Welcome To Invisible!

The DAL- Digital Assembly Line has created your accounts for you. Your Google Account allows access to the Company’s Google Drive and your calendar, and your email which will be in the format of name@invisible.email. You will also receive a password to your new LastPass account which you will use to log in to your other accounts.

Lastpass

As soon as you receive the e-mail from DAL head over to LastPass, scroll down to the bottom of the page and download the appropriate extension for your Operating System then sign in using your Invisible email and the LastPass password DAL emailed you- please do not change your password. (LastPass is a secure password manager technology. If you’re interested in learning more about it, click here). Once in LastPass, you will have access to all your necessary accounts to work at Invisible Technologies.

CloudApp

Visit https://www.getcloudapp.com/, scroll to the bottom and download the appropriate product for your OS. You will log in using your Invisible Gmail. CloudApp is a technology we use to quickly capture images, gifs, and videos and share them via a link. Once it is downloaded and running on your computer, you can find the icon for it on your desktop and it will pop up a menu similar to this one (for PC/ Chrome users it is located in the bottom menu bar on the right).

You can screen record a video, create a gif, screenshot, or create a screenshot with annotations. Once you capture the video or image, CloudApp copies the link to your mouse so you can paste it immediately. Others can click your link and be taken to your captured image or recording. (Note: many images on this Medium post were taken using CloudApp.) This is a great way for you to share a solution, a problem, a cute cat and more!

Download and install TorGuard, then log in with your account information from LastPass. TorGuard is VPN service so remote workers’ IP addresses come from Los Angeles. Watch this video to make sure you use Invisible’s Dedicated IP address. When you’re properly connected, your TorGuard should appear as below.

Communications:

Take a moment and read through this to see how the below tools are expected to be used and managed.

Discord

Invisible is a virtual company and so we have no formal office, but that is alright! We want to be able to reach out to you as you would in an office while allowing you to be where you, so we are using Discord! This tool is intended to be the place to be located at all times you are working, so anyone, from your team , peers or leadership can find and reach out instantly!

Slack

Next, head over to Invisible’s DAL Slack. Click to sign in and it will ask you to use your SAML, you must be logged in to your Invisible Gmail. Slack is a platform for teams to communicate via channels. If you’re unfamiliar with Slack, you should learn more here.

What you need to know is that you will communicate to your team(s) and manager(s) in Slack.

WhatsApp

Please download this app to your mobile phone for free international calling. You can find phone numbers in the Directory, and you just need to add them to your personal contacts, before attempting to use the app to call.

Payment

We send out payments every Monday. It’s very important to track your time in Hubstaff — please log in and start tracking your time under the project Meeting or Training before you join your first zoom meeting.

All Hands Meetings

You will be invited to periodic All Hands meetings for all Agents. These events should exist on the Google Calendar of your given Google account.

Once a week, all agents from a unit meet together in a Unit All Hands Meeting. This event should also exist on the Google Calendar of your given Google account. The attendance is tracked and we anticipate you being on each call to get essential updates on the company and how your role and work might be changing or enhanced!

Feel free to e-mail adam@invisiblewith any questions at all.

We are thrilled you have chosen to join the Invisible family.
