We are Invisible’s Technologies Team. We solve problems at scale so they never happen again. At our best, we solve problems before they happen. How?
-- Invisible is a world-changing company and the Technologies Team is responsible for creating the systems that will launch Invisible into the stratosphere
-- Exponential gains from systems > Short term linear work > Systems for systems sake
-- Consistent feedback is key - we are addicted to learning and getting better
-- What one of us knows, all of us should know
-- Every new mistake is a learning opportunity
-- Distributed approaches and centralized intelligence merge. Each teammate is constantly innovating and trying something new. Every mistake is prevented by all. Every success is learned by all.
-- Each of us contains the sum of the knowledge, intelligence, and creativity of our entire team.
-- We evolve and mutate constantly like an organism, identifying successful and problematic tactics and incorporating ideas from any source.
-- Polymaths and independent thinkers
-- Someone who is unlike anyone else on the team
-- A master of both empathy and logic, capable of charming customers and solving any problem
Polymathic background and successful track record are great indicators, but specific experience matters less to us than diversity of thought and the ability to deliver value.
The best team is one that learns as one. The best team member is someone who offers the most unique perspective. The only required commonalities are excellent communication, logic, and empathy. Communication increases alignment speed. Logic ensures alignment accuracy. Empathy makes it not just a group but a team.
-- Systemic improvement - Don’t just follow orders. Question them. Question everything. Make improvements to how we work, not just our team, but the entire company.
-- Problem identification - Dig deep into our customers problems to find the root cause and what’s at stake
-- Problem solving - Creatively work to identify lean/MVP solutions that will quickly solve the root problem while simultaneously planning for the long-term
-- Shipping - Deliver results with speed and quality
-- Effective management and delivery - Coordinate the completion of projects on time while working with Design and Engineering
What we will create together
-- Teamwork - A culture where personal and team growth thrive and we become better every single week
-- Growth - Tenaciously improve yourself day after day at an exponential rate, and bring the company with you
Specifically, a Product Manager will
-- Talk to client to understand and validate problems
-- Prioritize problems and expose to the squad to come up with a viable configuration for solving everything
-- Come up with spec of problem (with eng)
-- Hold team accountable to self-set deadlines (pressure based on priorities and overall vision)
-- Deliver and QA the feature (this is the feedback loop of development, it gives context of the actual state of the product)
-- You will work on the most important problem - We always solve the most important problem and prioritize to make effective use of our time.
-- You will never do the same thing twice - Do it once, learn, systematize, automate, upgrade. We are exponential.
-- You will never work on a problem that should have been prevented - Prioritize, execute, and prevent future problems.
-- You will systematize or document most things - Creating systems checks if you really understand what you're doing, allows others to analyze for improvements, and means the entire team upgrades together.
-- You will make mistakes - That’s okay. This is how we learn. Prevent the mistake from happening again.
-- You will be empowered and encouraged to act with creativity - We have no limits. Every team member is empowered to upgrade our collective intelligence with new ideas. Act with moxie. Act with creativity. Act with inspiration.
“The culture is imbued with romantic capitalist values. These are just a few:
“Do it because you want to do something on the edge of hard and impossible. Do it if you are the unstoppable force seeking an immovable object. You want to see what you’re made of. Do it if you want to test your limits: your ability to create order in chaos, to operate under extreme stress, to achieve impossible goals…
Do it because you personally want a synthetic intelligence. Do it because you want to solve the biggest problem in the world: wasted time. Do it if you want humans to spend less time doing robotic jobs, and more time being creative and strategic.”
So what do you say, will you join us?
