Regional Director - West

Lyft, San Francisco, CA

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

General Managers are the engines of Lyft’s growth and the Regional Directors are responsible for running those engines at peak performance. The West Coast Regional Director is responsible for managing 5 GMs, more than a third of Lyft’s P&L, and guiding Lyft’s world-changing vision.

To pull off this massive undertaking, you’ll need to be a natural leader, ruthless prioritizer, and non-stop builder. We are looking for seasoned executives with a track record of managing large P&Ls, scaling businesses, and developing top talent. You’ll be the glue that connects GM’s to HQ and vice versa. To do that, you’ll need to build strong relationships with your remote teams and even stronger relationships with your cross-functional partners at HQ. Expect 8-12 days of travel per month to stay in touch with your remote teams and their local businesses.

The West Coast Regional Director will be based in Lyft’s San Francisco headquarters, reporting to the VP of Global Operations.

  • Managing 5 local GMs
  • Synthesizing market feedback for product, marketing, operations, and other HQ teams
  • Executing large-scale initiatives in and across Lyft markets

  • Prior P&L responsibility
  • A track record of quantitative decision-making (finance, management consulting, data science, engineering, etc.)
  • Experience managing large (10+), matrixed teams
  • An inspirational leader who doesn't need in-person interaction to influence and affect change
