Who We Are

Vista is the leading technology investment firm focusing exclusively on software, data, and technology-enabled companies. With our partners, existing customers, products and people, we are excited to launch the company to a higher orbit.

SecureLink is the leading platform for secure, remote support of enterprise software. Our customers are top-tier names in healthcare, gaming, government, retail, legal and other highly-regulated industries.

SecureLink's world headquarters in West Austin is called the Hill Country Space Ship - a great facility we believe you would be proud to call your workplace. https://www.securelink.com/about/tourthespaceship/

Location

Rising from the hill country on the western edge of Austin, the SecureLink Space Ship was built for the special astronauts who work here every day.

An Insider's view of SecureLink

What's something quirky about your company?

It's our ode to space missions and astronauts! Walk inside and you'll find life-sized model astronauts, conference rooms named after astronauts, space wallpaper, space mission posters, and more. To drive this theme home, every new employee is encouraged to try out the space simulator in our room dedicated to virtual reality (it's awesome!).

Ike

Sales Operations

What projects are you most excited about?

We just completed a super cool project to statistically understand the profile of a "likely buyer" and assign a letter grade to prospects in our database. It's the sort of project we are lucky to do regularly at SecureLink - it's challenging, highly cross-functional, highly strategic, and very impactful to our business.

Rob

VP of Product Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

Intelligence, creativity and a “play to win” attitude. We have a top of the line product and pride ourselves in providing a top of the line sales/support/implementation experience for our customers.

Carrie

Customer Success Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Our goals driven management process, which allows every employee to define what they think they should do every quarter, helps foster creativity because it's a bottom-up process and not just management telling everyone what they need to do. Some of the best ideas in our company's history have come from motivated individuals via this process.

Joe

CEO

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The best idea wins. It’s a perspective that permeates the whole company - we’ve even formalized it into the way we run things, we call it the goals process. Everyone decides which efforts they think are most critical, then makes it happen. It’s a bottom up way to make sure the best ideas win and our company keeps moving in the right direction.

CTO
