An Insider's view of Q2

What are some social events your company does?

At Q2, community is in our hearts. Q2'ers pursue their philanthropic passions to build strong and diverse communities worldwide. We host a HUGE annual Dodgeball fundraising event for the Juvenile Diabetes (JDRF) in Austin. Other companies play with us. I love our annual "circle of awesomeness" employee recognition event, and day of recognition.

Kelley

Sr. Community & Culture Champion

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have such a collaborative and friendly environment, it's truly authentic and very different from other companies. We're genuinely happy to invest in each other's success and our ability to learn (both technically and personally ) as a team. Q2'ers are really good people I admire and have fun with, at work and socially.

Mo

Staff Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out as an individual contributor, ultimately finding my passion as a Product Management Leader. Leadership here including SVPs, VPs and Directors in our Product and Engineering groups show a genuine and active interest in mentoring to aid in our career growth. I also like our “Q2 EDU” learning platform.

Clayton

Manager, Product Management

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

It's important to see yourself as being part of something bigger then ourselves. Learning about people, and not just the work they're doing, but who they are, helps you become an empathetic and more effective leader. Tapping into what people *love* doing, and finding opportunities to match their passion and skills in their work is what we do!

Sherril

VP, Product and Engineering

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The culture at Q2 is unlike any other company I’ve ever worked for. You can feel the genuine desire others have to help you succeed and move towards your career goals. I believe in our 10 Guiding Principles and see the same beliefs in our peers – it’s a part of our culture and daily life! There is also a strong ERG community promoting diversity.
