Frontend Engineer


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.

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. You will be responsible for sound technical execution of web projects through hands-on development, quality-assurance, and prototyping.
