It’s hard to believe it’s almost been two years since the first Lyft rides took place in Nashville, Tennessee – we’ve accomplished a lot together since then. In 2014, Nashville International Airport was the first in the country to include Transportation Network Companies in its policies. This year, the Tennessee legislature passed arguably the strongest ridesharing legislation in the country to provide statewide authorization to welcome convenient and safe ways to get around.
On top of the incredible statewide leadership and support of innovation, Nashville is a city whose welcoming, creative culture and values mirror our own. Our history in Nashville coupled with our admiration for the community there is why we’re so excited to announce – downtown Nashville is the home of our newest Lyft office!
Now that we’re doing more than 1 million rides per week, and have become the fastest-growing transportation app in the U.S., expanding to Nashville will allow us to scale even more rapidly. Our goal is to hire 100 employees by the end of 2015, and ultimately have 400 team members in Nashville. We’re thrilled to support local job growth in Tennessee and bring technology opportunities to vibrant, growing regions outside of the Bay Area. This is just the beginning of a long, prosperous, and rewarding partnership.
The historic Sash & Door building in downtown Nashville will be the new home for our Customer Experience team, who will continue to support drivers and passengers with timely answers to their questions. Lyft is still the only ridesharing service with a 24/7 critical response line, and that commitment to service and swift responses will only grow from here. We’re also hiring a Nashville General Manager who will oversee and continue to grow local market operations.
We’re hiring for many roles, so if you’re interested in joining the movement, please check out our open positions and drop us a line. We arrive in October, so we'll see you soon, Music City!
