Experience designer: Tasi, Research Services Sales Development Representative
I am an experience designer; I love to create fun and impactful experiences for people around me. I try to fill my life with memorable experiences, whether it's with my family (my wife and two kids), at work, or with friends. I really connected with Qualtrics, because at its core, it is an experience management organization that optimizes any targeted experience.
I really connected with Qualtrics when I heard Ryan Smith speak about the experience gap and XM platform at the 2018 X4 summit. I knew right away that this was a company that I would love to work for and I finally made it here after 3 years!
What was the turning point where you knew you 'had to have the job' at Qualtrics?
It's been 3 years since I've graduated college, and my friends that started working here post-graduation are still here and love their jobs. After seeing the growth opportunities and culture, I was sold.
What does your day look like?
I just started, but as an SDR 1, I will spend all day prospecting sales opportunities.
You moved to Provo, right? We'd love to hear what brought you here.
I moved to Provo in 2016 from Las Vegas to attend BYU and marry the girl of my dreams. At the time I was living in Las Vegas and going to school at UNLV but I was dating a girl at BYU. Long story short, we got engaged and I moved to Provo, transferred to BYU, and now we've been married for 5 years.
Any tips for someone in general?
Never stop learning and growing!
What made you want to get into sales?
I am a very competitive and goal-driven person. I also love to connect with people and form new relationships.
What are your aspirations for your career and life?
Right now I want to be an account executive.
What's a favorite moment/memory of your time at Qualtrics so far?
One of my first TGITs was the one with Ryan and Zig, having the first in-office TGIT since the pandemic started. The energy they brought was awesome and got me so pumped to be here and start selling!
What 3 words would you use to describe Qualtrics to someone?
Experience Management. TACOS.
How do you feel you've been able to apply what you studied at school to your career?
I studied Experience Design & Management. I started off my career in event management, then moved to sales. In both fields, you are constantly managing experiences, couldn't be more applicable!
