About the Team:


The Auth team builds & enhances the authentication experience of our users within the InVison ecosystem as well as integrations with our partners. This is a very impactful part of InVision as it is critical to properly verify the identity of anyone accessing our customer’s assets. We also bring a collaboration experience to our users through working with our strategic partners and integrating InVision’s capabilities directly into the products/platforms of our partners which all will require appropriate authentication services. Lastly, we are working towards evolving our platform by adding features and functionality to provide an ever growing set of tools for our users to manage access to their InVision instance. 


You will lead a team of engineers to enhance our existing authentication platform as well as enable new integrations with third-party services. You will also help drive the roadmap to evolve the platform to constantly improve our authentication capabilities. You will consult with internal client teams and partner with product managers and designers. As you partner with product and design, you will ensure our platform continues to be forward-looking to meet new product goals as well as security compliance in the future. At InVision we work in a modern web stack (React, Typescript on the front-end, Go on the back-end), and drive innovative engineering design in our core product experience.

  • Bias towards action, absolute willingness to own the problem and drive towards a speedy solution

  • A passion for operational excellence and a drive towards creating performant and reliable applications through metrics-driven decisions

  • Keen eye for details and delivering quality products on tight timelines; you can motivate your team to find solutions which may be outside of the box
