You will work with our team in Paris as we launch and scale our services in this key market. Your impact?

  • Tap Via’s in-house product, operational, and marketing knowledge base to help partners get the most out of our technology, while contributing to our scaling growth
  • Work collaboratively with our Paris team, as well as other Via teammates in London, Berlin, New York, and Tel Aviv, to test and implement product improvements

Who You Are:

  • Fluent in English and one of the following languages: French, German, Dutch, or Italian
  • Effective at managing multiple tasks simultaneously and comfortable taking on responsibility
  • Willing to wear multiple hats and work on projects of all types
  • Entrepreneurial and a proactive problem solver; you don’t accept the status quo and are always looking for creative solutions
  • Excellent communicator with the ability to adjust to a variety of stakeholders
  • Eager and available to travel within Europe for field tests when needed

What We Offer:

  • Joining a global employer with over 600 mobility deployments in 35+ countries
  • Becoming part of a company that was awarded for its commitment to social good:
    • We are one of 17 Ventures That Embody the U.N.’s 17 Sustainability Goals.
    • Inc. Magazine’s “Best in Business” Awardee in the software category for Companies That Put Purpose Before Profit

    • €2,300 - 2,400 gross per month, based on a 40-hour week
    • Around €1,200 gross per month, based on a 20-hour week
  • A lovely office situated in the heart of Paris, at rue Saint Lazare.

We’re Via, and we build technology that changes the way the world moves. We pioneered the TransitTech category to ensure that the future of transportation is shared, dynamic public mobility — the kind that reduces carbon emissions across congested cities, minimizes reliance on private cars, and provides everyone with accessible, efficient, and affordable ways of getting around.

We created the first end-to-end TransitTech solution for cities and transit agencies, offering world-class software, service design, and operational expertise to fundamentally improve the way the world moves.

Via was founded with the guiding principle that we go further when we go together. We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles. All backgrounds, identities, and voices are welcomed and celebrated at Via.
