Director, Driver On-Boarding

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 Driver On-Boarding Team’s mission is to get every driver applicant through the funnel in a friction free way by making it easier than ever to get on the road. Our team is heavily cross-functional as we sit at the intersection between Product, Marketing, Ops and Driver Support. We are split into two primary teams: one focused on a concierge on-boarding experience for the driver, and the other focused on making sure all systems are functioning according to plan.

As a leader on the Driver On-boarding team, you’ll set the strategy that drives decisions across Operations, Product, Marketing, and Finance. We are building a Concierge On-boarding program for our drivers that provides them personalized direct access to Lyft.  You’ll be expected lead the analytical strategic thinking behind what motivates drivers to get on the road and identify how our agent teams should communicate. If you are motivated by determining what matters most and executing on those insights, this is the role for you!
