Organizational Culture

The average working American spends about 52% of their waking hours at their job. The way we see it, if you’re going to spend over half of your life doing something, why not do something meaningful?

We are a company that lives and breathes the essence of meaningful work. Our employees have a level of autonomy and responsibility that is hard to find in today’s corporate environment. We’re not discouraged by ambiguity; we see it as an opportunity to create something truly great.

Our corporate culture is founded on trust and individual accountability. As such, we expect a lot out of each other. This is a fast-paced, unpredictable environment where 70-hour weeks are not uncommon. But what you get in return is a sense of ownership in your career.

If you’re looking for a traditional, predictable 9-5 job, then you probably don’t want to be working at Vivisum. On the other hand, if the following characteristics describe you, we’d love to meet you:


  • Social consciousness – Ability to sacrifice personal desires for a broader group of humanity.
  • Intellectual curiosity – Innate drive to explore meaning, transcendence and the ‘big idea.’
  • Loyalty – Ability to form committed, long-term relationships, both personally and professionally.


  • Work ethic – Enjoys working long and hard; achieves moments of flow / understands ‘work as yoga.’
  • Creativity – Demonstrates an entrepreneurial spirit; embraces risk in creating anew.
  • Perseverance – Has a track-record of achievement; by striving and overcoming life’s challenges.


  • Intelligence – Demonstrates raw intellectual horsepower in all interactions.
  • Persuasion – Ability to communicate a logical and persuasive point of view; strong communication skills.
  • Charisma – Someone that clients and colleagues would enjoy spending time with.
