Senior Frontend Engineer

React jobs at Via


We’re looking for an experienced software engineer to join one of our product engineering teams. You’ll work closely with our designers, product managers, and customers to understand user needs, and then build and iterate on technical solutions that address them. You'll work across the stack, using different technologies for different projects. You’ll also build and maintain our processes and tools, to keep our productivity and code quality high.

Our stack is mostly Typescript (with React, Redux, and Mapbox), Rails, Python, and Postgres/PostGIS. However, it's more important to us that you have experience in building complex frontend applications, and user-centric development in general than with our specific technologies.

What You'll Do:

  • Build a beautiful product that helps street planners move quickly to improve safety and help people get around
  • Partner with engineers, product managers and designers to scope and ship new features
  • Work closely with design and product teams to develop creative solutions to novel UX problems
  • Evolve and scale a complex map-based React application
  • Contribute to discussions about engineering best practices and architecture for frontend app development

Who You Are:

  • You have at least 3+ years of professional software engineering experience
  • You want to work at a mission-driven company
  • You find value in talking to customers and addressing core customer needs
  • You're collaborative, humble, empathetic, and value honest feedback

What Catches Our Eye:

  • Experience developing complex React applications
  • Experience with geospatial or mapping technologies

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.
