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.

We are seeking an experienced Engineering Manager to join the Mapping organization and manage the team responsible for building, enhancing and maintaining Lyft’s infrastructure and data for places. Places data is the backbone of Lyft's search system, supporting millions of rides by helping our riders and drivers reach their destinations.

Additionally we use place data to create new product experiences in collaboration with teams across Lyft. This team has a history of enabling rich and creative features that directly influence the product for all our users. We constantly innovate and incorporate cutting-edge technologies to make the lives of our community more enriched.

We are looking for an engineering manager with a passion for mapping and a proven expertise in managing teams with ownership of microservices, big-data processing and experience in building scalable solutions in cloud environments.
