Invide is a group of top emerging developers and entrepreneurs you’ve probably never heard of
We believe in remote work as the future of work, and we are connected globally. We are motivated to be the best in the field and make an impact in this world.
We passionately protest mediocrity and we don’t compromise on quality. People should be judged by their abilities, effort, and achievement and not some absurd reason like location. We are connecting the best out there with the teams that impact lives.
Everything we do, we do working fully remotely and only with the highest of standards. People tell us that it’s impossible and it is...by their standards. We make it happen every single day. And we do it through the art and science called Invide Labs.
We are Inviders, and this is our story!
Why It All Started
(Answered by founder of Invide, Pradeep)
As a developer, I wanted to make an impact in the world. You see, we live in a world which moves unmovable boundaries almost daily. And I knew that if I wanted to make an impact, I needed to find my tribe - a group of highly skilled people, the top 5% of the world in their field. But it wasn’t only about the technical skills, it was about more.
I needed to find people who will be my tribe and my cult - people with a “growth mindset”, an impeccable work ethic, and simply a great attitude towards work & life. So I looked around but couldn’t find those people in my surroundings. I only looked at my physical surroundings. I needed to inspect people from all over the world - people who have all of this.
Why should the limit be the physical surroundings? We are living in the internet era where your location is a non-factor. If I wanted the best, I needed to look on every corner of the world.
Can you just imagine the collective power of all of these smart people around the world? I did, and it didn’t just stop at my imagination.
We believe in high-standards at Invide Labs and if I wanted to find the best of the best, I needed to have a great screening process.
Because the best talent is out there, it was just about finding it. There is a reason why 68% of all software projects fail and that is the compromise you make with the quality of people who work on the project.
So here is what we did at Invide Labs:
The screening process takes
2-7 weeks to start and then it lasts around 3 weeks we do this now within 48 hrs. And out of 10 000 applications we had so far, we only had 1.2% acceptance rate. But that 1.2% are all smart, reliable, have strong fundamentals, problem-solving skills and experience building software/apps. These people are at least 3 times more productive than an average developer. And we call them Inviders here.
So what do we do with those highly skilled and productive developers?
We connect the best people with the best opportunities.
Everyone deserves to work on meaningful, challenging and stimulating work that can create the impact bigger than an individual.
So with our 100% remote work environment, we started focusing only on delivering the biggest value and impact. And that kind of attitude sends a message, a message that immediately pisses some people off, but it also attracts some people. And at Invide Labs, we want people who like and understand this message.
So how exactly Invide network adds value to community members?
- Referrals to companies for high paying work opportunities, with a special focus on full time(long term) remote work opportunities
- Many of these work opportunities are well researched passive job opportunities which are not advertised anywhere else
- And once you join the network, it doesn't require you to do anything actively, you get email notifications when some company shows interest to interview you
- Support to grow in career with activities such as free giveaways from partner companies and advice
- Opportunities to build your personal brand with different activities such as opportunities to speak at conferences and showcase your talent via our newsletter and conference such as gitcommit.show
- We keep adding more and more value by sourcing relevant opportunities for the community members. Details about some benefits can be shared only on community chats due to the nature(exclusivity) of those benefits.
We want people who want the best out there from their work. People who measure value and impact instead of mere attendance.
Everyone told us that it’s impossible. And it is...for them. But here we are, making it happen every single day.
We Inviders are passionately fighting mediocrity, we are in the top 5% in the world in our fields, enjoying life & work and have a “growth mindset.”
We are Inviders and this is our story!
