I have been working at InVision full-time (Less than a year)
I’m relatively new to InVision and my opinions are based on this initial experience. So far…
This is the most talented group of people I’ve ever worked with. Thoughtful, smart, and there is a culture of humility and empathy that fits really well with who I am and my work style. Not only is an a-hole culture frowned upon, it’s systemically removed.
I’ve been with three companies as they went public, but the growth trajectory here is unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of. The excitement and energy is palpable. It really pushes you to be the best version of yourself and introduces new challenges constantly.
The CEO is just what you want - inspiring, humble, frugal, laser focused on a vision, and willing to roll up his sleeves and help on the minutia when needed.
Good diversity mix and a real effort to keep improving it. Part of the value of the InVision platform is that it helps bring diverse ideas into the design process. And diverse ideas are the recipe for better digital products. So the focus on diversity in hiring reflects this value.
All remote work - Yes, you can really work from an airbnb from a different country every month. Or you can move away from the crazy Bay Area and have a work/life balance. It’s not just lip service. No one on my team that reports to me lives in the same state (or is even in the same region of the US), and it works incredibly well. I have a family and it’s a total game changer.
Remote work is amazing for the right person. But if you have trouble self motivating, this would be a difficult place to work.
Even at over 500 people, the company is in startup fast-growth mode, so chaos can creep in and your job will constantly evolve as new people are hired. That said, process and stability get better every day.
Advice to Management
I think the biggest challenge is to continue to channel and align the efforts of employees as the business grows. Over-communicate the vision and continue to feed and water this amazing culture of inclusivity.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InVision (San Francisco, CA (US)) in November 2019.
I had a really great conversation with a senior recruiter who led me to believe I was a strong candidate. She said she'd be forwarding my information to the hiring manager and that it was likely I would meet with them soon. I followed up with her twice after the interview and she ghosted me.
