Lyft connects people to transportation to change the way we live and get around our communities. We are looking for product managers who bring exceptional creative, strategic, and analytical skills to drive forward a best in class product. Product managers at Lyft lead the integration of engineering, data science, and design to achieve the company’s vision of reinventing transportation. We are looking for entrepreneurial and passionate product managers to innovate and execute across a rapidly growing, fast paced company and industry.

Within this team, we’re hiring a PM lead to own a critical, high growth area of the Rider app. This PM’s scope represents a large portion of core rider experience used by millions of users everyday.
