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.

As Legal Operations Associate, you will work closely with a team of highly dedicated and dynamic lawyers on essential in-house legal functions with a particular focus on supporting commercial contracts and regulatory research in the EU. As a fully integrated member of the legal team, you will play a key cross functional role in driving success on a variety of exciting legal initiatives.

What You'll Do:

  • Support corporate governance processes in the DACH region and across the EU, including managing and updating entities and directors and making public filings.
  • Communicate regulatory requirements to operations teams and build processes to ensure regulatory compliance, especially with applicable procurement laws and regulations.
  • Generate and update form employment agreements and addenda for driver partner employees in Germany and provide labor and employment paralegal support.
  • Prepare, review and mark up form contracts, e.g. NDAs, SaaS licenses, vendor contracts, engagement letters, etc., and maintain the company’s forms and guideline documents.
  • Research applicable international and local laws, regulations and ordinances for a wide variety of on-demand transit deployments and support compliance.
  • Develop working knowledge of internal databases and systems in order to pull and extract insights from data in making business decisions.
  • Manage, organize and maintain files in the company’s contract database and shared cloud storage system.
  • Ensure and track compliance with GDPR and other data privacy laws through oversight of Data Protection Agreements with vendors.
  • Provide administrative support and assist with special projects, as assigned.

Who You Are:

  • Motivated, self-starter with at least 1-2 years professional work (or work-study) experience, prior startup or legal experience is a plus.
  • Undergraduate or graduate degree with a strong academic record - this is a non-attorney role, though individuals interested in attending law school in the future are encouraged to apply.
  • Meticulous and vigilant, with a keen attention to detail.
  • Willing to wear multiple hats and work on projects of all types, big and small.
  • High-energy and enjoy working autonomously.
  • Excellent analytical and critical thinking skills.
  • A positive can-do attitude, good judgment, and the ability to effectively manage competing priorities.
  • Strong organizational and communication skills and an eagerness to help others.
  • Fluent in German and English

What We Offer:

  • Trust and autonomy: we know which challenges we want to tackle but we will let you decide how to approach them – and be ready to support you along the way
  • Long-term career opportunities: whether you grow your expertise by tackling new issues or decide to explore a new career path, we’re in it for the long run
  • 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
  • 30 vacation days a year
  • Urban Sports Club membership

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.
