An Insider's view of QuestionPro

What's something quirky about your company?

Once a month we do an internal Innovation Hour. All teams, all 5 regions come together for an hour to solve some of our internal roadblocks. Marketing not getting enough case studies, everyone spent an hour and we ended up with 55 different case studies. The product team needs more testers on a new feature, we all dive in for dogfooding and QA.

What is your vision for the company?

My goal is to get researchers to truly advance research. We build software that researchers actually want and we do it because it will truly advance the science of research. Not just make us a buck (which it will) - but I can sleep well at night knowing that we are innovating and advancing the science of research for our customers.
