Elise

Manager, Software Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Qualtrics as a marketer, but I had a passion for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) stemming from my background as an openly gay black man. I have since landed my dream job as global DEI lead, where I’ve turned my passion and purpose into a career. Many people at Qualtrics have built careers off finding and fixing experience gaps.

Farren

Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

My team takes ownership of programs/processes that impact Qualtrics across engineering and in some cases across the company. Our ideas can have varied impacts, from multi-year investments in key product capabilities to incremental process improvements in our software deployment and release cycles. My team is in the middle of it all.
