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.

We’re looking for an experienced Content Designer to work alongside a stellar team of fellow design thinkers. You'll partner with designers, researchers, marketers, and product managers to define and create a top-notch experience for users.

As a member of the Content Design team, you'll participate in workshops to help elevate your peers' solutions, help define best practices and systems to scale our team, and advocate for the discipline across Lyft (and beyond!).


  • Solve sticky problems with human-centered design thinking, and communicate solutions with language and storytelling
  • Translate complicated concepts into clear in-product copy with empathy and creativity, remembering that there is rarely one “right” answer
  • Navigate ambiguity; not all projects will be clearly defined and it will be up to you to make sense of what’s unsaid
  • Collaborate with designers, researchers, engineers, marketers, data science, product managers, and other stakeholders across tech and ops
  • Manage multiple projects and competing priorities, keeping stakeholders up-to-date
  • Create, maintain, and evolve content guidelines
  • Champion the Lyft brand voice and style
  • Help establish product strategy and vision


  • 4+ years of content design related experience, and exceptional writing abilities
  • A thorough understanding of UX principles, microcopy, and content design principles
  • A systems mind that considers not just copy, but the end-to-end user experience
  • Ability to understand and discuss strategy, metrics, and results
  • Experience with design tools (e.g. Figma)
  • Knowledge of accessibility and ESL best practices
  • A collaborative, proactive, growth mindset
  • Ability to approach work with curiosity, humor, and humility

Even if you don't directly have the skills above, please consider applying. We know talent takes many different shapes.
