Only At Vulcan

We have a saying here – “Only at Vulcan,” which refers to the one-of-a-kind experiences and stories that you can only encounter working for a Paul G. Allen company.

#OnlyAtVulcan means bumping into Jane Goodall in the elevator or a special movie night for employees at Seattle’s Cinerama. 

It also can mean a trip to Africa to work with wildlife park rangers to implement new technologies developed to protect elephants and other threatened species.

And Only At Vulcan can mean paddling around Lake Union in a kayak as part of a community clean-up program.
