Mark, Principal Technology Consultant, on his Qualtrics career
I have always liked new things. New gadgets, new places to visit, new people to meet, and so on.
When I learned of an opportunity at Qualtrics it looked like the perfect workplace to satisfy my pursuit of the new.
What attracted you to Qualtrics in the first place?
What attracted me to Qualtrics was the product. The idea of combining fact-based operational data with experience data was beyond fascinating, especially here in Japan where paper surveys are still very prevalent.
What was the turning point where you knew you 'had to have the job' at Qualtrics?
When I had an online interview with the Provo office and I saw dogs walking around the office outside of the meeting room.
What does your day look like?
I typically start my day with a cup (or two, or three) of coffee and plan out my day. From there I typically spend half my time communicating with the customer and the other communicating internally or on the Qualtrics platform.
What is your favorite part of your role?
My favorite part of the role is the fact that I get to work within a great team. I know that I can always count on my implementation colleagues for both technical knowledge and also for the latest memes.
You’ve been with us for a while now, so why is it still Qualtrics for you? How has Qualtrics lived up to your expectations? How has it been different?
I joined Qualtrics Japan when the number of employees was still in the single digits. Now we have over 40 people and growing. While the office has grown, the spirit of TACOS has not changed in the office.
What 3 words would you use to describe Qualtrics to someone?
New, progressive, fun.
