Primary responsibilities include managing on-time and on-budget delivery of Via’s first commercial system, developing project management processes to support the business as it grows, and defining best practices for managing complex, multiple-stakeholder projects.  This role has enormous growth potential as Via continues to grow rapidly, scale systems and expand our scope.
