We’re becoming a central hub for transportation data, and we’re looking for people who are excited to help us forge the future of data in transportation. As a backend engineer at Via, you’ll be responsible for building and scaling the systems that ingest and process our data, developing internal and external data APIs, and working collaboratively with our data visualization team to automate data integrations.
At Via we work in small, collaborative teams and engineers often touch many different parts of our systems. We value deeply understanding the needs of the customer, and you’ll work closely with product managers and even our users at cities to understand the best way to provide value in their workflows.
What You'll Do:
Collaborate with product, design, and data visualization to understand user needs and identify key platform capabilities to build
Build out our data platform including data storage, APIs, and pipelines
Mentor junior engineers
Develop new processes around data operations
Educate the rest of the team on how to develop on top of the data platform
Who You Are:
You have real world experience building and running systems involving one of the following: Airflow (or other data pipeline infrastructure), Postgres, or PostGIS (or other geospatial tooling)
You enjoy owning mission critical projects from inception to production
You love sharing and communicating your work to other engineers
What Catches Our Eye:
Experience with Ruby on Rails
Familiarity with Python and Pandas
Experience working with AWS and Terraform
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.
