As we enter 2019, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing on a world-class executive to lead our engineering organization. Join us in welcoming Eisar Lipkovitz as Lyft’s Executive Vice President of Engineering.
Eisar has spent 15 years at Google in various leadership roles, overseeing the tremendous growth of that business while streamlining operations and reducing product complexity. Since 2014, his team of several thousand engineers built Google’s Display, Video, and Apps Advertising products. Previously, Eisar worked on the infrastructure behind Google Search, driving many innovations during a tremendous increase in scale and a transition from web to structured data. Prior to that, he worked for four years at Akamai during the explosive growth of the Internet. Eisar began his career at Israeli Air Force after graduating from Tel Aviv University with B.Sc and MBA.
“It’s clear that Lyft is tackling one of the most interesting and world-changing engineering challenges of our lifetime, and the team has done an exceptional job innovating through dispatch, matching, pricing, and mapping to create the overall experience.” said Eisar. “The work Lyft is doing intersects with my passion of operating extremely complex systems efficiently while developing strong leaders in tech, and I couldn't be more excited to join the team.”
We’re excited to bring on such a strategic and experienced executive as we continue growing our talented engineering team to make our vision -- improving people’s lives with the world’s best transportation -- come to life.
