Via is using technology to transform transportation around the world. From changing a single person’s daily commute to reducing humanity’s collective environmental footprint — we’ve got huge goals.

Via has partnered with 100+ cities and public transit agencies around the world to deploy our mobility technology. As a Field Operations Manager, you’ll be responsible for managing multiple services in Berlin (e.g. WirMobil, BVG Muva) using our innovative technology platform. You’ll manage daily operations while driving continuous improvement and growth of our services.

Who You Are:

  • Team-focused: You enjoy working in a team and have experience in taking responsibility for employees
  • A self-starter: you take ownership of your work, are comfortable taking on a high level of responsibility, and able to adapt as conditions change
  • Data-driven: you use metrics to make decisions and set priorities
  • Empathetic and calm: you remain calm under stress and always find the right tone, whether in discussions with the management level of our partners or our drivers
  • Hands-on and motivated: Willing to contribute on projects of all types. Experienced in managing projects with multiple stakeholders or locations is a plus
  • Your German language skills are at least C1 level (fluent) and your English is at an advanced level
  • A valid driver's license in Germany, class B is desirable (but not a must-have)

What We Offer:

  • Joining a global employer with over 600 mobility deployments in 35+ countries
  • Becoming part of a company that was awarded for its commitment to social good

  • Salary Range: €40,000 - 60,000 per year. Final salary will be determined by the candidate’s experience, knowledge, and skills.

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.

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. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles. All backgrounds, identities, and voices are welcomed and celebrated at Via.
