By at least one measure, Lyft is very big.
Around 36 percent of Lyft’s employees focus on design, engineering and product management. Nearly 300 people worked on its trust and safety team, handling especially sensitive issues, and Lyft said there were “several hundred” people located at its Level 5 Engineering Center in Palo Alto, California, where the company works on self-driving car technology development.
Lyft said none of its employees are unionized, and the company has “not experienced any work stoppages.”
In the same period that headcount tripled, Lyft said that the number of active riders increased by more than that amount.
