Tuba, tell us a bit about your background and what has brought you to Quickbase?
I grew up in Turkey and studied for computer engineering in Istanbul. After receiving my undergraduate degree, I went directly into system technology consulting. I moved to the U.S. to get my MBA at Northwestern University and spent 4 years at McKinsey post-graduation. I later joined venture-backed technology companies to drive business strategy and operations, including Qualtrics, which was sold to SAP for $8B a couple of days before its planned IPO.
What has brought me to Quickbase is a very strong product that customers love. I also believe this is just the beginning for the no-code/low-code space. There is a ton of adoption in the market and a huge opportunity for us to be a part of this growth story. I also wanted to join this visionary leadership team that has a focus on diversity and inclusion. Finally, getting to work with Vista Equity Partners on their best practices is a huge plus to this role, because they have proven to be very successful.
