Ride by ride, we’re changing the way our world works. Join us!
