InVision is a software startup that has 700 employees, but no office space. The company was founded on remote work.
InVision’s chief people officer Mark Frein explains how the company makes it work. When InVision was founded in 2011, its CEO and founder, Clark Valberg, knew that he’d have to get creative to maintain a competitive edge. Google had recently increased its presence in Manhattan, making it all the more difficult to snag coveted East Coast tech talent. To open an office in New York’s punishing real estate market wasn’t an appealing prospect. It seemed wasteful to shell out money for office space when InVision’s core product — a software focused on augmenting the work of user experience designers — could be built entirely from a laptop.
So, why not do away with an office altogether?
Valberg decided to do exactly that. All 700 employees at this startup work remotely. Here’s why one of its top execs says it’s given them a major edge on the competition
