As New Product Strategy Associate, you’ll define and execute on multiple aspects of our new mobility products strategy, including evaluating new market opportunities, identifying and building new partnerships with organizations that could benefit from Via’s technology, and expanding existing partnerships into new business verticals. You will work cross-functionally at Via to generate creative solutions and drive Via’s strategy for the future of mobility.

What You'll Do:

  • Develop strategies that support Via’s entry and expansion into new markets, including healthcare transportation, autonomous vehicles, and advertising
  • Conduct rigorous market, competition, and product analysis for new areas of transportation where Via’s cutting-edge technology can bring about significant change
  • Identify and build alliances with organizations that could benefit from Via’s technology and accelerate our entry into new markets
  • Become a subject matter expert on future mobility markets, mastering the ins and outs of Via’s product suite and the pain points of users and partner organizations 
  • Leverage your understanding of Via’s capabilities to inform the ongoing development of our new product/market penetration strategies

Who You Are:

  • Creative generalist; you’re excited to hone cross-functional business skills — from product and sales to finance and business development — and apply them to ambiguous problems
  • A people person; you enjoy building rapport with potential partners, excel at working with people from different backgrounds, and bring a sense of humor and humility to each conversation.
  • Detail-oriented and thorough; you’re a proactive self-starter.
  • Experience defining, specifying and executing the creation of new products & services.
  • A strong executor, you get the job done while keeping the big picture firmly in mind
  • A savvy and tactful communicator; you intuitively find the right tone for each audience
  • Have a Bachelor’s Degree and record of impressive academic achievement

What Catches Our Eye:

  • Previous interest or experience in the future of transportation and/or healthcare a plus, but not required
  • A creative background — you’ve started a new club or business, or you’ve demonstrated interest in undefined projects in another way
  • Experience with sales and/or market research

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. 

Via was founded with the guiding principle that we go further when we go together. 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.

We’re proud to be leading a worldwide transportation revolution and modernizing mobility for all. Through intelligently-designed systems and sophisticated algorithms, we craft localized solutions for each one of our global partners. Ready to join the ride?

Via is an equal opportunity employer.

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

Senior Designer (Joined Aug 2016)

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)

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The culture at Via is defined by its people: hardworking, extremely bright, very curious, and genuinely humble. They crave collaboration and don’t take themselves too seriously, knowing when to laugh at themselves, too. It’s rare to find such a group of people all passionate about the same product, and that shows day in and day out.

Isabella Olea

Expansion Associate Principal (Joined Aug 2017)
