Lyft Opens First European Office in Munich For Tech Hires

Ride-hailing provider Lyft Inc. is expanding to Europe, opening an office in the southern German city of Munich, home to the likes of BMW AG and Siemens AG. The San Francisco-based rival to Uber Technologies Inc. said workers there will develop advanced localization and geometric mapping technologies to aid its autonomous driving effort. “They’ll build the layer of software that helps our self-driving cars know precisely where they are and what’s around them,” Lyft said in a blog post.
