Become a leader at Lyft
The Associate Product Manager (APM) program is an 18-month rotational program designed to accelerate the careers of exceptional new product managers. You will learn the fundamentals of product development and leadership within a supportive team and community. You will grow and nurture long-lasting and meaningful relationships, work on impactful projects, and inspire others to achieve shared goals.
We aim to build Lyft's next generation of product leaders. We're looking for a small group of mission-driven people, excited to have huge impact in building the world's best transportation.
APM PROGRAM CORE VALUES
You’ll be matched with senior leaders in our Product org to support your growth as a PM. You’ll partner with PMs and cross-functional leaders across Lyft as you stretch your skills on different projects during the program.
You should have a growth mindset, be hungry to learn, and proactively seek feedback.
You’ll complete two rotations while in the program. Each rotation, you’ll work with a different product team to deliver a project that brings real value to our customers and our business.
You will be a mission-driven, goal-oriented leader.
You’ll get to be a part of a tight-knit group of individuals who will support, learn, and grow together. The APM program is designed to foster a strong sense of community, and help build lifelong connections.
You believe that teamwork makes the dream work. You work ambitiously and collaboratively in pursuit of greater goals.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Application & Program Timelines
Applications for the Fall 2023 class of APMs are now closed.
PMs at Lyft have a broad set of skills that capture the ability to execute on a vision, lead cross-functionally, and exhibit strong technical aptitude.
Our APMs are scrappy and resourceful. They learn quickly, work collaboratively, and optimize for impact. If you love working in ambiguity and enjoy being constantly challenged beyond your comfort zone, you will thrive in Lyft’s APM program.
APMs will go through a typical product manager interview cycle that aims to discover the primary skills we are looking for in PMs.

MEET THE APMS
“I joined Lyft to help redesign cities around people instead of cars, which I’m now doing in the Autonomous Vehicles team. After graduating from the program, I became an APM rotation manager, which was a great chance for me to grow and give back to the APM community.”
— Phil Mizrahi
APM Class of 2019. Current Team: Lyft Autonomous
“I’ve been able to work on an incredibly diverse range of projects while at Lyft, including hardware and software projects. One month I was working with mechanical engineers to improve bike stations in NYC, and the next I was thinking about ways to recognize and appreciate drivers.”
— Sabrina Long
APM Class of 2020. Current Team: Driver Growth
“During my first rotation, my manager thought that I was ready for more scope, and gave me full ownership of the team. Having the responsibilities of an actual PM with the support system that the APM program provides is the perfect recipe for career and personal growth.”
