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. Using Apptio gives you deep visibility into the trade-offs between cost, quality, and performance so you can strategically align your operational and financial processes.

    I have been working at Apptio full-time


    Apptio tends to hire excellent people, and that makes all the difference in working here. Team dynamic is strong, and everyone is generally willing to help each other. Product does lots of things very well.


    For how "small" Apptio is, departments don't communicate as well as they could. Prioritization of product features and can be skewed more towards firefighting than innovating.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate better communication between product and engineering teams and field. We all want the same thing at the end of the day, which is to make a stronger product.

    Linux Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apptio (Bellevue, WA) in October 2015.


    Contacted by a recruiter, went to the interview session the next morning. 3x 1:1 interviews, first is with the person filling for, he leaves the following day, second is with the hiring manager, third is with a team member. Overall the first two were ok, but had to change meeting room on the third session and then all hell came loose. First of all, his body language was extremely impatient almost feeling that I am wasting his time. He first asked some technical questions and although I did answer them he didn't like how I approached the question and said he has better solutions. Then he asked hypothetical question on how I could enhance their business model with public cloud. From the recruiter and the first two sessions, I learned that they are planning to move things towards the cloud ie: AWS. I said that although I am not too familiar with their current business model but assuming that they are technical business management tool providers and have a chance to work with health care industry and would need to be HIPPA compliance. So I suggested a hybrid cloud infrastructure to integrate with already AWS HIPPA compliance infra. To my surprises he replied he doesn't trust AWS compliance and would only build everything on prem. With that statement and his previous reaction to my solutions, I don't want to work with this guy to start tug of war or getting back stabbed when upper management wants to move to cloud. After leaving the interview site I got a call from recruiter that they feel my technical skill is not in their range. I would assume that someone only wants on-prem experience or some other knowledge to serve their needs.
