I worked at Lyft as Tech Lead. I’m trained as a full stack software engineer and build both internal and external facing products. The biggest projects I’ve led were rebuilding Lyft’s support systems and launching Lyft’s car rental product.
Formerly I worked on the Growth Marketing team. In this role I mixed coding, data analytics, and marketing program design to grow the number of users and increase the activity of users engaged with Lyft. I learned about how to manage a dual sided marketplace. I worked cross-functionally with product, engineering, and brand teams to build both single use and automated engagement campaigns.
