Working for impact: Ethan, IT Analyst
I want to use my career to provide fulfillment for me and my family, fight for climate change and inequality solutions, and use technical solutions to make people's lives easier. Qualtrics connects with this as the Qualtrics culture aligns with my beliefs, and puts a lot of faith in its employees, which allows me to perform in a way that I feel is impactful.
What was the turning point where you knew you 'had to have the job' at Qualtrics?
When I talked with my interviewers and read about the company culture.
What does your day look like?
I work on automation, help people solve issues, and talk with vendors.
What is your favorite part of your role?
Developing highly technical solutions that require critical and creative thinking.
What has surprised you most about working at Qualtrics?
The focus on avoiding the "always-on" culture. The companies I worked at previously pressured people to work more than 40 hours on average, and it's refreshing to see that isn't the case here.
What is your top #LifeHack?
Tracking my work in a hard-copy notebook. This allows me to focus and avoid the distractions of a computer.
What 3 words would you use to describe Qualtrics to someone?
Progressive. Adaptable. Driven.
