An Insider's view of Alteryx, Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our culture is casual, but we're driven and work hard! We're empowered to be independent, creative, and innovative. Not only do we care about our platform, but we are deeply passionate about how the work we do impacts the community and our world.

Katelyn

Office Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Bringing Alteryx to more people; democratizing our platform.

Simon

Team Lead, DX

How does the company support your career growth?

Alteryx walks the walk when it comes to supporting individual career goals. We have so many career planning resources and programs, but what differentiates Alteryx is the way everyone rallies around you to make sure you reach those goals. I've set aggressive career ambitions, plus pursuing my MBA! It's like the whole company is cheering for me.

Emily Singer

Manager, Public Relations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team members to spend time learning - whether it's joining on-site study sessions to learn more about our product, to participating in Alteryx Academy. I think having a commitment to constant learning and self-improvement allows for creativity to flourish and opens up the doorway to new ideas.

Stephanie

Manager, Product Management Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Not being afraid to speak out is key. I think everyone (man or woman) is familiar with the scenario of being overshadowed in a meeting by someone with the same idea, but a louder voice. When you are the only woman on a team, ​I believe this happens more often. Take risks and be the person to speak out no matter what!
