Job Description

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.

Lyft's engineering team is growing rapidly, and we are looking for engineering managers to help us scale. Our engineers are curious and love solving difficult challenges. They look to their managers for transparency, career development, mentorship, and honest feedback. They move fast and ship code to production continuously, relying on their leadership to increase productivity by removing obstacles and keeping processes lean. Our engineering managers are people with varying technical backgrounds and interests -- some are involved in the technical details of their team and others provide general technical direction and oversight. As managers, our job is to keep teams motivated and working on the right goals. We build teams that are inclusive, helpful, and have a sense of ownership for the things they build.
