Lyft, San Francisco, CA

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

Lyft’s mission is to create the real-time transportation network of the future. The Lyft Developer Platform is a crucial part of that mission - we provide the technology, tools, and support necessary for developers to tap into this network and ultimately create fantastic experiences for our drivers and riders.

As a Partner Engineer on the Developer Platform team, you’ll be the platform expert responsible for supporting our most strategic partners. This is a highly cross-functional role where you’ll work closely with others in Engineering, Product, Business Development, Enterprise, and Operations -  all with the goal of making our partners successful.

What You'll Do

  • Own the technical aspect of the partnership, from the ideation phase, to development, to launch of their integration, and beyond. Whether that’s in-person, over video chat, or digging into a challenging debugging session over email - you’ll be the face of the platform for our partners.
  • Work directly with our API Engineering team to ensure the voice of the partner is heard by influencing our API and SDK product roadmap.
  • Design REST APIs that are easy to use and consistent.
  • Opportunity to leverage your technical, product, and business skills on a daily basis.

Desired Skills & Experience

  • 5+ years of software development experience building web and/or mobile applications.
  • Strong understanding of REST APIs, SDKs, HTTP, and OAuth.
  • Solid communication skills; ability to effectively communicate technical concepts to both engineers and non-engineers.
  • Ability to manage your responsibilities across many different aspects of the platform, from fostering partner relationships, to debugging, to designing APIs.
  • Passion for APIs and Platforms; understand what makes a great RESTful API.
  • You love helping people, particularly developers.
  • Previous experience as a partner engineer, developer advocate, or API engineer a plus.
