What it Takes to be an Anaplan Disruptor!

Lianne Gong

Sr. Recruiter

At Anaplan, we live these four core values everyday:

  • Disruption
  • Speed
  • Accountability
  • Integrity

We take these Core Values to heart, in everything that we do, in all facets of the work we do.  We strive to hire only those who fully embody these traits, and want to be a part of building the Anaplan story.

But, every company will tell you that they want people who represent their core values.  How do we distinguish between job seekers that say they like to “be a part of something disruptive” or “be held accountable for the success of the company” and those who will really help us build upon our strong foundation? What are the traits that help us identify our next Anaplan disruptor to add to the team?

I posed those questions to our recruiting team. After all, they’re our first line of defense in our recruiting process.  They’re the ones who interact with our candidates day in and day out; they are directly responsible for identifying and attracting the A-Player caliber talent that we want to help bring Anaplan to the next level.

Collectively, the recruiters agree the following traits are what make for a great potential “Disruptor”:

  • Passion – We are looking for folks who believe in the product and the vision of what we are trying to accomplish.  Do you have a passion for what you do?  Do you have a passion for what we do? What is it that is driving you to Anaplan? Why do you want to work with us?
  • Savvy / Business Acumen – We are looking for the best and brightest to join our team.  We want to know you know your line of business.  What makes you the best sales representative / product manager / marketing manager?  Why do you want to do [that job role] at Anaplan?
  • Motivated – Anaplan is moving fast, and we are not showing any signs of slowing down.  The Disruptors we hire are excited to join us on this thrilling ride.  We each are accountable for what we do, and for what defines our own success.  Are you ready to take charge of the opportunity in front of you at Anaplan?  How will you lead with heart, charge, and conviction?

Checking for the above traits is core to our process to ensure we identify the best future Disruptors from our candidate pool. We take this differentiator very seriously, and know our focus on finding candidates who align with this value in particular is a key to our company’s success.
