Lyft has hired former Google VP of engineering Eisar Lipkovitz to lead its engineering team.




His move is the latest in a string of hires by Lyft from the search-engine giant.




Alphabet, Google's parent company, has invested in Lyft through its VC arm, CapitalG.



Lyft has been quickly scaling up its engineering team as it continues to expand into things like bikes, scooters, and more.
To keep up with the growth and manage its team of engineers that is now more than 1,000-strong, the ride-hailing company has poached Eisar Lipkovitz, Google's former vice president of engineering, the company announced Friday.
"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," Lipkovitz said in a statement provided by Lyft.
