Required profile

Since we play in a team we’re only as good as our weakest player so we put extra effort to complete the team with those who fit our culture and share our vision. To achieve our ambitious goals and to get fulfillment from the work we do our best to live our core values:

TRUST

each other by default. We build trust through constructive, honest communication that serves the common good. We embrace ownership over every team member's decisions and goals removing all unnecessary procedures and policies - in this way we show confidence that we are all working for Vivid’s best interest. While it may seem simple, building trust requires a lot of effort, time, and commitment but it proves it’s worth every step. We believe that based on trust, our culture establishes mutual respect, a sense of ownership, and strong leadership.

COURAGE

to speak out, to be candid, ask questions and admit mistakes. We want our team members not to be afraid to try new initiatives, think out-of-the-box or, have the courage to raise difficult issues. We all remember that building great things means taking risks, but the riskiest is not taking risks at all. In a world that's changing so fast, it is likely we fail if we miss an opportunity!

OWNERSHIP

for own actions, decisions, and words. We actively take ownership because we all are doers who believe a good idea is worth nothing without execution. We operate as owners, which means we bring up issues and propose solutions. We are responsible for the quality of our individual work, but we are also proud of what we deliver as a team.

OPENNESS

to learning, sharing feedback, and discovering new possibilities. The openness of our minds and the combination of different environments, experiences, perspectives, and specialist knowledge make us more effective in solving problems and achieving better results.

FOCUS on the OUTCOME

We consider outcome makes a far greater impact than the process that led us there, or the number of hours we spent working on it, which is why we use OKR (objective and key results) to manage goals and Agile methodology. In any work we do we seek excellence that could be achieved by constant improvements or major breakthroughs.
