Hybrid work options
While Sound Transit is not a multistate employer (as part of our commitment to economic opportunity for the region, employees must maintain Washington state residency), we offer a range of flexible and hybrid work options for many positions.
Some roles are mandatory on-site (typically service operation roles), while others can choose either primarily on-site (1-2 days remote per week) or primarily remote (3-5 days remote per week).
Most employees can come into work at Sound Transit’s headquarters, conveniently located in and around Union Station in downtown Seattle, on a schedule that works for them and for their team.
Your Talent Advisor can provide more information about our hybrid work options and flexible schedules during the recruitment process.
