Apptio – Why Work For Us?


Many IT leaders are reinventing themselves with a new set of skills and better business management systems. IT’s job description is changing to encompass more responsibilities and IT leaders must now act as the corporate leader who can manage the cost, quality and value of technology across the company.

Modern IT leaders focus on delivering better value for the spend, offering the right services, at the right quality, and the right price. They are driving a dialogue about cost, quality, consumption, and value between the IT department, the finance department, and the business units using language that everyone can understand. They are driving technology innovation. Modern IT leaders do this by using a Technology Business Management (TBM) system.

Our suite of applications combines adaptive data management, visual modeling, and self-service analytics — all built on an extensible platform, delivered as a service.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Apptio.


    A third party recruiter reached out to me based on my background. This recruiter told me that they were having difficulty finding someone with my skills and experience, and told me so. She seemed excited to have found a qualified candidate in me, and setup an appointment with a manager at Apptio. Exactly 24 hours before my scheduled appointment time, the manager called me. I was a bit surprised, and checked my email confirmation. I was correct, the person called me a day early. I said nothing about the schedule, and proceeded with the interview, that went well. This person described the next steps in the interview process, and we agreed that I would coordinate with the recruiter. I immediately followed up by email with the recruiter as to the next steps, and also regarding a question in the interview process. I received no response. I tried to call the voice mail several times over many days, but the box was always full and would not accept any messages. After a couple of weeks, I finally received a response via email and setup an appointment for a follow-up call. About the time the call was to begin, I received an email asking to postpone one day. We setup a new time, but I was never called. I again tried to contact via email and phone, with the same results - no response. I finally received a response another week later with an apology, and a promise to call that day or the next. And following the same pattern, I was never contacted. About one month later (yes, ONE MONTH, and about two months after my initial phone call with the recruiter), the recruiter's assistant emailed me to ask if we ever had a chance to speak. I explained that there were repeated appointment times that were either rescheduled or missed, and that my emails went unanswered. She apologized and told me that she would setup an appointment for later that week. I never heard from them again. And I gave up pursuing any opportunities with Apptio. I believe that the way a company treats you during the interview process is a good indication of how they will treat you as an employee.
