Why Qualtrics – Justin Kenter – Associate Manager, EX Technology Consulting – Seattle, WA
At Qualtrics we want to connect our people to careers that feed their purpose; jobs that motivate & inspire them. This is Justin’s “Why Qualtrics” story.
One of the most valuable components of a job for me is seeing the real-world value I’m helping to deliver. EmployeeXM helps us enable companies to improve the lives of their employees, in a world where people spend so much of their lives at work.
What attracted you to Qualtrics in the first place?
The people are so intelligent and easy to talk to. I actually enjoy feeling like I’m the dumbest person in the room! It challenges me to do and be better than I am. I haven’t stopped learning or growing professionally since I joined.
What is your favorite part of your role?
I enjoy interacting with a variety of people during the workday. I could be on a call with a client in the morning and in a conference room with the product team brainstorming functionality for a new product feature in the afternoon. Variety is the spice of life.
