3. InVision is Hiring a Customer Success Manager
We wrote about this company in another work-from-home round-up when it was seeking an agent. Now, it needs a customer success manager.

It was also voted one of Glassdoor’s best places to work in 2017.
As its customer success manager, you’re in charge of helping people utilize the InVision platform by showcasing best practices and engaging with the design community.
You need design experience. You should know your way around Photoshop and Sketch, for example. You should also be experienced with InVision and other prototyping tools.
