At Lyft, community is what we are and it’s what we do. It’s what makes us different. To create the best ride for all, we start in our own community by creating an open, inclusive, and diverse organization where all team members are recognized for what they bring.

The mission for our Growth Platforms teams is to enable communications, incentives and paid marketing activities to be an extension of the Lyft product surface, delivering reliably great experiences and insane value for Lyft users. The team builds and maintains a number of core products and tools that enable Lyft to grow faster. In practice, that means we need to engage users with the right message, at the right time, via the right channel. Growth Platforms is comprised of five main pods, but this role will initially be focused on the following two areas:

  • Communications Platform: covers all of Lyft’s communications channels including email, SMS, push notifications and in-app messaging in addition to our in-house messaging orchestration and audience management tool.
  • Organic Growth Products: drives organic growth through inclusive, consistent and discoverable products for riders, drivers, and internal partners. This team intends to serve the tens of millions of new users whose needs aren't met by our native apps through building out our web platform.

Our team is heavily cross-functional as we sit at the intersection between Product, Engineering, Marketing, Operations, Data Science and Machine Learning. As a key team member within Growth Platforms, you’ll own work streams, analyses, modeling, strategy, and business metrics that drive the growth of the communication ecosystem at scale. We are looking for analytical talent to provide insights and actionable recommendations that will drive impact.
