  • Define key integrations between the Via system and our partners’ existing data and technical infrastructure, including input data, identity management, output data and downstream systems integrations. 
  • Manage our QA/testing and release schedule, and provide high-quality, comprehensive test result documentation to our partners.
  • Lead technical security and approvals processes and coordinate the creation of technical documentation to meet project requirements.    
  • Build a deep and trusting long-term partner relationship with Via for School partners: identify partner pain points, and leverage deep product knowledge to distill requests and ideas into actionable next steps and technology features.
  • Collaborate with Via’s business development team to scope and design new school bus projects and develop the business line based on domain expertise. Leverage your understanding of Via’s capabilities to inform the ongoing development of our Via for Schools product and technical strategy.

Who You Are:

  • Independent self-starter: you thrive in fast-paced environments and feel comfortable with a very high level of responsibility. You can troubleshoot issues in real-time and oversee multiple tasks simultaneously.
  • A savvy and tactful communicator with a demonstrated record of building and fostering durable business relationships; you intuitively find the right tone and feel comfortable working with people from a wide range of backgrounds. You remain calm and collected when facing crisis or criticism, and celebrate partners’ successes with them.
  • A strong executor: you know how to prioritize and you get the job done while keeping the big picture firmly in mind
  • A rounded technical expert: you understand various cloud technologies (AWS, Docker, Serverless, etc.) can work with Python/JS developers and are enthusiastic about system architecture, network protocols, security, design, testing, and performance.
  • 5+ years of work experience in a technical role (software development, engineering, IT, technical project management) at a SaaS or technology company
  • Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in a technical/STEM field, with a record of exceptional academic achievement


What Catches Our Eye:
