Job Description

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 Associate Tools team's mission is to deliver best-in-class tools to enable our customer support associates to accurately and efficiently provide help for our drivers and riders. You'll work alongside our support associates and play a key role in building trust, empathy, and communication between engineering and support. You’ll design and build new tools to improve the support workflow, collaborate with associates to optimize our current tools for high-impact use cases, and assist in triaging and fixing critical production bugs.

Frontend Engineers at Lyft build and own innovative web applications using advanced JavaScript, CSS, and HTML, with a desire to achieve exceptional design fidelity, usability, accessibility, and performance across both desktop and mobile browsers.

Projects will require close collaboration with other teams and orgs, working closely with product managers and designers, other engineers and stakeholders. These projects may occur simultaneously, so you must be able to juggle multiple concurrent initiatives. We will also expect you to advocate for sound frontend standards to engineers, designers, and management.

  • Leave the code in a better state than when you found it (progressive refactor)
  • Participate in code reviews to ensure code quality and distribute knowledge
  • Go home knowing that your work today is meaningfully improving the lives of every Lyft driver and rider

Experience:

  • Must have 5+ years of software engineering industry experience
  • Advanced knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML
  • Experience working with modern JavaScript frameworks, like React
  • Experience working with design systems (e.g. Bootstrap, MaterialUI)
  • Experience with unit, integration, and end-to-end testing
  • Experience working cross-functionally with Product and Design
  • Good understanding of web performance and how browsers and DOM work
