ABOUT ENVOY

Envoy’s mission is to challenge the status quo of workplace technology. Our story started at the front desk, where signing in with paper and pen used to be the norm. Envoy set a new standard, and now visitors everywhere are signing in on iPads. We've helped customers like Slack, Box, Github and Pinterest welcome over 27 million visitors in more than seven thousand offices worldwide.

We’re not stopping in the lobby, and we hope you won’t either. We believe you should demand more from the tools you use all around the office. That’s why we’re building a world where technology is seamlessly woven throughout the workplace—where smart tools lessen your workload and brighten your day.

If this world sounds exciting, we'd love for you to help us build it.
