Let's start at the very beginning...

Lucid Origins

Road Sign

Lucid was not the product of 6 engineers huddled around a table at a local watering hole with thought bubbles percolating above their heads as they collaborated on a brilliant idea for a startup company sketched out on the back of a cocktail napkin.

Lucid has been and will continue to be a journey, a road trip of sorts that has stretched decades in time, spanned across the country in distance, and has lead to the creation of countless friendships and relationships. Work opportunities early in our careers caused the founders of Lucid's paths to intersect by chance, but luck had little to do with the friendships that were woven together. Those bonds were forged as we worked together, played together, broke bread together, vacationed together, and in some instances even lived together. We have celebrated and shared our career successes but more importantly have been able to celebrate each other's life events and milestones and have had the luxury of having friends to share the experience with along the way.

Throughout our shared experiences we have noticed some truths about work and life in general:

  • Work isn't work if you are having fun.
  • You have a lot more fun if you are around people whose company you enjoy.
  • Good people know other good people.
  • The journey can be better than the destination

Now we believe we have a unique opportunity to create something truly great—a company that is fun to work for because of the people you are surrounded by. A place where our employees will have an opportunity to contribute directly to success and growth of the company and be rewarded and recognized for doing so. A place where you want your friends to join us not because of a referral bonus, but because you care about them and know that it is the right place for them to be successful.

Lucid's Perspective

Growing up in 1980’s, has given the founders of Lucid a diverse look at the way technology has evolved from a hobby to a seemingly inseparable part of the simplest day to day actions. This has put us in a position to understand both the possibilities and the limitations that technology solutions offer and enable us to relate to and communicate with people on all parts of the technology spectrum.
