The Operations Manager will support operations strategy, planning, analytics, and execution for Lyft’s Bikes & Scooters program in Denver.

As an Operations Manager, you will report into local leadership, and work together to shape the vision and execution for the Lyft Bikes & Scooters ongoing operations - as well as contribute to success and learnings in additional markets, through the contribution to playbooks, organization capabilities, and advising with on-the-ground execution.

If you share our vision for transportation that empowers local communities, reduces our environmental footprint and brings people together, we’d love to meet you!
