Lyft Building

THE LYFT GUIDE TO MAKING IT HAPPEN

Wow our customers

Wow our customers

We’re all on the front lines of customer service, no matter what role we’re in. We go above and beyond to serve others with high-quality products and hospitality they can rely on. We work hard to leave our customers with a smile.

All-in ownership

All-in ownership

We have grit. There is no job too small nor challenge too big. We are all-in. We think long term and always optimize for Lyft as a whole. We never say, “that’s not my job.”

Take care of each other

Take care of each other

We create an inclusive environment where everyone is safe to be themselves. We build trust by listening attentively, speaking candidly, and treating others respectfully. We have each other’s backs.

Create fearlessly

Create fearlessly

We have a bias for action and we value taking bold, calculated risks. We move fast and don’t make customers wait. When we fail, we learn from it, adjust, and try again.

Take pride, be humble

Take pride, be humble

We take pride in our work and whatever we do, we do it well. We assess our own work critically and we’re the first to call out our shortcomings. We continuously push ourselves and others to improve and set a higher bar.

Build great teams

Build great teams

We recruit, and develop exceptional talent. We collaborate and combine our powers to accomplish more than we could do alone.

Disagree & commit

Disagree & commit

We engage in thoughtful, direct, and respectful debate, even when it’s uncomfortable. Once we land a decision, we commit fully and move forward.

Dive deep

Dive deep

We stay connected to all the details, audit frequently, and continually seek deeper insights. We don’t take anything at face value and are skeptical when metrics and anecdotes differ.

Inspire

Inspire

We start with a big compelling vision, and work backwards to create and communicate a clear plan. We rally those around us and accomplish what others see as impossible.

Deliver impact

Deliver impact

While all the ingredients matter, we know that it’s the end result that counts. We carefully prioritize our time and resources to get the greatest impact for the customer and our mission. Despite setbacks, we rise to the occasion, and can be counted on to deliver results on time.

Benefits & Perks


Health & Well-being

Lyft offers a range of well-being benefits, including great medical, dental, and vision insurance options. We support physical well-being covering One Medical membership fees where it’s available. And we care about your mental and emotional well-being, offering free access to licensed therapists for all US Employees (and their dependents) through our Modern Health partnership.

Time Off

We've got you covered when you need time off to be with family, treat a medical condition, take a dream vacation, or just recharge. In addition to observed holidays, salaried US employees are offered unlimited paid vacation. Our full-time, hourly employees get generous time off too.

Commute & Transportation

US employees receive free Lyft Pink memberships. We also provide pre-tax commuter benefits.

Community

Lyft employees are smart, funny people, who aren’t afraid to share their ideas, admit when they don’t know something, and are always willing to help. We have offsites to catch the game, volunteer during Community Week, or just grab a meal together. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) foster diversity and inclusion. We connect over coffee-walks. Plus, many of our offices are dog-friendly.

Learning

It’s easy saving for retirement with our 401(k) plan, plus we have financial training sessions to help you make smart decisions for the future.
