General Manager - Vancouver

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 looking for proven leaders who want to revolutionize transportation to take the reins on our most strategic markets. This job is not for the faint-hearted. General Managers own the P&L for their market, which means responsibility for driver and passenger acquisition, local operations, and service quality. Market growth, strategic direction, difficult trade-offs… the buck stops with you. As the General Manager you will report to the VP, Lyft Canada.

Luckily, you’ll also have a phenomenal team behind you. Back in Toronto and our HQ in San Francisco, you will work closely with Lyft’s subject matter experts for product, engagement, online acquisition, brand, and more.

The bar is already extremely high, but we raise it an extra notch to find someone who shares Lyft’s vision of the future. At Lyft, we believe that transportation should be so convenient, it’s magical; we believe that transportation has the potential to connect communities and change lives. If that’s a vision you want to turn into reality, then we want to meet you.
