TBS is looking for an experienced policy professional to join our fast-paced team to help identify and unlock new hardware and software sales opportunities across the globe.

  • Direct engagement with public officials and advocacy partners to best position Lyft and our micromobility offerings.

  • Manage external consultants conducting a diverse array of research, strategic planning, and advocacy.
  • Build partnerships with key stakeholders, including trade associations, think tanks, and academic institutions
  • Serve as a cross-functional partner to the Transit, Bikes, and Scooter line of business, helping bring a policy perspective early on into decision-making processes. 
  • Help articulate business cases for new initiatives and develop actionable recommendations.

Experience:

  • A passion for Lyft’s mission of improving people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. 
  • Experience working in or with public sector transportation agencies in government procurement. Bonus points for procurements related to micromobility. 
  • An understanding of the legislative and regulatory frameworks that govern micromobility programs across Europe. 
  • Strong network of transportation professionals – including public sector agencies (cities, DOTs, transit agencies).
  • Outstanding oral and written communication skills with experience speaking with government officials.
  • Previous advocacy experience on transportation or micromobility issues.
  • Foreign languages a strong plus.
  • Experience in transportation and/or labor policy is a plus
