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. 

Our transport network serves the needs of millions of people every day who want to get from one place to another using Lyft cars, bikes and scooters, with public transportation, or on foot. To serve these needs in the best possible way we maintain a map that is reflecting our constantly changing environment. Our systems draw knowledge distilled from all the data points collected every minute - driving locations, sensor data, and user feedback. This empowers us to use the map and answer questions such as: Which route should be taken? Which transport mode is ideal in this location? Has the event in my town resulted in road closures? Is a U-turn allowed at that specific location? Is the drop-off location considered safe? And many more. 

To strengthen our efforts, we are hiring a Machine Learning Engineer who will work end-to-end on creating new capabilities to detect changes in the environment and reflect them in our Lyft map using a wide variety of input sources from the Lyft fleet (image, telemetry, ...). For this we are looking for someone who is fluent with state of the art machine learning approaches, who values software engineer best practices and also loves the algorithmic and geospatial side of the challenge. 

Our technology stack involves deep learning toolkits like PyTorch and TensorFlow and relies on technologies like Kubernetes to leverage the models at large scale. You will work with incredibly passionate and talented colleagues from machine learning, data science, and engineering on projects that delight our passengers and drivers - powered by an up to date map. 

Responsibilities 

  • Work on high-impact projects and innovate new solutions to provide the best mapping experience possible 
  • Build machine learning based detectors for traffic elements and productionize them to automatically update our Lyft map 
  • Stay informed about latest research in ML / CV and transform academic approaches into productionized systems that produce reliable results within a large-scale sensor-processing system
  • Help establish technical roadmaps and architectures based on technology and our business needs

Experience 

  • Solid foundation in state of the art image processing approaches (object detection, image segmentation, etc.) 
  • Strong understanding of machine learning fundamentals and extensive experience with ML modeling frameworks (PyTorch, Tensorflow, etc.) 
  • Track record of translating knowledge of machine learning methods into business solutions (e.g. Kaggle challenge participation, strong Github presence, etc.) 
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills 
  • Proven ability that you can work well in an international environment with a diverse group of engineers in different locations (Munich, Minsk, Kyiv, Seattle, San Francisco, New York) 

Benefits 

  • Pension scheme with 4% employer contribution 
  • Risk and Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefits 
  • Mental health benefits 
  • 18 weeks of paid parental leave. Biological, adoptive, and foster parents are all eligible 30 days for paid time off
