Elliot Darvick

Team-centric operations leader with substantial experience in marketplace, scaling organizations, and navigating dynamic environments.

I am driven by a growth mindset and a deep belief in the power of unlocking human potential to drive business results, individual advancement, and ultimately, societal impact. I’ve gained entrepreneurial experience firsthand with my own bootstrapped startup (Unbucket), I’ve experienced the hyper-growth path to IPO as senior director (Lyft), and I’ve gone through the M&A challenge of divesting, restructuring, and selling a business (Workrise). I’ve also had a lot of meaningful experiences outside of operations in the realm of brand strategy and marketing, which has given me a well-rounded perspective on bringing a business to life.

  • Fix and Scale a Local Marketplace

    I was hired to be the first employee in the Detroit market. At the time, it was a low-functioning marketplace (high ETAs, lots of unavailable sessions) and it was my role to fix and scale the marketplace through investments, problem-solving, and eventually building a team.

    Through experimentation, staying close to the customer (driver and passenger), lobbying for resources (e.g. a fleet of rental vehicles), and local marketing, we not only turned the market around, but turned it into a competitive success story -- it was one of the few major markets to cross 50% share two years later.

    Along the way, we grew Detroit from a market doing 15,000/rides per week to 250,000/rides per week at peak and had a local team of 15 people handling customer support, local marketing, business development, and special operations.
