Director of Communications, Driver

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 is hiring a director to lead communications across our driver audiences, with a focus on earned-media campaigns and grassroots community-building. Reporting to the VP Communications, you will set strategy, shape multi-audience messaging, execute innovative tactics and help make Lyft the preferred brand for rideshare drivers across the U.S. and Canada.

We’ll expect you to tell us what to do to achieve our brand awareness and growth goals. You have ideas that go beyond traditional PR — including community-organizing and grassroots activations. You’re always thinking outside the box but also an expert at scalable, block-and-tackle programs. People who have worked with you love you. You’re not an individual contributor; you love managing and helping teammates achieve their own goals, too.
