  • Lead all aspects of the monthly financial reporting process as it relates to payroll. Produce additional reporting as needed for other internal and external purposes on employee headcount and payroll-related information.

We’re Via, and we build technology that changes the way the world moves.

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.

Via was founded with the guiding principle that we go further when we go together. We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace.
