Though Lyft trails Uber in its stock price and US market share, the same does not appear to be true for employee compensation. According to salary data Lyft shared with the US government, its pay for some positions matches or exceeds what Uber offers.

The US Office of Foreign Labor Certification requires companies to disclose compensation for permanent and temporary employees from outside the US to ensure the firms aren’t paying them less than what their peers make, on average. So while the data is taken from only a portion of Lyft’s workforce, it does provide insight into the salaries the company pays for some roles.

The salary data Business Insider analyzed is from 2020 and represents an average among employees included in Lyft’s disclosures.

Lyft did not respond to a request for comment.

Here’s what some Lyft employees make each year:

  • Data scientist: $141,250
