What Working at VIVA Is Like

What do we look for in candidates?

As a consulting firm responsible to our clients and the social impact causes they champion, there are a few things that we look for in candidates:

  • You’re comfortable working in a fast paced environment where approaches and answers are not clear cut, even when problems are well established.
  • You can create new ideas and solutions at a rapid pace.
  • You’re comfortable with ambiguity and navigating complex situations.
  • You’re collaborative and effective at triaging assignments and priorities based on deadlines.
  • You’re an independent worker, but you’re also ready to lean on others and offer your own skills and thought partnership whenever it’s needed.


What else should you know about working at VIVA?

  • We’re hybrid, with twice per month required in-person staff meetings at our office in downtown San Mateo, CA. Employees may choose to work from the office or home on other days.
  • We offer a competitive compensation package and create a workplace where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. That means offering health insurance and other coverage, a retirement plan, generous paid time off, sick leave, professional development funds, and equipment and a monthly stipend for your home office.
