At Vay, we pioneer change. We do work that has never been done before. We have a vision that we are excited to work for: To solve transportation in metropolitan areas.

Our team combines talent from multiple worlds: from automotive and safety engineering to software, product, regulatory, operations and many more. It is not only our technology that follows a human centred approach, but in everything we do, we keep the user's perspective and needs front of mind. This approach and the mix of talent creates a unique and stimulating work environment.
