Introducing VividQ

We cannot define VividQ with small epsilons and deltas so here's our best effort to show what working for us is like.

We are a deep tech start-up, so when you join us, you can expect a fast-paced environment with an emphasis on agility, collaboration and innovation. This allows us to develop and implement ground-breaking solutions and move quickly to deliver on the potential of holographic technology.

“We are working towards something that all of us deeply believe in. We want to bring about technological revolutions that will affect the landscape of the world for generations to come and fulfil the science-fiction fantasies of many great thinkers that came before us.”

Who we hire

We hire smart, unique, open-minded people to create an environment where everyone’s voice matters. Your opinion will count, right from day one, but expect to justify your point of view. Agile sets the tone of our work, prioritising collaboration and transparency. Sharing is a first principle – you’ll need to communicate, act with integrity and be ready to change the future.

We are all passionate about the journey we are on, and like to have a good time, plus a little weirdness goes down well…

Agile working

We use Scrum and Agile to plan and prioritise work across the business. These processes allow our teams to self-organise to deliver the most valuable work in the most efficient way. Thus ensuring everyone understands what the business needs to achieve, and can contribute their expertise and knowledge of the best way to achieve it.

Agile enables us to quickly adapt to new information and changing circumstances, and brings out the creativity and collective intelligence of the business, but it requires a great deal of self-discipline, clear and honest communication, respect and mutual trust - from the most senior roles through to graduates. Every voice is valued.

Diversity & Inclusivity (D&I)

We strive to build a culture with integrity, where high ethical standards play a key part in the development of the business. This is more than just following a set of rules. It requires our code of conduct to continuously reflect who we are, what’s important to us, and how we all build a company that we are proud to work for.

As an equal opportunity employer, we will support and encourage you to perform to your full potential. We are building a workplace where everyone is respected, regardless of age, (dis)ability, gender, race, ethnic or cultural background, religion or belief, or any other factor.

As we grow, we continue to expand the range of people-centric benefits that we offer:

Flexible, hybrid working options
Centrally located office in Cambridge with on-site parking and access to WeWork co-working spaces across London
Private medical insurance with leading UK provider Vitality Health

“When I first started I wasn't sure what to expect. The job sounded intriguing, but I didn't know how quickly I could pick up the skills necessary to feel confident and productive. Fortunately, my team got me up to speed quickly with the knowledge I needed, and are always on call if I need ideas or a quick brainstorming session. The work is flexible and the staff hugely supportive, and make working everyday great.”
