Lyft is an America-based ride-sharing company that was founded in 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer with a strong mission to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. Lyft is a multimodal transportation network that operates a rideshare marketplace that connects drivers with riders via the Lyft mobile app as well as micromobility (bikes, ebikes, and scooters) solutions. Lyft is available to approximately 95% of the United States population, as well as several cities in Canada.
Lyft launched its Ukrainian site in spring 2021. From the very first day we have been focused on hiring exceptional talents among Software Engineers, Data Science and ML Specialists, Product Managers, and leadership. Lyft Ukraine has been growing rapidly and as of January 2023, we have 200+ employees working so far.
Based on past team member engagement surveys, 98% of Lyft Ukraine employees ‘are proud to tell people they work at Lyft’; and 97% stated, ‘they see themselves working for Lyft a year from now’.
Lyft Ukraine offers a flexible workplace and currently supports coworking spaces in Kyiv and Lviv. Lyft also provides regular paid time off (28 calendar days of vacation, 5 days off, sick leave, and 18 weeks of parental leave) and offers discretionary bonuses in addition to the employees’ salaries to support them and their families. Lyft also offers medical and life insurance, mental health and professional development support, language lessons, wellness reimbursement, and fertility and family-building benefits.
