What Catches Our Eye: 

  • Combination of law firm and prior in house experience preferred.
  • Experience as a federal or state prosecutor or other government service.

An Insider's view of Via

What's something quirky about your company?

Like many startups, we want to move as quickly as possible, but in a thoughtful, considered way — one that doesn't leave a trail of destruction in our wake. This approach, and our commitment to being innovative without crossing any moral lines, has helped us tremendously in forming fruitful relationships with our partners.

Megan Manfred

Head of Commercial Law (Joined Feb 2018)

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our team is educating and engaging policy makers and politicians to make sure they understand the difference between shared and single passenger rides when setting new regulations and encourage on-demand mobility as a tool to solve the transportation needs of their community.

Ya-Ting Liu

Director of Government Affairs & Policy (Joined Jun 2019)

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In such a short time I’ve been given opportunities to push myself creatively and professionally which has been great. I’m amazed at the type of projects I get to work on and the practical experience I've been able to gain while at Via.

Sergio Matos

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Expansion team scopes and launches new Via projects around the globe - we're the "start-up within the start-up", which means we're constantly working on unprecedented problems. It's exciting to help shape new partnerships and new product lines, whether it's a city shuttle service in California or school bus routing in New York City.

Monica Ceragioli

VP of Expansion (Joined Apr 2014)

What makes someone successful on your team?

A common quality we all share is the ability to be very analytical and detail-oriented when required, but to also be strategic in our thought process and decision-making. A strong willingness to learn and to directly own projects (regardless of your title or experience level) leads to success on our team.
