Beginning Oct. 15, 2021, Sound Transit will require all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This requirement extends to all exempt and nonexempt employees. We provide an accommodations process for those who cannot be vaccinated for medical or religious reasons. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (defined as two full weeks after the second Moderna or Pfizer, or the one Johnson and Johnson shot) by time of hire is a condition of employment – not a condition of applying or interviewing for jobs with Sound Transit. Please contact Lorena Jones in our Total Rewards team with any questions related to the vaccine requirement or accommodations.
As we navigate our way through the COVID-19 crisis, safety is our top concern for our candidates, employees and the public. For many of our employees, we’ve implemented a temporary work from home policy. We will be offering a variety of hybrid workforce options as part of our eventual return to worksite plan to include flex schedules, such as 4x10 and 4-36-4 available for exempt or nonexempt employees, or 9/80s for exempt only. In addition, some roles are eligible for remote work, such as one to two days remote, or three to five days remote per week. Please note, Sound Transit is not a multistate employer. Employees must maintain a Washington state residency as required by our agency mission of providing economic and employment opportunities for our tax region.
For job candidates, know that we are taking extra steps to keep you safe and have shifted all in-person interviews to be conducted virtually for the foreseeable future. Thank you, and stay safe.
Transform the region with us.

We are also committed to doing things the right way by creating equitable opportunities for all and providing continued career growth and development. So if you’re looking for a meaningful career where you can “go big” and truly make a difference, you’ve come to the right place.
