Hiring World Class Talent

Attracting and Retaining a Diverse and Inclusive Workforce

Our ability to power prosperity for our customers starts and ends with our employees. They are the heart of our company. It’s because of this, we place a unique focus on the hiring and welcoming process. We want to – and do – attract and retain a diverse pipeline of talent by setting them up for success on day one, for the right role. We know that when employees are prospering, and feel that they can bring their whole selves to work, that pride and passion translates into a unique culture that has been recognized as one of the world’s best and most innovative places to work.

Tech Women @ Intuit

Tech Women @ Intuit, our global initiative to recruit, retain and advance technical women, plays a huge part in helping us recruit mid-career talent. Tech Women @ Intuit offers a full lineup of events and professional development resources to identify those further along in their career and expose them to Intuit’s culture.

Co-ops and Interns

At Intuit, over three-hundred of the smartest and most capable interns and co-ops join our company across North America every year. They serve in all of Intuit’s major business units and functions doing real work with real impact. Over the course of their time at Intuit, interns and co-ops are offered training to help them learn and grow, so that their first code to production can be achieved by their third day on the job. After completing a co-op or intern assignment, many (approximately 80 percent) are offered full-time positions with Intuit after graduation and choose to start their professional journey with us.

Elevate Talent

Intuit participated as a Co-creator of the Elevate Talent Stage at the 2019 Elevate Tech Festival. This conference brought together a dedicated tech talent audience comprising of those who are looking to enter the workforce and talent/HR professionals who are looking to grow and expand their team. David Thompson, Director of TurboTax Product Development, led an engaging panel discussion with App partners on the state of technology innovation in Canada. In addition, Melika Hope, QuickBooks Head of Product, moderated a fireside chat on the changing face of Canada’s technology workforce, and the importance of a diverse workforce, with Michele Romanow of Clearbanc.

Developing our People

Investing in our Greatest Asset

At Intuit, we’re in the people business. And because our people are our greatest asset, we continually invest in growing and developing our people so they can do the best work of their lives. Our development programs – from workshops to experiential training and opportunities to coach and teach – flex to meet the needs of each individual, building capabilities and giving employees new, refreshed and strategic opportunities to grow personally and professionally. Developing our people is part of how we power prosperity for our employees and for our customers around the world.

TechCon 2019

TechCon is an internal Intuit event for technologists, run by technologists. It’s a day dedicated to giving our Intuit tech community time to learn, share, inspire, and become inspired together. The 2019 TechCon theme is Inspire. What inspires us? Great leaders? New ideas? A chance to explore the unknown? At Intuit, we’re inspired by the chance to power prosperity for our customers; for the small business owners following their dreams, for the taxpaying families striving and saving.

Global Engineering Days

Global Engineering Days is a time for technologists, to foster autonomy, mastery and purpose in our engineering community. It's a chance to focus on an area of passion - a bug we are eager to fix, a feature we wanted to add, a flow that needs fixing, etc. It's an opportunity to use Intuit standards like Modern SaaS Platform for service development, UX Fabric for front end development and principles of Open Source and Contribution for all. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to hone in on our customer obsession, unleash our “inner engineers” and write Beautiful Code that's production ready. Global Engineering Days is an opportunity for engineers and data scientists to use their voice and feel empowered to lead, contribute and solve big customer problems.

LinkedIn Profile Refresh

At Intuit, we want to put our people in the best light. Throughout the year, we offer employees the chance to stand out from the crowd with complimentary professional headshots done on-site. We also facilitate workshops and one-on-one sessions to update employee Linkedin profiles with Intuit-themed banners that showcase our people/culture, catchy headlines and their new headshots. Profile Refresh sessions also assist employees to showcase their professional values (in writing) as they take the time to reflect on their talents and discover what challenges them in their professional and personal growth journeys. We want our employees to look and feel good about the way they present themselves - whether it is in person or online, so that they showcase the Intuit brand with pride.
