Senior Analyst, Rideshare Planning and Operations (Pricing)

    • San Francisco, CA

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.

The Growth team at Lyft is responsible for accelerating the growth of the business and for hitting our top business/company goals around financials metrics and market share. The team is building automated tools to manage growth levers and these are quickly becoming complex to configure and deploy. Given that Lyft’s business is hyper-regional and sensitive to time of day, local events, weather, and more, this makes things even more complicated.

We are looking for a pricing specialist to develop and implement pricing strategy for specific modes (e.g. Shared, Lux, XL). This role will sit in the Rideshare Planning and Operations team and responsible for understanding mode-specific dynamics relating to pricing and implementing the appropriate pricing strategy by market. The Pricing Analyst will be involved in both strategy and execution, and you will be critical to the success of the growth operations team. We’re looking for a process-driven individual who has extraordinary attention to detail and a track record of analytical problem solving.

  • Partner cross-functionally with marketing and communications

  • Work closely with product leads to build the most efficient tools, systems, and processes to manage pricing at scale

  • Partner with Data Science to develop experiments and analytics

  • Develop clear communication processes for stakeholders in the field


Experience:

  • BA/BS with 5-7 years experience in consulting, start-up operations, or analytics
