Sasan kickstarted his innings as the CEO of Intuit two years back with the launch of his grand vision called the ‘Five Big Bets.’
True to what he had said back then, these five big bets have been sparking a movement across the company to accelerate powering prosperity around the world.
These bets have helped the employees find a direction where we could concentrate our energy and passion.
Intuit’s open contribution philosophy brings teams together to collaborate and amplify our speed to deliver awesome for our customers. With the adoption of open contribution, we have witnessed an increase in developer productivity with organized code repositories and ease of development tools set up. Quick ramp up for new hires and increased skill sets and delight for engineers, and promotion of Intuit-wide tools across different sites are some additional benefits that we are observing.
To encourage open contribution and one Intuit innovations we have org wide, global tech events – the Global Engineering Days (GED) and TechCon. We also organize tech fests like Hacktoberfest which further promotes collaborated ideation, innovation and open contribution.
Our patent program, where we organize multiple events, is a cornerstone of our tech engagement programs. There is a Quarterly Patent workshop at Intuit India along with half an hour of office hours for employees to reach out to the patent team to get all the info they need about filling a patent, the process & timeline.
We recognise people at every stage of their participation in the patent process – from idea submission to patent filing and finally defensive publication.
One of the inspiring fundamentals of Intuit’s tech philosophy is the thought process; we try to fall in love with the problem, not with the solution. That happens because the problem is defined against which the various solutions are going to be evaluated. I feel once we are aligned on the principles, then there is no conflict about solutions because then it's a very objective evaluation. And this is very unique and very inspiring for Intuit specifically
Jyoti Ahuja – Director - Product Development, while in conversation with our Great Places to Work ambassador Disha Mittal.
An innovative and entrepreneurial culture is essential for any company to be extremely customer-obsessed. Especially with Identity, the customer problems we solve are massive at scale, demanding thinking beyond the ordinary. One recent example I would like to pick is the "next-gen Adaptive Authorization platform" we are working on, which helps customers access their data more securely and safely. The whole concept started as a brown bag topic, then a GED idea, and now more close to reality. I want to thank Team Intuit for giving us the time and opportunity to listen to the customers, understand their pain points, and help them prosper.
Vinodh Palaniappan, Senior Product Manager
I think what is really strong and important about the way that Intuit approaches technology, is that it starts with the customer. We pride ourselves on being able to deeply understand customer pain points. Intuit is one of those rare technology companies that has always kept the customer in focus. Everything starts with the customer and I think that's absolutely the way it should be, and the focus is on using technology to solve the problems of the customer.
