Insights Specialist, Outreach innovation

Lyft, Nashville, TN

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

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 Outreach Innovation Team’s mission is to proactively enhance the user experience across the entire customer ecosystem. Our ultimate goal is to make Lyft the transportation platform of choice for riders and drivers. The team is made up of specialized associates who unblock customers at pivotal moments of their customer journey. This includes helping drivers complete their application and start driving, communicating important events and milestones to users, and other initiatives aimed at improving our customer’s experience.

The Insights Specialist will work with leads across all of these customer enhancement projects to estimate and monitor impact and shape future strategy and opportunities for the program by delivering insights.

This work is heavily cross-functional, and while the Insights Specialist will own the analytics for Outreach Innovation, the position will sit on the Product Operations Data Analytics team. The Data Analytics team takes a strong data-driven approach to identify the highest potential opportunities to unlock additional impact that is fundamental to Lyft’s success. The broad scope of the team enables it to be nimble and focus on the highest priority problem areas.

We are looking for analytical talent to provide insights and actionable recommendations that will drive impact and produce quality business decisions. The ideal candidate takes initiative, over-communicates, and works with the team to make it happen. You naturally find themes, patterns and trends and love sharing your findings.
