I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (this month is InvisionApp)
Forge Portland

We are super-thrilled to welcome our October special guest, Dana Lawson. Dana is the VP of Platform Engineering at InvisionApp. And the cool part is InvisionApp is a very remote-friendly company (more about this at the meetup session). Dana Lawson on LinkedIn: Invision on Twitter:

Dana and I worked together at New Relic for about a year. The first thing anyone notices about Dana is her electrifying energy and her sharp sense of humor. You can tell right away that working with her would be super-fun and you could get lots of things accomplished with little or no stress. Dana’s illustrious career record proves my theory :) Dana had great opportunities to wear many hats throughout her 18 year career in technology.

Earlier this year, Dana wanted to take these lessons learned from being in that crazy world and do it all over again, but better! So when the opportunity came to build out a Platform Engineering organization at InVision she decided to take that chance.

This is just a teaser for all the goodness you can expect at the actual meetup. As always, you have our PERSONAL GUARANTEE that this meetup is the best value for your precious ~2 hours away from friends/family :)

PayTace is a super unique “remote-first” company. They are based out of Spokane, WA but most of the technology and business development staff members are based all over WA, OR and Idaho! Over the years, they built a very robust remote-first culture and have been thriving the last couple years. The company is growing at 35% per year and adding a lot of new tech staff (developers, QA and infrastructure folks). PayTrace has also built an intentional culture and goes to great lengths to nourish their values and build a great team-oriented workplace. They currently use the following technologies: Ubuntu, python, ruby, Ruby-on-rails, PostgresSQL, SQL Alchemy etc.

Really Working from Home: How to get the most out of your now remote employment

With the onset of quarantine and social distancing, many of us have been settling into a somewhat surreal semblance of remote work. It doesn't feel quite right. But we're doing our best to fake it. And because of that we're not really working from home.

PIE wants to help. That's why we've assembled a panel of PIE mentors: one who helps lead a successful remote only company, one who has worked as a remote employee for a decade while working alongside an online school student, and one who has assembled the most fervent community of remote workers on the planet — all while leading a remote company, himself.

Join these incredibly insightful PIE mentors for an open and honest discussion about how to be truly successful as a remote employee. And how to manage remote teams. And deal with all the life that happens when that life all happens in a single place.

Any question you've had about working from home, these folks are going to be able to answer.

Invited panelists

  • Barrett Brooks, ConvertKit
  • Cami Kaos, Automattic
  • Darren Buckner, Workfrom
