What is an Agent?
An Agent is a member of Invisible’s elite workforce.
Who are the Agents?
Invisible’s agents are an international group of passionate, restless humans striving to constantly grow, learn, and build a better future for themselves and the world.
An agent is…
— a father in the Philippines, providing for his whole family.
— a college student in Kenya, searching for a bright future.
— a stay-at-home mom in Texas, desiring to learn but constrained at home.
— a high school student in Ohio, frustrated by a dysfunctional school system.

An agent is you.
What do Operators do?
The Operator is the starting position of Invisible’s Agents. Operators are the frontline of the Digital Assembly Line. As its name implies, the operator operates. They are the infantry that makes up most of our workforce, doing work for clients, executing Process instructions, and organizing data.
What does an Operator do?
An operator reads the instructions of a process and operates them to accomplish work for a client.
- Example: an operator will read these instructions (screenshot) to send a legal agreement.
Assigned to a prime.
A prime is a group of processes. An operator is assigned to a Prime, or a series of primes, to gain expertise in related processes. In a prime, an operator will interact closely with the Manager and other operators of that prime.
- Example: an operator assigned to the Calendar prime will do processes like “Scheduling a Meeting”, “Sending a Reminder”, “Sending a Daily Agenda”, etc.
Communicates with clients.
An operator will communicate to the client according to the instructions of a process. Much of this communication is templated in a process, but it will stray from the instructions from time-to-time and the operator will need to create a unique response. When communicating to a client, an operator will have to write in the voice of the client’s synthetic Assistant, and not in the operator’s own voice.
- Example: John Keats is the assistant for client Francis Pedraza. When responding to Francis, the operator will have to be communicating in the voice of John Keats.
An operator gives feedback on process instructions to other agents, who upgrades the process based on that feedback. This feedback can be proactive from the operator seeing potential improvements, or reactive from the operator making an implicit mistake that can be avoided with clearer instructions.
- Proactive Example: an operator realizes that two steps involving navigating a website can be consolidated into one step, with a link leading to the desired destination. The operator will give the builder constructive feedback and offer a suggestion on how to upgrade the process.
- Reactive Example: an operator uses the wrong format to name a calendar event, but it was never stated to use that format in the process. The operator will then let the builder know of this mistake and offer a suggestion on how to upgrade the process.
An operator tracks the time it takes for them to operate an instance of a specific process.
An operator tracks every instance of process operation for a specific client in the client’s dashboard—located in a Google Sheet. The operator also logs any mistake they make and any preference the client sets.
- Example: an operator will track the name of the prime, process, and specific instance, along with start and end dates, and the minutes it took to complete the instance.
