I have been working at InVision full-time (Less than a year)
Overall, InVision has been a fantastic place to work for the last four months. Does it feel like eight months? Yes. However, I have never felt more supported in my life. The first couple of days/months are always stressful but having leadership around you that genuinely tries to set you up for success is an incredible feeling and does not happen everywhere.
InVision has an excellent benefits package- including a “flexible” PTO policy, 1/2-day Fridays year-round (if you managed your time efficiently), monthly gym reimbursement, continuing education support, phone reimbursement, 401K (No match at this time) and super competitive health care plans. Plus, InVision has a 100% distributed workforce, and they try to give us every resource possible to make sure we can properly work from "anywhere”- Yup, anywhere. Everyone receives a $500 stipend to help create your home office, and a $100 InVision Café Card that gets filled up monthly. These all work great for me, as I am traveling around in my RV. “No Internet access? …Better stop by S-Bucks, and get some work done..” ..It's almost too easy.
Diversity seems to be a focus of InVision and is quite prominent already. This diverse talent brings fresh ideas, perspectives and views to our culture, and products. Plus, different approaches are the recipe for creating better products, and experiences for our customers. You're encouraged to be as authentic as possible, measured by the work you put in, which in turn, pushes you to be the best version of yourself and introduces new challenges..
I’m a firm believer that working remotely is not for everyone. You need to be diligent, hardworking, proactive with a strong sense of time management. There is an initial adjustment period and learning to balance home life and work life all in the same environment can be challenging. Our CEO, Clark wants employees to work wherever they want, and he believes giving people that freedom can increase employee happiness and foster communication that’s better than that of many co-located companies. This also enables us to tap into talent from all across the globe, rather than being limited by geographic locations- we can bring on the best and the brightest regardless of where you live!
As you can see, our CEO, Clark is a true visionary, a kind, authentic person. I have heard rumors that some people don’t think he’s real… ha, He is. :) I had a great chat with him, and he was super down to earth, and was genuinely interested in what made me join InVision, and what makes us better than the competition... That doesn’t happen everywhere you go either.
If you want to call it a Con- InVision is a startup. Or rather, an “established startup”, but a startup nonetheless. Not everything is polished, and sometimes even has a “Wild Wild West” feel to it.. but for me, I love the ambiguity! It's a fantastic opportunity to prove yourself and grow with the company… And we are growing immensely! The determination and enthusiasm from everyone are reflective of the culture they have established. It doesn’t matter what team, or department you are on, everyone has the same passion and eagerness to get keep the company moving forward in the right direction and staying competitive.
Advice to Management
I am sincerely happy to have the opportunity to work with InVision and can’t wait to see what is next on the horizon! More to come!

The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at InVision (Seattle, WA (US)).
Your standard process; however when you get to the Hw stage they ask for essentially an entire strategy and for sample candidates. This is common for today’s market; however, the detail they go into compared to what you see out there is extensive. I came away with the sense they could potentially be doing this to many applicants and walking away with fresh ideas. Especially since their recruiting team during the interview could hardly discuss their best practices, etc. Recruiters beware. There was something off about it especially when you submit it and minutes later you receive a rejection email? Odd if you ask me.
