Hi, we’re Lively. Are you?

We’re revolutionizing hearing care. We’re on a mission to empower tens of millions of people to hear better through affordable, convenient, hearing care — at a fraction of the cost thanks to telemedicine. We’re led by a crew of enormously skilled thinkers, creators, and doers. And we’re as collaborative and compassionate as we are ambitious. Built In NYC just named us one of the “best small companies to work for”. Come help us lose the “small”!

So, why Lively?

There’s a million companies you could take your talents to. What makes Lively a good match? We’re a series B start-up with an eager, empowered customer base that’s growing exponentially. And we’re young enough, and small enough, where you could make a big, tangible difference — a real impact. Where are we from?  We come to hearing care by way of Amazon, Facebook, 1stdibs, among other start-ups. And we’re surrounded by a world-class advisory board and audiology team.

Changing lives and revolutionizing hearing care sounds like serious business. And it is. But we know how to have fun along the way. Case in point: our energizing weekly all-hands meetings where you’ll smile so much your smile muscles might get sore.

It helps that we have such a diverse crew — so you’ll fit right in. The Lively family includes actors, sommeliers, top-chefs, a former professional rollerblader (yep, that’s a thing), dancers, black belts, filmmakers and countless four-legged furry sidekicks.
