I currently oversee our design and product management teams for our Studio and Craft products. I’m a part of what some refer to internally as the InVision 'OG crew’. I started when we were about 30 employees. It's hard to believe that 4 years later we’ve grown to 700+ folks fully distributed around the globe.
I started at InVision as a product designer but quickly took on the role of ‘infrastructure builder’ within the company at our CEO’s request. I was blessed to have been given the opportunity and trust by senior leadership to build out several teams in rapid succession hot on the heels of our Series A and B rounds. I founded our original research, product management, customer experience, and partnership practices.
To be honest, I’m not A+ at any one thing, but I think I’m B+ in a fair amount. That sort of ‘degraded polymath’ mentality has enabled me to touch and shape a fair amount of the business over the years. I’ve really enjoyed mapping out unknown and complex areas for the business, putting into place connective structures/processes that make that unknown tangible, hiring people who are WAY better at a given area than myself, and then getting out of the way as quickly as possible so those far more skilled individuals can be successful.
