At Lyft, our mission is to improve peoples lives with the worlds best transportation. To do this, we start with our own community by creating an open, inclusive, & diverse organization.
And we also need to have the worlds best map.
The Mapping team at Lyft is tasked with building a digital representation of the physical world - a map. We collect & serve the freshest & most accurate mapping data possible, along with algorithms, models, platform services, & map-based user experiences that power Lyfts current & future transportation offerings.
Mapping represents a huge opportunity for Lyfts business, but also a big challenge. We build & scale systems that deal with large data storage, real-time data processing, machine / deep learning pipelines, routing & ETA models, driver & passenger location tracking, & more. We built beautiful & magical user experiences on top of all those services, & compete with companies that have been in the mapping business for decades.
Our engineering team is growing rapidly, & we are looking for Engineering Managers to help us scale. Our engineers are smart, flexible, & love solving difficult challenges. They look to their managers for organizational transparency, career development, mentorship, & honest feedback. They move fast & ship code to production continuously, relying on their leadership to increase productivity by removing obstacles & keeping processes lean.
