InVision London, England (UK) isn't hiring right now. Check out all InVision jobs
I have been working at InVision full-time (More than a year)
- Calibre of people we have across all departments is awesome
- Future opportunity for the company and our wider vision is still humongous. This category is just getting started and is going to get bigger and bigger
- We get to be a part of how all of the biggest companies in the world are creating awesome digital experiences. That's quite cool. Ok it's not saving puppies. But it is saving product teams that might be.
- Our customers are awesome. Can think of nobody i'd rather work closely with on a daily basis than Designers, PM's, Developers.
- Remote work (this can be a double edged sword for some and it's important to note that at the size and scale and importance we're at now we don't have the open flexibility to have all 800 of us "digital nomading" around the globe). That said, there is a level of freedom and flexibility afforded that it's hard to obtain in an office "show-up" 9-6 environment.
- On-boarding into the remote company was so surprisingly well thought through that it was the best start i've had at a new company
- Fresh Macbook when you join ;)
- You don't get a stocked fridge at the office (unless you've done grocery shopping)
- You don't get to see your AWESOME colleagues in person as much as you'd like
- Work/Life separation can be hard for some personalities, with the office in the spare room only 15 ft away at all times it can take discipline to shut down, and can sometime feel guilt for not working when the US is still online. The company doesn't encourage this, just the nature of remote to be considered.
- Not a con but a "transparency" item...we're not perfect. It's a great company to work for but we are in a very competitive market, we've scaled a lot, and we have work-ons. If you join us, don't arrive with rose tinted glasses thinking we're going to IPO in a couple of weeks and you're going to be a millionaire...you're not. If you want to come and join a potentially world class scaling SaaS company and want to dig in the trenches with us, apply right now. We want you!
Advice to Management
I don't need to post advice anonymously here because I feel totally comfortable being openly candid and honest internally with my advice. Good, bad, ugly, I wouldn't ever feel the need to come and moan in a public forum. Would rather Slack you and work on improvements, which is testament to the culture we have. I know most places couldn't say that about their culture of feedback.
So my one piece of advice, keep doubling down on that. Keep soliciting feedback, keep sharing the strategic goals and our north star to give the team full context (especially important for non product folks who don't see through the same wide angle lens that you do and get tunnel visioned on near term priorities that surface themselves).
