Position Summary

Vulcan Inc. is a company working globally to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges. The projects and investments we pursue are inspired by the ideas of our founder Paul G. Allen. As the idea man and original technologist behind Microsoft, Mr. Allen was a pioneer of the PC software industry in the late 1970s and early 1980s – a development that ultimately enabled billions of people to use computers and unlocked incalculable human and economic potential. Today, Mr. Allen is working to save endangered species, improve ocean health, explore new frontiers, research how the human brain works and build sustainable communities. In all his endeavors, Mr. Allen constantly asks “What if…?” and pushes people to challenge conventional thinking, collaborate across disciplines and reimagine what’s possible.
