#full-time

InVision made its name helping design teams create the world’s best digital products. We broadened our impact as a thought leader guiding organizations toward design maturity. We explored new territory by bringing those two streams together and pioneering visual collaboration. Now we’re taking what we've learned and built, and expanding our reach to designers and non-designers alike. 

InVision is the visual collaboration platform powering the world’s best companies. The heart of InVision is Freehand, our online digital whiteboard. We built Freehand to transform the way people work together. Transformation is a bold term, but we stand by it. So do our users from Amazon, Anthem, and American Express. And that’s just the A’s. We are trusted by 100% of the Fortune 100 because we understand that collaboration is about more than just seeing each other - it’s about fueling each other. More than 7 million people across global enterprises and small teams come to us when they are looking to transform the way they work together. InVision’s platform, education, and community enable businesses to work across distances and disciplines to unlock the expertise of every team member and deliver powerful business results.

What sets Freehand apart is not a thousand specialized bells and whistles for power-users. What is special about Freehand is the way it puts people at ease, encourages their creativity, and elevates their individual voice so that every member of a team can contribute meaningfully. Freehand is designed to be intuitive, inclusive, versatile, and enterprise ready. It is refreshingly simple, but surprisingly robust. 

We’re on a mission to transform the way people work together by helping them collaborate better. On anything. From anywhere. 

We are shaping the future of work. 

Come join us.

InVision is a globally distributed, 100% remote organization. Our internal culture is made up of diverse, collaborative connections across more than 25 countries – forming a community where everyone belongs, thrives, and grows. 

Our team is in search of a Lead Software Engineer to help us change the way digital products are designed.

We are hiring for multiple roles and we know your time is valuable. We have built a curated interview process with that in mind. As you make your way through the interview journey, you will meet members of the team that represent our Engineering organization, our teams are broken up into these core areas: 

  • Integrations: Allows InVision products to easily integrate with other design, development, and productivity tools such as Sketch, Atlassian, MSFT Teams, Slack, and more.
  • Freehand: Our online whiteboarding tool that is growing exponentially and beloved for its simplicity and ease of use. Built on top of Web GL using React and GoLang.
  • InVision Collaboration Products: Including document organization and discovery, commenting, notifications and developer tools
  • Enterprise Platform Services: Including identity management, shared services and billing
  • Studio Design Tool: Our screen design tool with real-time collaboration, responsive graphics design, advanced motion, and other capabilities. A new cloud version is in beta now.
Once you complete the interview process we will present opportunities that we feel like you would excel in and invite you to meet your hiring manager to discuss the role in more detail. 

What you’ll do:

  • Write secure, maintainable code that powers the world’s leading product design platform
  • Mentor other engineers on the team and act as a point of contact for cross-team initiatives
  • Work on a backend microservice-based architecture written in Go
  • Launch and support features that will be used by millions of people around the globe
  • Participate in code reviews and help guide software architecture decisions
  • Work with third-party APIs and do technical design to integrate them with InVision products

  • Work closely with product managers and designers to design and develop the product’s functionality, look, and feel

What you’ll bring:

  • Multiple years of experience debugging complex issues; you can debug a web application problem all the way from the browser, through the transport, through the application and servers and databases, and asynchronous queues. Logs and core dumps don’t frighten you.
  • An affinity for creating software that is high quality, extensible, performant, and easy to read
  • Curiosity to iterate and improve on solutions; you view unknowns as creative problems and enjoy them
  • Use of continuous integration and delivery technologies at an expert level; you have the ability and interest to teach others best practices
  • Motivation to understand the business, our users, their requirements, and to deliver results
  • Passion for continued learning and a track record of picking up new technologies and skills as you ship awesome code
