Lyft, San Francisco, CA

Lyft is your friend with a car, whenever you need one

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 a seasoned real estate strategist to help guide the expansion of our retail presence. Imagine beautifully branded spaces throughout our cities where Lyft drivers can fuel up, get their car serviced, get support from friendly Lyft staff, connect with other drivers, and invest in themselves. We envision community centers with cafes, meditation rooms, nap pods, and more. Someday, these centers will likely support both our human driver community and our fleet of autonomous vehicles.

The possibilities are endless but the plans are only in their infancy. We require an expert who is passionate about retail, data-driven decision making and excited to immerse themselves in the driver experience. The ideal candidate is an analytic superhero with an entrepreneur’s spirit.

Lyft has always stood at the intersection of the digital and the physical. If you’re fired up to bring our passion for drivers into the retail world, we want to hear from you. This role is based in San Francisco and reports to the Director of Retail Development.
