Senior Manager, Express Drive Operations

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’s Express Drive program is a key contributor to driver growth, extending our mission of eliminating the need for individual car ownership to our drivers. If you want to drive for Lyft and need a car, Express Drive offers flexible options for you.

The Express Drive team is looking for a talented leader to take the reins across a broad-range of key business functions: our operational deployments with rental car partners (Hertz, Avis Budget Group), field operations, and managing the overall driver experience across every facet of Express Drive.

If you are excited to build a new wave in transportation and help chart the future of the business, we would love to meet you!
