Envoy makes workplaces work better. With a focus on the details, we craft beautiful, modern software that elevates the workplace experience. Companies like Slack, Pinterest, Spotify, Nike, and American Express have worked with Envoy to welcome over 30 million visitors to more than 10,000 locations around the world. We are proudly backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Menlo Ventures, Initialized Capital, and many others.

Our mission is to challenge the status quo of workplace technology. This idea started at the front desk, where we set a new standard for visitor sign-in. Now, we’re looking around the office—to the mailroom, meeting rooms and beyond—and asking how can we make this better, too? We envision a world where technology is woven through our workplaces, all of it working together to make our time there delightful.

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


Envoy is growing fast (getting close to 100 people) and with growth comes a ton of opportunities to use Data Analysis to solve problems, improve processes and simply make better decisions.
We value being a top-notch organization with a strong data and engineering-driven culture, and have the same high standards with our data, code, systems, and people.  We value learning and growth (and not being bored) and hire fully-formed, diverse, well-rounded, communicative people we can envision being friends with and trusting.  

The Data team today is made up of full-stack data analysts / scientists and we are looking for more data nerds (sort of a hybrid data analyst / scientist w/ some engineer in them). While we like full-stack, we know that each individual will bring a different set of skills. This role is mostly focused on taking advantage of our Data infrastructure to build predictive models.

    • Partner closely with anyone and everyone across the company to extract insights, and build models to empower them with data
    • Help all sides of the business be empowered with data: Sales, Success, Marketing, Finance.
