An Insider's view of Apptio

What are some social events your company does?

Apptio has an annual company holiday party and an annual company summer picnic. In Products & Engineering, we also have release parties, hackathons, white elephant gift exchanges, and teams occasionally host a 'Bite of Apptio', which is a food happy hour with different themes. The social events are a great way to meet coworkers from other teams!

What does career growth look like on your team?

Each person is empowered to make choices every day that have direct impact on everyone's success. All ideas are given fair consideration. In my 5+ years here I have seen great career growth - everything from junior engineers right out of college up to highly experienced leaders encouraged to take that next big step.

Tanner Means

Senior Software Development Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I constantly ask what is speeding them up or slowing them down. I ask for things to be thought of as "what if" and "why not". Oftentimes, especially in a team setting, a solution is simpler than expected. Collectively, we can solve most problems on our own, but for the things that need muscle or grease, I make those my priority.
