Lyft – Why Work For Us?

Welcome to the Lyft office!

Our Story

At Lyft, we’re reimagining the world’s best transportation. We envision 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.

Community is who we are, it’s what we do, and it’s what makes us different. To create the best ride for all, we start in our own community, by creating an open, inclusive and diverse organization where all team members belong.

We believe in a future where self-driving cars make transportation safer and more accessible for everyone. With fewer cars on the road and less pollution in the air, we can reshape cities around people instead of cars. That’s why we’re building a world-class self-driving system, and making sure the most exciting technology breakthroughs are applied to improving transportation.

Team members collaborating

    I have been working at Lyft (More than a year)


    Employees value one another and work together as one team to accomplish goals and drive results as we support our internal and external customers. Work/life balance, great benefits, empowering culture, innovative and creative co-workers working alongside you - and the ability to truly partner to create and influence and leave your mark - just to name a few!


    Lyft is located in downtown Nashville, parking is available and traffic can be heavier at times, something to consider

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing - continue to empower and upLYFT your employees and our customers to reach out fullest potential and drive creative solutions.

    Community Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Boston, MA) in June 2016.


    Had an HR screening then an on site 1.5 hour interview with three different people. Someone currently serving in the role I was applying for, the manager I would report to and then the GM. The whole process was very quick and thorough. All of the interviewers were very nice and seemed more interested in getting to know me as a person.
