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

I applied online. I interviewed at Lyft.
Pretty Professional and smooth interview process.
Had a initial recruiter phone call and after that was scheduled to speak to one of the Senior engineers over on their team.
The interview was difficult. There were 2 questions asked in the interview on coderpad.
1.) A small android challenge. Some basic questions about Android and then a deep-dive into a specific topic. Over here looks like the interviewer was looking for a specific answer and i was finding it hard to gauge what he was exactly looking for, in the end he gave me the hint and then i answered.
2.) Coding question. This was a difficult problem to solve. Think about leetcode hard. And he was very specific about what he wanted.
The question was to implement a LRU cache but for the backing data structure only an ArrayList can be used. It is solvable if there is another data structure like a hashmap which you can use or obviously a queue(which kinda beats the point) but a single arraylist was tricky to implement in 25-30 mins and that too a working solution which passes the test cases the interviewer had got with him.
