At Lyft, our mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. To do this, we start with our own community by creating an open, inclusive, and diverse organization.

Here at Lyft, Data is the only way we make decisions. It is the core of our business, helping us create a transportation experience for our customers and providing insights into our product launch & features' effectiveness.

Also, Data is at the heart of Lyft as a platform. We collect and process thousands of terabytes of data from various sources and use it to generate real-time traffic estimations, make correct and efficient routing decisions, and determine better pickup and drop-off locations for our passengers. Making this data accessible and useful to everyone at Lyft requires tackling data infrastructure, data engineering, and computing challenges. And now we are looking for experienced data engineers to join us!
