About us

At Lyft we care deeply about delivering the best transportation experience: this means the best experience for the passenger and the best experience for the driver. 

We believe this quality of service can only be achieved with a deep understanding of our world, our cities, our streets… how they evolve, how they breathe. A strong awareness of our environment will allow us to operate respectfully in our neighborhoods. Simply put: to be considerate of our communities. 

Naturally, we are also embracing the powerful positive impact autonomous transportation will bring to our everyday lives and it is our ambition to become a leader in the development and operation of such vehicles. Thanks to our network, with hundreds of millions of rides every year, we have the means to make autonomy and Artificial Intelligence a safe reality. 

By joining the Autonomous Tech group, you will have the opportunity as a founding team member to develop and deploy tomorrow’s hardware & software solutions enabling the revolution of transportation and information.
