Via is using technology to transform transportation around the world. From changing a single person’s daily commute to reducing humanity’s collective environmental footprint — we’ve got huge goals.

As a Staff Engineer (Infrastructure, Scalability, Reliability), you will be at the forefront of driving and executing cross R&D initiatives that are critical to our technological evolution and scalability. You will lead the research and design of sophisticated systems, including multi-region architecture designed to support scaling, as well as pioneering asynchronous communication methods and optimizing internal service-to-service interactions.
Your role will involve not only the theoretical research but also the hands-on implementation of a variety of projects aimed at enhancing our system's resilience and efficiency. This includes developing strategies for load balancing, load shedding, and architecting cost-efficient solutions through code optimization.
In addition to these responsibilities, you will navigate a broad spectrum of technological disciplines, ranging from network and operating system internals to code optimizations and high-level architecture planning, ensuring a comprehensive approach to our technology strategy and implementation.
You will steer the technical strategy and vision for our underpinning infrastructure, guiding our efforts towards achieving a robust, scalable, and efficient technological foundation.

What You'll Do:

  • Develop, drive, execute, and lead a long term vision and strategy for Via’s Site Reliability, infrastructure, and tooling
  • Write, build, deploy, and maintain code in production
  • Collaborate with engineering groups to establish best practices and standards for incident response and management
  • Continuously enhance our infrastructure and supporting procedures so that it is easy to maintain and deploys reliably

Who You Are:

  • BS degree or Masters degree in Computer Science, similar technical field of study or equivalent practical experience
  • Minimum of 8 years of industry experience in cloud engineering
  • Minimum of 6 years of experience in backend development
  • Experience designing, deploying, building or managing distributed systems of significant scale
  • Multithreading, multiprocessing experience in different types of environments - low and high level
  • Professional experience and capability with essential cloud infrastructure systems (Kubernetes, AWS, GCE).
  • Track record of growing and assembling a high functioning engineering organization
  • Strong organizational skills, the ability to prioritize tasks and keep projects on schedule
  • Ability to collaborate effectively with a geo-distributed team

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.

With the addition of Remix into our portfolio, 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.

We’re committed to building and nurturing a team as diverse as the communities we serve. Bringing transportation equity to the world begins with championing equal opportunity in our own offices. All backgrounds, identities, and voices are welcomed and celebrated here.
