Welcome to Lyft

Learn about Lyft culture, some of our favorite parts of working here, and what being at a mission-driven company looks like.

Benefits & Perks

An important part of Lyft culture is treating our team members well with excellent benefits and sweet, sweet perks. (Bananas, yogurt, energy bars...)


Health & Well-being

Lyft offers a range of generous 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 Lyra Health partnership. We’ve also got plenty of office snacks to keep you well-fueled, because thinking is hungry work.

Time Off

Work/life balance is important. 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 employees are offered unlimited paid vacation. (Yep, you read that right.) Our full-time, hourly employees get generous time off too.

Commute & Transportation

US employees receive Lyft ride discounts every month. We also provide pre-tax commuter benefits and cover up to $130 per month toward commuting costs.

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

We’re cultivating an environment where we continuously learn, innovate, and make it happen together. Grow your career and feed your curiosity with access to cutting edge learning tools and resources, including a subscription to Udemy.

Financial Planning

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.

Parental Leave

Lyft is proud to offer new parents 18 weeks of paid time away. You can take it all at once, or in one-week increments. Biological, adoptive, and foster parents are all eligible.

We're hiring ... everywhere

We’ve got over 45 Lyft offices and while each one is unique, they’re all designed with comfy spots to work and hang out, grab a drink or a snack, and the best co-workers you’ll ever have.
