At Lyft, our mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. To do this, we start with our own community by creating an open, inclusive, and diverse organization.

Lyft connects people to transportation to change the way we live and get around our communities.

The Product Manager, Road Safety and Telematics will have full responsibility for developing features, platforms, models, and capabilities to proactively identify and prevent the key sources of risk on the Lyft platform.
