Architecture & Design Manager

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 Lyft Retail Development team is looking for talented designers to help us design Driver Hubs,  Vehicle Service Centers, Bikes and Scooters Warehouses. Imagine beautifully branded spaces throughout our cities where Lyft drivers can have their car serviced, get support from friendly Lyft staff, connect with other drivers, and invest in themselves. We envision community centers with cafes, training areas, event space and much more. Someday, these centers will likely support both our human driver community and our fleet of autonomous vehicles.  The possibilities are endless and the plans are only in their infancy, so we are looking for talented, dynamic individuals to help us bring this vision to reality.
