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 is seeking a qualitative or mixed methods User Experience Research Intern to join our team, which aspires to elevate the user experience for all of our customers and associates  across 300+ cities nationwide and internationally. You will conduct research studies, as well as participate in studies alongside more senior researchers from which you’ll gain strong mentorship. You will work closely with cross-functional partners, such as Design, Product Management, Analytics, and Engineering, in order to derive deep insights about people’s’ behaviors and attitudes, and communicate results and actionable recommendations across the company.

Interns work side-by-side with top User Experience Research team members in the industry while having autonomy from the get-go. They contribute to user-facing products and are able to see their work go live quickly. Lyft fosters a collaborative environment in the office, so there's always a sharp mind eager to hear about your next idea. So what's yours?

You will utilize methods such as ethnographic & field research, diary studies, surveys, user/usability testing (remote and in-person), guerrilla research, and any other methods you find impactful

  • Must have at least one additional term (quarter or semester) of school left after the end of the internship
  • Extraordinary organizational skills and meticulous eye for detail
  • Strong listening and analytical skills; proactive troubleshooter
  • Team player with excellent written & verbal communication skills
  • Enthusiasm for a collaborative, highly energetic, fun and fast-paced environment
  • Experience as a researcher and/or research coordinator for qualitative or quantitative research studies or school-based research projects, including usability/user testing, surveys, field research, or user interviews

  • Experience conducting qualitative research in applied research settings, ideally within a Product organization
  • Experience designing surveys and experimental research, and analyzing large datasets using appropriate statistical methods
  • Experience using Qualtrics or SurveyMonkey

  • Design thinking, visual communication, information design, or wireframing skills
