Local Analytics Managers (LAMs) partner with General Managers at Lyft to drive growth, improve efficiency, and influence long-term strategy through data and analytics. You will be responsible for analyzing a large amount of data, developing insights, and making recommendations on how we grow our markets and provide the best user experiences. These actionable recommendations will be both strategic as well as tactical, and influence how Lyft invests millions of dollars.

You will work with multiple cross-functional stakeholders, and influence all aspects of running and growing a market across passengers, drivers and marketplace balance.
