Product Manager at Lyft
Minsk, BY

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.

Lyft’s core mission depends on having a digital representation of the physical world - a map - and the ability to use that map in order to provide the world’s best transportation. This is what makes Lyft different from many products: our products don’t just facilitate online interactions, they facilitate dynamic, real-world ones. These interactions range from finding the closest scooter, to being late and trying to choose between a train or a bike, to navigating through a congested city safely and swiftly, to a shared ride involving picking up two different passengers outside of Bed Bath and Beyond, each of whom have their hands full, when there’s nowhere to pull over except the bike lane...Without mapping services, none of these real world interactions between people and transport can happen.

The Mapping organization at Lyft has spent the last few years building up Lyft’s mapping assets and capabilities by combining many internal and external data sources and services into an increasingly powerful and mission-critical technology stack. In doing so, we’ve also enabled new user experiences and features across all of Lyft’s products. We’re hiring a Mapping product manager to help drive our efforts to build new and powerful mapping experiences for Lyft’s users and services.

You’ll lead a small team of PMs working within Mapping and with product teams across Lyft to identify new opportunities that take advantage of our mapping platform. You’ll also play a big role in defining the development of new services and technologies that enable transportation options users can’t live without. Finally, you’ll play a critical role in facilitating effective collaboration and communication between product teams within Lyft’s expanding office in Minsk and those based in the US.
