Dear Fellow Stockholders:
Please join us for the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of UserTesting, Inc. As we come together for our first Annual Meeting as a public company, I'm excited about what UserTesting has achieved. Organizations continue to experiment and invest in building new experiences, while continuing to double down on their focus on customer experiences. Through all of this, organizations need direct access to human insight to uncover customer needs and expectations. For nearly a decade, we have run an annual CX Industry Survey, and we just published our latest results. This year, we continue to see organizations seeking human insight, struggling to keep up with the requests, and seeking new ways to scale continuous customer learnings throughout their organizations. I continue to believe that UserTesting has exceptional product market fit and we are working hard to deliver for our investors, customers, employees, partners and communities.
The Annual Meeting will be held exclusively online via live webcast on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. The meeting can be accessed by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USER2022, where you will be able to listen to the meeting live, submit questions, and vote online. We believe that a virtual stockholder meeting provides greater access to those who may want to attend and provides a safer forum in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore we have chosen this over an in-person meeting. This approach also lowers costs, enables participation from our global community and is better for the environment.
The matters expected to be acted upon at the Annual Meeting are described in the accompanying Notice of Annual Meeting of Stockholders and proxy statement. The Annual Meeting materials include the notice, proxy statement, and annual report, each of which has been furnished to you over the Internet or, if you have requested a paper copy of the materials, by mail.
Your vote is important. Regardless of whether you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, please cast your vote as soon as possible by Internet, telephone or, if you received a paper copy of the meeting materials by mail, by completing and returning the enclosed proxy card or voting instruction form in the postage-prepaid envelope to ensure that your shares will be represented. Your vote by written proxy will ensure your representation at the virtual Annual Meeting even if you don’t attend the meeting. Returning the proxy does not affect your right to attend and to vote your shares at the virtual Annual Meeting.
Thank you for your ongoing support of UserTesting.


By Order of the Board of Directors,

PROXY STATEMENT FOR THE 2022 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

INFORMATION ABOUT SOLICITATION AND VOTING
The accompanying proxy is solicited by the board of directors on behalf of UserTesting, Inc. for use at our 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, or Annual Meeting, to be held virtually at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USER2022 on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and any adjournment or postponement thereof. The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials and this proxy statement for the Annual Meeting, or Proxy Statement, and the accompanying form of proxy were first distributed and made available on the Internet to stockholders on or about April 20, 2022. We believe that a virtual stockholder meeting provides greater access to those who may want to attend and provides a safer forum in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore we have chosen this over an in-person meeting. This approach also lowers costs, enables participation from our global community and is better for the environment. This Proxy Statement includes information that we are required to provide to you pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and is designed to assist you in voting your shares. In this Proxy Statement, we refer to UserTesting, Inc. as “UserTesting,” “we” or “us.”
INTERNET AVAILABILITY OF PROXY MATERIALS
In accordance with SEC rules, we are using the Internet as our primary means of furnishing proxy materials to stockholders. Consequently, most stockholders will not receive paper copies of our proxy materials. We will instead send these stockholders a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials with instructions for accessing the proxy materials, including our Proxy Statement and annual report, and voting via the Internet. The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials also provides information on how stockholders may obtain paper copies of our proxy materials if they so choose. We believe this means of delivery makes the proxy distribution process more efficient, less costly, and helps in conserving natural resources.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE MEETING
Record Date; Quorum
Only holders of record of our common stock at the close of business on April 8, 2022, or the Record Date, will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. At the close of business on the Record Date, there were 142,821,099 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. For ten days prior to the Annual Meeting, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting will be available for examination by any stockholder for any purpose relating to the Annual Meeting upon a written request by such stockholder to our Investor Relations team at ir@usertesting.com. A list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting will also be available for examination on the Internet through the virtual web conference during the Annual Meeting.
The holders of a majority of the voting power of the shares of our common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting as of the Record Date must be present at the Annual Meeting in order to hold the Annual Meeting and conduct business. This presence is called a quorum. Your shares are counted as present at the Annual Meeting if you are present and vote at the Annual Meeting or if you have properly submitted a proxy.
Voting Rights; Required Vote
In deciding all matters at the Annual Meeting, as of the close of business on the Record Date, each share of common stock represents one vote. We do not have cumulative voting rights for the election of directors. You may vote all shares owned by you as of the Record Date, including (1) shares held directly in your name as the stockholder of
3


record and (2) shares held for you as the beneficial owner in street name through a broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee.
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name. If, on the Record Date, your shares were registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, then you are considered the stockholder of record with respect to those shares. As a stockholder of record, you may vote at the Annual Meeting or vote by telephone, through the Internet or, if you request or receive paper proxy materials, by filling out and returning the proxy card.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker or Nominee. If, on the Record Date, your shares were held in an account with a broker, bank, trustee or other nominee, then you are the beneficial owner of the shares held in street name. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your nominee on how to vote the shares held in your account, and your nominee has enclosed or provided voting instructions for you to use in directing it on how to vote your shares. However, the organization that holds your shares is considered the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Annual Meeting. Because you are not the stockholder of record, you may not vote your shares at the Annual Meeting unless you request and obtain a valid proxy from the organization that holds your shares giving you the right to vote the shares at the Annual Meeting.
Each director will be elected by a plurality of the votes cast, which means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of “FOR” votes will be elected. You may vote “FOR ALL NOMINEES,” “WITHHOLD AUTHORITY FOR ALL NOMINEES” or vote “FOR ALL EXCEPT” one or any of the nominees you specify. Ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022 will be obtained if the number of votes cast “FOR” the proposal at the Annual Meeting exceeds the number of votes “AGAINST” the proposal. Abstentions (shares present at the Annual Meeting and marked “abstain”) are counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present, and have no effect on the outcome of the matters voted upon.
Broker non-votes occur when shares held by a broker, bank or other nominee for a beneficial owner are not voted either because (i) the broker did not receive voting instructions from the beneficial owner, or (ii) the broker lacked discretionary authority to vote the shares. A broker is entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on “routine” matters without instructions from the beneficial owner of those shares. Absent instructions from the beneficial owner of such shares, a broker is not entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on “non-routine” matters. At our Annual Meeting, only the ratification of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022 is considered a routine matter. The proposal for the election of directors and any other proposals presented at the Annual Meeting are non-routine matters. Broker non-votes are counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present, and have no effect on the outcome of the matters voted upon. Accordingly, we encourage you to provide voting instructions to your broker, whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting.

You may log in to the meeting platform beginning at 8:45 a.m. Pacific Time on June 1, 2022. The meeting will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
You will need the 16-digit control number provided in your proxy materials to attend the Annual Meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USER2022 as a "stockholder" which will allow you to vote electronically during the Annual Meeting, ask questions and view a list of registered stockholders as of the Record Date.
Stockholders of record and beneficial owners as of the Record Date may vote their shares electronically during the Annual Meeting.
If you wish to submit a question during the Annual Meeting, log into the virtual meeting platform at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USER2022, type your question into the “Ask a Question” field, and click “Submit.” If your question is properly submitted during the relevant portion of the meeting agenda, we will respond to your question during the live webcast, subject to time constraints. Questions that are substantially similar may be grouped and answered together to avoid repetition. Only questions pertaining to the proposals to be acted on at the Annual meeting will be answered and we reserve the right to exclude questions that are irrelevant to meeting matters, irrelevant to the business of UserTesting, or derogatory or in bad taste; that relate to pending or threatened litigation; that are personal grievances; or that are otherwise inappropriate (as determined by the chair of the Annual Meeting). A webcast replay of the Annual Meeting, including the Q&A session, will be archived on the “Investor Relations” section of our website, which is located at ir.usertesting.com.
If we experience technical difficulties during the meeting (e.g., a temporary or prolonged power outage), we will determine whether the meeting can be promptly reconvened (if the technical difficulty is temporary) or whether the meeting will need to be reconvened on a later day (if the technical difficulty is more prolonged). In any situation, we will promptly notify stockholders of the decision via www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/USER2022. If you encounter technical difficulties accessing our meeting or asking questions during the meeting, a support line will be available on the login page of the virtual meeting website.

Stockholders and members of the public may also attend the virtual meeting by logging in as a "guest," which does not require a control number. Guests cannot vote their shares electronically during the Annual Meeting, cannot ask questions and cannot view a list of registered stockholders as of the Record Date.

5


Submitting your proxy whether by telephone, through the Internet or, if you request or receive a paper proxy card, by mail will not affect your right to vote should you decide to attend the Annual Meeting. If you are not the stockholder of record, please refer to the voting instructions provided by your nominee to direct your nominee on how to vote your shares. Your vote is important. Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote by proxy to ensure that your vote is counted.
All proxies will be voted in accordance with the instructions specified.
If you sign a physical proxy card and return it without instructions as to how your shares should be voted on a particular proposal at the Annual Meeting, your shares will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of our board of directors stated above.
If you do not vote and you hold your shares in street name, and your broker does not have discretionary power to vote your shares, your shares may constitute “broker non-votes” (as described above) and will not be counted in determining the number of shares necessary for approval of the proposals. However, shares that constitute broker non-votes will be counted for the purpose of establishing a quorum for the Annual Meeting.
If you receive more than one proxy card, your shares are registered in more than one name or are registered in different accounts. To make certain all of your shares are voted, please follow the instructions included on each proxy card and vote each proxy card by telephone, through the Internet or by mail. If you requested or received paper proxy materials and you intend to vote by mail, please complete, sign and return each proxy card you received to ensure that all of your shares are voted.
Expenses of Soliciting Proxies
We will pay the expenses of soliciting proxies, including preparation, assembly, printing and mailing of this Proxy Statement, the proxy and any other information furnished to stockholders. Following the original mailing of the soliciting materials, we and our agents, including directors, officers, and other employees, without additional compensation, may solicit proxies by mail, email, telephone, facsimile, by other similar means or in person. Following the original mailing of the soliciting materials, we request brokers, custodians, nominees and other record holders to forward copies of the soliciting materials to persons for whom they hold shares and to request authority for the exercise of proxies. In such cases, we, upon the request of the record holders, will reimburse such holders for their reasonable expenses. If you choose to access the proxy materials or vote through the Internet, you are responsible for any Internet access charges you may incur
Revocability of Proxies
A stockholder of record who has given a proxy may revoke it at any time before it is exercised at the Annual Meeting by:
delivering to our Corporate Secretary by mail a written notice stating that the proxy is revoked;
signing and delivering a proxy bearing a later date;
voting again by telephone or through the Internet; or
attending and voting at the Annual Meeting (although attendance at the Annual Meeting will not, by itself, revoke a proxy).
Please note, however, that if your shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee and you wish to revoke a proxy, you must contact that firm to revoke any prior voting instructions.
Voting Results
Voting results will be tabulated and certified by the inspector of elections appointed for the Annual Meeting. The preliminary voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting. The final results will be tallied by the inspector of elections and filed with the SEC in a current report on Form 8-K within four business days of the Annual Meeting.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS;
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE STANDARDS AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE
We are strongly committed to good corporate governance practices. These practices provide an important framework within which our board of directors and management can pursue our strategic objectives for the benefit of our stockholders.
Corporate Governance Guidelines
Our board of directors has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines that set forth expectations for directors, director independence standards, board committee structure and functions, and other policies for the governance of the company. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines are available on the “Investor Relations” page on our website (www.usertesting.com), by clicking “Governance Documents” in the “Governance” dropdown list. Our nominating and governance committee reviews the Corporate Governance Guidelines periodically, and changes are recommended to our board of directors as warranted.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
We have adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to all the members of our board of directors, officers and employees. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is posted on the “Investor Relations” page on our website (www.usertesting.com), by clicking “Governance Documents” in the “Governance” dropdown list. We intend to satisfy the disclosure requirement under applicable SEC and New York Stock Exchange, or NYSE, disclosure requirements regarding amendments to, or waivers of, a provision of our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics by posting such information on our website at the location specified above.
Our Board of Directors’ Leadership Structure
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that our board of directors shall be free to choose its chairperson in any way that it considers in the best interests of our company, and that the nominating and governance committee periodically considers the leadership structure of our board of directors and makes recommendations to our board of directors as appropriate. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines also provide that, when the positions of chairperson and chief executive officer are held by the same person, the independent directors will designate a “lead independent director.” In cases in which the chairperson and chief executive officer are the same person and a lead independent director has been designated, the chairperson schedules and sets the agenda for meetings of our board of directors in consultation with the lead independent director, and the chairperson chairs such meetings. The responsibilities of the lead independent director include:
calling meetings of the independent directors;
facilitating discussion and open dialogue among independent directors;
serving as a liaison between the chairperson and the independent directors;
disseminating information to the chairperson and management;
being available under appropriate circumstances for communication with stockholders; and
performing such other functions and responsibilities as requested by our board of directors from time to time.
Currently, our board of directors believes that it should maintain flexibility to select the chairperson of our board of directors and adjust our board leadership structure from time to time. Mr. Andrew (Andy) MacMillan is the Chairperson of our board of directors. Mr. MacMillan has served as a member of our board of directors since May 2018 and Chairperson since February 2020. Our board of directors believes that Mr. MacMillan’s historical knowledge, operational expertise, and extensive leadership experience serving as our Chief Executive Officer make him well qualified to serve as Chairperson of our board of directors. Since Mr. MacMillan also serves as our Chief Executive Officer, the independent directors have designated Ms. Shannon Nash as the lead independent director. Ms. Nash has served as a member of our board of directors since February 2021. Our board of directors believes that
7


Ms. Nash’s extensive leadership and business experience with technology companies make her well qualified to serve as lead independent director of our board of directors.
Our Board of Directors’ Role in Risk Oversight
Our board of directors, as a whole, has responsibility for risk oversight, although the committees of our board of directors oversee and review risk areas that are particularly relevant to them. The risk oversight responsibility of our board of directors and its committees is supported by our management reporting processes, which are designed to provide visibility to our board of directors and to our personnel that are responsible for risk assessment and information about the identification, assessment and management of critical risks and management’s risk mitigation strategies. These areas of focus include competitive, economic, operational, financial (accounting, credit, investment, liquidity and tax), legal, regulatory, cybersecurity, privacy, compliance and reputational risks, as well as the risks posed or aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our board of directors reviews strategic and operational risk in the context of discussions, question and answer sessions, and reports from the management team at each regular board of directors meeting, receives updates on all significant committee activities at each regular board of directors meeting, and evaluates the risks inherent in significant transactions. Our audit committee assists our board of directors in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to risk management.
Each committee of our board of directors meets with key management personnel and representatives of outside advisors to oversee risks associated with their respective principal areas of focus. Our audit committee reviews our major financial, enterprise, legal and regulatory risk exposures, our internal control over financial reporting, our disclosure controls and procedures, legal and regulatory compliance, and, among other things, discusses with management and our independent registered public accounting firm guidelines and policies with respect to risk assessment and risk management. Our audit committee also reviews matters relating to cybersecurity and data privacy and security and reports to our board of directors regarding such matters. Our compensation committee evaluates our major compensation-related risk exposures and the steps management has taken to monitor or mitigate such exposures. Our nominating and governance committee assesses risks relating to our corporate governance practices, reviews and assesses our performance, risks, controls and procedures relating to corporate responsibility and sustainability, including environmental, social and governance, or ESG, functions, reviews the independence of our board of directors and reviews and discusses the narrative disclosure regarding our board of directors’ leadership structure and role in risk oversight. We believe this division of responsibilities is an effective approach for addressing the risks we face and that our board leadership structure supports this approach.

Management Succession Planning
 
Our board of directors recognizes that one of its most important duties is its oversight of succession planning for our senior management positions, including our Chief Executive Officer. Our board of directors has delegated primary oversight responsibility for succession planning for our senior management positions, including our Chief Executive Officer, to the nominating and governance committee. Our board of directors continues to regularly evaluate its succession planning to ensure that we are well-positioned to continue to execute on our corporate strategy.

Oversight of Corporate Strategy

Our board of directors actively oversees management’s establishment and execution of corporate strategy, including major business and organizational initiatives, annual budget and long-term strategic plans, capital allocation priorities, potential corporate development opportunities, and risk management. At its regularly scheduled meetings and throughout the year, our board of directors receives information and formal updates from our management and actively engages with the senior leadership team with respect to our corporate strategy. Our board of directors’ diverse skill set and experience enhances our board of directors’ ability to support management in the execution and evaluation of our corporate strategy. The independent members of our board of directors also hold regularly scheduled executive sessions at which strategy is discussed.
8


Cybersecurity Risk Oversight
Securing the information of our customers, contributors, employees, partners, and other third parties is important to us. We have adopted physical, technological, and administrative controls on data security, and have a defined procedure for data incident detection, containment, response, and remediation. While everyone at our company plays a part in managing these risks, oversight responsibility is shared by our board of directors, our audit committee, and management.
Our management team provides regular cybersecurity updates in the form of written reports and presentations to our audit committee. Our audit committee also reviews metrics about cyber threat response preparedness, program maturity milestones, risk mitigation status, and the current and emerging threat landscape. We also maintain information security risk insurance coverage.
Independence of Directors
The listing rules of the NYSE require that a majority of the members of a listed company’s board of directors be independent. In addition, the listing rules generally require that each member of a listed company’s audit, compensation, and nominating and governance committees be independent. Under the rules of the NYSE, a director will only qualify as an “independent director” if, in the opinion of that company’s board of directors, that person does not have a material relationship with the company, either directly or as an officer, partner or stockholder of the company, that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
In addition, audit committee members must also satisfy the independence criteria set forth in Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. In order to be considered independent for purposes of Rule 10A-3, a member of an audit committee of a listed company may not, other than in his or her capacity as a member of the audit committee, the board of directors, or any other committee of the board of directors: accept, directly or indirectly, any consulting, advisory, or other compensatory fee from the listed company or any of its subsidiaries; or be an affiliated person of the listed company or any of its subsidiaries.
Our board of directors conducts an annual review of the independence of our directors. In its most recent review, our board of directors determined that Messrs. Braccia and Wong and Mses. Mamut, Nash, and Russo are “independent directors” as defined under the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC and the listing requirements and rules of the NYSE. Our board of directors has also determined that all members of our audit committee, compensation committee, and nominating and governance committee are independent as defined under the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC and the listing requirements and rules of the NYSE.
Board of Directors and Committee Self-Evaluations
Throughout the year, our board of directors discusses corporate governance practices with management and third-party advisors to ensure that the board of directors and its committees follow practices that are optimal for the company and its stockholders. We plan to conduct the first evaluation of our board of directors and its committees as a public company in the fourth quarter of 2022. As part of this process, each member of our board of directors individually provides feedback to outside counsel with that director’s assessment of the performance of the board of directors and its committees, their own performance, and the performance of fellow members of the board of directors. Our lead independent director shares feedback received with individual members of the board of directors, with the nominating and governance committee, and with the full board of directors. Our board of directors then reviews and discusses the feedback.
Committees of Our Board of Directors
Our board of directors has established an audit committee, a compensation committee, and a nominating and governance committee. The composition and responsibilities of each committee are described below. Each of these committees has a written charter approved by our board of directors. Copies of the charters for each committee are
9


available on the “Investor Relations” page on our website (www.usertesting.com), by clicking “Governance Documents” in the “Governance” dropdown list.
Audit Committee
Our audit committee is composed of Mses. Russo and Nash and Mr. Wong. Ms. Russo is the chair of our audit committee. The members of our audit committee meet the independence requirements under the current listing standards of NYSE and SEC rules and regulations. Each member of our audit committee meets the financial literacy standards of the NYSE. In addition, our board of directors has determined that each of Mses. Nash and Russo is an “audit committee financial expert” as that term is defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act. This designation does not, however, impose on them any supplemental duties, obligations, or liabilities beyond those that are generally applicable to the other members of our audit committee and board of directors. Our audit committee’s principal functions are to assist our board of directors in its oversight of:
selecting a firm to serve as our independent registered public accounting firm to audit our financial statements and internal control over financial reporting;
ensuring the independence of the independent registered public accounting firm;
discussing the scope and results of the audit with the independent registered public accounting firm, and reviewing, with management and that firm, our interim and year-end operating results;

Derivatives Trading, Hedging, and Pledging Policies
We have adopted a policy prohibiting our employees, including our executive officers, and members of our board of directors, among others, from speculating in our equity securities, including the use of short sales, “sales against the box” or any equivalent transaction involving our equity securities. In addition, they may not engage in any other hedging transactions, such as zero cost collars, forward sale contracts, and other similar or related arrangements, with respect to the securities that they hold. We also have adopted a policy prohibiting the pledging of our common stock by our employees, including our executive officers, and members of our board of directors, unless approved by our General Counsel.
Corporate Responsibility: Environmental, Social, and Governance

Our board of directors, management and employees consciously strive to positively impact our global communities and the environment. In 2021, our board of directors amended the charter of our nominating and governance committee to include oversight of ESG practices and initiatives within the committee’s scope of responsibility. In 2022, we anticipate that our management team and advisors will provide reports on these matters to the nominating and governance committee.
Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Belonging
At UserTesting we launched our Building Empathy Through Storytelling series, a series designed to promote authenticity and boost empathy by providing space for our employees to share their unique lived experiences, helping to amplify the various perspectives of our diverse communities. In addition, we expanded our Employee Resource Group (ERG) program to include regional groups, to more closely connect members of our globally expanding workforce and contribute to a more global ERG perspective.

Philanthropy

We are excited about UT Cares, our philanthropic program that strives to make a positive impact on our local and global communities by encouraging charitable giving, volunteering by our passionate employees and adding our voice to support education and social equity. In 2021, we partnered with various local non-profits in the California Bay Area, Atlanta, Georgia, and Scotland, where our major hubs are located. We also provided our services at no cost to 25 non-profit organizations through our One World Program. In the first quarter of 2021, our employees raised funds to provide over 200,000 meals to people in need in various communities where our employees live and work. In the second quarter of 2021, we walked over 2,500 miles to raise money to help combat COVID outbreaks in India. In the third quarter of 2021, we focused on our employee base with activities during kindness week. Finally, in the fourth quarter of 2021, we partnered with Toys for Tots and Unicef for holiday giving.

NOMINATIONS PROCESS AND DIRECTOR QUALIFICATIONS
Nomination to the Board of Directors
Candidates for nomination to our board of directors are selected by our board of directors based on the recommendation of the nominating and governance committee in accordance with the committee’s charter, our restated certificate of incorporation and restated bylaws, our Corporate Governance Guidelines and the criteria approved by our board of directors regarding director candidate qualifications. In recommending candidates for nomination, the nominating and governance committee considers candidates recommended by directors, officers, employees, stockholders and others, using the same criteria to evaluate all candidates. Evaluations of candidates generally involve a review of background materials, internal discussions and interviews with selected candidates as appropriate and, in addition, the committee may engage consultants or third-party search firms to assist in identifying and evaluating potential nominees.
Stockholders wishing to recommend candidates for consideration by our nominating and governance committee should submit their recommendations to the attention of the Corporate Secretary at the address of our principal executive offices. Information regarding the process for submitting stockholder nominations for candidates for membership on our board of directors is set forth below under “Stockholder Proposals to Be Presented at the Next Annual Meeting.”
Director Qualifications
With the goal of developing a diverse, experienced and highly qualified board of directors, the nominating and governance committee is responsible for developing and recommending to our board of directors the desired qualifications, expertise and characteristics of members of our board of directors, including any specific minimum qualifications that the committee believes must be met by a committee-recommended nominee for membership on our board of directors and any specific qualities or skills that the committee believes are necessary for one or more of the members of our board of directors to possess. Our nominating and governance committee annually reviews the composition and performance of our board of directors and the committees of the board of directors.
Because the identification, evaluation and selection of qualified directors is a complex and subjective process that requires consideration of many intangible factors, and will be significantly influenced by the particular needs of our board of directors from time to time, our board of directors has not adopted a specific set of minimum qualifications, qualities or skills that are necessary for a nominee to possess, other than those that are necessary to meet U.S. legal, regulatory and NYSE listing requirements and the provisions of our restated certificate of incorporation, restated bylaws, Corporate Governance Guidelines, and charters of the committees of our board of directors. In addition, neither our board of directors nor our nominating and governance committee has a formal policy with regard to the consideration of diversity in identifying nominees. When considering nominees, the nominating and governance committee may take into consideration many factors including, among other things, a candidate’s independence, integrity, diversity, skills, financial and other expertise, breadth of experience, knowledge about our business or industry and ability to devote adequate time and effort to responsibilities of our board of directors in the context of its existing composition. Through the nomination process, the nominating and governance committee seeks to promote membership on the board of directors that reflects a diversity of business experience, expertise, viewpoints, personal backgrounds and other characteristics that are expected to contribute to our board of directors’ overall effectiveness. The brief biographical description of each director set forth in Proposal No. 1 below includes the primary individual experience, qualifications, attributes and skills of each of our directors that led to the conclusion that each director should serve as a member of our board of directors at this time.

PROPOSAL NO. 1
ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
Our board of directors currently consists of seven directors and is divided into three classes. Each class serves for three years, with the terms of office of the respective classes expiring in successive years. Directors in Class I will stand for election at the Annual Meeting. The terms of office of directors in Class II and Class III do not expire until the annual meetings of stockholders held in 2023 and 2024, respectively. At the recommendation of our nominating and governance committee, our board of directors proposes that each of the three Class I nominees named below, each of whom is currently serving as a director in Class I, be elected as a Class I director for a three-year term expiring at the 2025 annual meeting of stockholders and until such director’s successor is elected and qualified or until such director’s earlier death, resignation, disqualification, or removal.
Shares represented by proxies will be voted “FOR” the election of each of the three nominees named below, unless the proxy is marked to withhold authority to so vote. If any nominee for any reason is unable to serve or for good cause will not serve, the proxies may be voted for such substitute nominee as the proxy holder might determine. Each nominee has consented to being named in this Proxy Statement and to serve if elected. Proxies may not be voted for more than three directors. Stockholders may not cumulate votes for the election of directors.

PROPOSAL NO. 2
RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
Our audit committee has selected Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022 and recommends that stockholders vote for ratification of such selection. The ratification of the selection of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022 requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of the shares present or represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting that are voted “FOR” or “AGAINST” the matter. In the event that Ernst & Young LLP is not ratified by our stockholders, the audit committee will review its future selection of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm. Further, the audit committee may select a different independent registered public accounting firm at any time if, in the committee’s sole discretion, the committee determines that such a change would be in the best interests of the company and our stockholders.
Ernst & Young LLP audited our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021. Representatives of Ernst & Young LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting and they will be given an opportunity to make a statement at the Annual Meeting if they desire to do so, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.
Change of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On April 22, 2020, we replaced Armanino LLP as our independent auditors and retained Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm. The decision to change our independent auditors was approved by our audit committee.
Armanino LLP did not issue a report on our audited financial statements for either of the years ended December 31, 2019 or December 31, 2020. We had no disagreements with Armanino LLP on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to its satisfaction, would have caused Armanino LLP to make reference in connection with its opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement during the two fiscal years prior to its replacement and the subsequent interim period ended April 22, 2020. During the two most recent fiscal years preceding our replacement of Armanino LLP, and the subsequent interim period ended April 22, 2020, there were no “reportable events” as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
During the two years ended December 31, 2019 and through the subsequent interim period ended April 22, 2020, neither we, nor anyone acting on our behalf, consulted with Ernst & Young LLP on matters that involved the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, or any other matter that was the subject of a disagreement as that term is used in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K or a reportable event as that term is used in Item 304(a)(1)(v) and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K.
Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm Fees and Services
We regularly review the services and fees from our independent registered public accounting firm. These services and fees are also reviewed with our audit committee annually. In accordance with standard policy, Ernst & Young LLP periodically rotates the individuals who are responsible for our audit.
In addition to performing the audit of our consolidated financial statements, Ernst & Young LLP provided various other services during the years ended December 31, 2021. Our audit committee has determined that Ernst & Young LLP’s provision of these services, which are described below, does not impair Ernst & Young LLP’s independence from us. During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2021, fees for services provided by Ernst & Young LLP were as follows:

In November 2021, we entered into change in control and severance agreements, or CIC Agreements, with each of our executive officers, including our Named Executive Officers, that provide for the following payments and benefits upon certain terminations of employment or in connection with a change of control.
Pursuant to the CIC Agreements, in the event that the Named Executive Officer is terminated without “cause” or resigns for “good reason” within three months before or 12 months following a “change of control” of our company (as such terms are defined in the CIC Agreements), he or she will be entitled to: (i) an amount equal to twelve months of his or her base salary at the rate in effect immediately prior to such termination, payable in a cash lump-sum, (ii) an additional cash payment in an amount equal to a pro-rated portion of his or her annual target bonus (provided, however, that our Chief Executive Officer will receive a cash payment in an amount equal to 100% of his or her annual target bonus), and (iii) to the extent the named executive officer timely elects to receive continued coverage under our group-healthcare plans, we will provide him or her a lump sum cash payment in an amount equal to the full amount of his or her COBRA premiums for the same period as he or she is entitled to severance plus an additional gross-up payment to account for the fact that such COBRA premium amounts are paid on an after-tax basis. In addition, each of the Named Executive Officer’s outstanding equity awards will become vested and exercisable, as applicable, with respect to 50% of the underlying shares (100% in the case of our Chief Executive Officer), with any performance criteria deemed achieved at the actual performance level or, if the actual performance level has not been determined, at 100% achievement of target (this acceleration supplements, but does not supersede prior vesting acceleration arrangements, as described below). All such severance payments and benefits are subject to each named executive officer’s execution of a general release of claims against us.
Additionally, in the event that the Named Executive Officer is terminated without “cause” or resigns for “good reason” other than three months before or 12 months following a “change of control” of our company (as such terms are defined in the CIC Agreements), he or she will be entitled to: (i) an amount equal to six months (twelve months in the case of our Chief Executive Officer) of his or her base salary at the rate in effect immediately prior to such termination, payable in a cash lump-sum, and (ii) to the extent the named executive officer timely elects to receive continued coverage under our group-healthcare plans, we will provide him or her a lump sum cash payment in an amount equal to the full amount of his or her COBRA premiums for the same period as he or she is entitled to severance plus an additional gross-up payment to account for the fact that such COBRA premium amounts are paid on an after-tax basis. All such severance payments and benefits are subject to each Named Executive Officer’s execution of a general release of claims against us.
28


Additionally, in the event that our Named Executive Officers are terminated due to death or “disability” (as such term is defined in the CIC Agreements), each of our Named Executive Officers will be entitled to (i) an amount equal to six months (twelve months in the case of our Chief Executive Officer) of his or her base salary at the rate in effect immediately prior to such termination, payable in a cash lump-sum and (ii) we will provide him or her a lump sum cash payment in an amount equal to the full amount of his or her COBRA premiums for the same period as he or she is entitled to severance. All such severance payments and benefits are subject to each Named Executive Officer’s (or his/her estate’s, if applicable) execution of a general release of claims against us.

In addition, each of Messrs. MacMillan, Satterwhite and Pexton holds outstanding options under our 2013 Plan that entitled the holder to certain acceleration of those awards in the event of a “change in control” (as defined in the 2013 Plan) .

On July 11, 2018, Mr. MacMillan was granted an option under the 2013 Plan to purchase 5,099,523 shares of our common stock and on June 4, 2020, Mr. MacMillan was granted an option under the 2013 Plan to purchase 2,500,000 shares of our common stock. In the event that Mr. MacMillan remains in service to us through a “change in control” (as defined in the 2013 Plan), then 100% of the shares subject to each of the options described above shall vest in full (subject to Mr. MacMillan’s execution of a release of claims in favor of us); further, in the event that Mr. MacMillan is subject to a termination without “cause” or a resignation for “good reason” (each as defined in the applicable stock option agreement governing Mr. MacMillan’s option grant), then the vesting of each of the options described above shall accelerate so as to provide Mr. MacMillan with an additional 3 months of vesting credit.
On July 11, 2018, Mr. Satterwhite was granted an option under the 2013 Plan to purchase 1,019,905 shares of our common stock and on June 4, 2020, Mr. Satterwhite was granted an option under the 2013 Plan to purchase 500,000 shares of our common stock. In the event that Mr. Satterwhite is subject to a termination without “cause” or a resignation for “good reason” (each as defined in the stock applicable option agreement governing Mr. Satterwhite’s option grant) within the period beginning two months prior to the consummation of a “change in control” (as defined in the 2013 Plan) and ending on the date that is 12 months after such change in control, then 100% of the shares subject to each of the options described above shall vest in full (subject to Mr. Satterwhite’s execution of a release of claims in favor of us); further, in the event that Mr. Satterwhite is otherwise subject to a termination without “cause” or a resignation for “good reason,” then the vesting of each of the options described above shall accelerate so as to provide Mr. Satterwhite with an additional 3 months of vesting credit.
On May 11, 2021, Mr. Pexton was granted an option under the 2013 Plan to purchase 1,615,582 shares of our common stock. In the event that Mr. Pexton is subject to a termination without “cause” or a resignation for “good reason” (each as defined in the stock applicable option agreement governing Mr. Pexton’s option grant) within the period beginning two months prior to the consummation of a “change in control” (as defined in the 2013 Plan) and ending on the date that is 12 months after such change in control, then 100% of the shares subject to each of the options described above shall vest in full (subject to Mr. Pexton’s execution of a release of claims in favor of us); further, in the event that Mr. Pexton is otherwise subject to a termination without “cause” or a resignation for “good reason,” then the vesting of each of the options described above shall accelerate so as to provide Mr. Pexton with an additional 3 months of vesting credit.
401(k) Plan
We also sponsor a broad-based 401(k) plan intended to provide eligible U.S. employees with an opportunity to defer eligible compensation up to certain annual limits. As a tax-qualified retirement plan, contributions (if any) made by us are deductible by us when made, and contributions and earnings on those amounts are generally not taxable to the employees until withdrawn or distributed from the 401(k) plan. Our Named Executive Officers are eligible to participate in our employee benefit plans, including our 401(k) plan, on the same basis as our other employees.

Limitations on Liability and Indemnification Matters
Our restated certificate of incorporation contains provisions that limit the liability of our directors for monetary damages to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, or DGCL. Consequently, our directors will not be personally liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for any breach of fiduciary duties as directors, except liability for:
any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders;
any act or omission not in good faith or that involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;
unlawful payments of dividends or unlawful stock repurchases or redemptions as provided in Section 174 of the DGCL; or
any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
Our restated certificate of incorporation and our restated bylaws require us to indemnify our directors and officers to the maximum extent not prohibited by the DGCL and allow us to indemnify other employees and agents as set forth in the DGCL. Subject to certain limitations, our restated bylaws also require us to advance expenses incurred by our directors and officers for the defense of any action for which indemnification is required or permitted, subject to very limited exceptions.
We have entered, and intend to continue to enter, into separate indemnification agreements with our directors, officers and certain of our other employees. These agreements, among other things, require us to indemnify our directors, officers, and key employees for certain expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, and settlement amounts actually and reasonably incurred by such director, officer or key employee in any action or proceeding arising out of their service to us or any of our subsidiaries or any other company or enterprise to which the person provides services at our request. Subject to certain limitations, our indemnification agreements also require us to advance expenses incurred by our directors, officers, and key employees for the defense of any action for which indemnification is required or permitted.
We believe that these provisions in our restated certificate of incorporation, restated bylaws and indemnification agreements are necessary to attract and retain qualified persons such as directors, officers, and key employees. We also maintain directors’ and officers’ liability insurance.
The limitation of liability and indemnification provisions in our restated certificate of incorporation and restated bylaws or in these indemnification agreements may discourage stockholders from bringing a lawsuit against our directors and officers for breaches of their fiduciary duties. They may also reduce the likelihood of derivative litigation against our directors and officers, even though an action, if successful, might benefit us and other stockholders. Further, a stockholder’s investment may be adversely affected to the extent that we pay the costs of settlement and damage awards against directors and officers as required by these indemnification provisions.
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, executive officers or persons controlling us, we have been informed that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.
Rule 10b5-1 Sales Plans
Certain of our directors and executive officers have adopted written plans, known as Rule 10b5-1 plans, in which they have contracted with a broker to buy or sell shares of our common stock on a periodic basis. Under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, a broker executes trades pursuant to parameters established by the director or executive officer when entering into the plan, without further direction from them. The director or executive officer may amend or terminate the plan in specified circumstances.

Any shares of common stock that are subject to outstanding awards under the 2013 Plan that are issuable upon the exercise of stock options that expire or become unexercisable for any reason without having been exercised in full will generally be available for future grant and issuance as shares of common stock under our 2021 Plan. In addition, the number of shares reserved for issuance under our 2021 Plan increased automatically by 7,112,028 shares on January 1, 2022 and will increase automatically on the first day of January of each of 2022 through 2030 by the number of shares equal to 5% of the total issued and outstanding shares of our common stock as of the immediately preceding December 31 or a lower number approved by our board of directors. The number of shares reserved for issuance under our 2021 ESPP increased automatically by 1,422,405 shares on January 1, 2022 and will increase automatically on the first day of January of each year during the term of the 2021 ESPP by the number of shares equal to 1% of the total outstanding shares of our common stock as of the immediately preceding December 31 or a lower number approved by our board of directors. The increases are not reflected in the table above.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

In addition to the executive officer and director compensation arrangements discussed above under “Executive Compensation” and “Proposal No. 1—Election of Directors—Director Compensation,” respectively, since January 1, 2021, the following are the only transactions or series of similar transactions to which we were or will be a party in which the amount involved exceeds $120,000 and in which any director, nominee for director, executive officer, beneficial holder of more than 5% of our capital stock or any member of their immediate family or any entity affiliated with any of the foregoing persons had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.
Employment Arrangements with Immediate Family Members of Our Chief Revenue Officer
Brad Satterwhite, the son of David Satterwhite, our Chief Revenue Officer, has served as our Senior Director, Business Operations, reporting to our Chief Operating Officer, since January 2021, and previously served as our Director, Business Operations, reporting to our Chief Operating Officer, from June 2020 to January 2021. For 2021, Mr. Satterwhite’s total cash compensation was $235,213. Additionally, in March 2021, Mr. Satterwhite was granted an option to purchase 10,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.39 per share. Mr. Satterwhite’s compensation was based on reference to external market practice of similar positions or internal pay equity when compared to the compensation paid to employees in similar positions who were not related to our Chief Revenue Officer.
Eric Wieber, the son-in-law of David Satterwhite, our Chief Revenue Officer, has served as our Senior Quality Engineer, reporting to our Chief Technology Officer organization, since May 2021, and previously served as our Senior Test Engineer, reporting to our Chief Technology Officer organization, from November 2018 to May 2021. For 2021, Mr. Wieber’s total cash compensation was $124,656. Mr. Wieber’s compensation was based on reference to external market practice of similar positions or internal pay equity when compared to the compensation paid to employees in similar positions who were not related to our Chief Revenue Officer.
Lease Arrangements

We previously had two lease agreements for certain office spaces in San Francisco with Metrovation, LLC, which entity owns the buildings from which we leased this space. Our director, Darrell Benatar, is a member of Metrovation, LLC. The lease terms were considered to be consistent with market rates. We paid $346,174 of rent under these lease agreements for the first quarter of 2021. We terminated these lease agreements in April 2021 and have no further commitments under the agreements.
Indemnification Agreements
We have entered into indemnification agreements with each of our executive officers and directors, including those affiliated with certain of our 5% stockholders. The indemnification agreements and our restated bylaws will require us to indemnify our directors to the fullest extent not prohibited by DGCL. Subject to very limited exceptions, our restated bylaws will also require us to advance expenses incurred by our directors and officers.
Policies and Procedures for Related-Person Transactions
Our audit committee has the primary responsibility for reviewing and approving or disapproving “related party transactions,” which are transactions between us and related persons in which the aggregate amount involved exceeds or may be expected to exceed $120,000 and in which a related person has or will have a direct or indirect material interest. Our policy regarding transactions between us and related persons will provide that a related person is defined as a director, executive officer, nominee for director or greater than 5% beneficial owner of our securities, in each case since the beginning of the most recently completed year, and any of their immediate family members. Our audit committee charter provides that our audit committee shall review and approve or disapprove any related party transactions.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Stockholder Proposals to be Presented at the Next Annual Meeting
Our restated bylaws provide that, for stockholder nominations to our board of directors or other proposals to be considered at an annual meeting, the stockholder must give timely notice thereof in writing to the attention of the Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices, the address of which is UserTesting, Inc., 144 Townsend Street, San Francisco, California 94107.
To be timely for our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, a stockholder’s notice must be delivered to or mailed and received by our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices not earlier than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 1, 2023 and not later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on March 3, 2023. A stockholder’s notice to the Corporate Secretary must set forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting the information required by our restated bylaws.
Stockholder proposals submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act and intended to be presented at our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders must be received by us not later than December 21, 2022 in order to be considered for inclusion in our proxy materials for that meeting. Proposals should be sent to our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices, together with proof of ownership of our common stock in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act. We strongly encourage any stockholder interested in submitting a proposal to contact our General Counsel and Corporate Secretary in advance of this deadline to discuss the proposal.
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our directors, executive officers and any persons who own more than 10% of our common stock, to file initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership with the SEC. Such persons are required by SEC regulation to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms that they file. Based solely on our review of the copies of such forms furnished to us and written representations from our directors and executive officers, we believe that all Section 16(a) filing requirements were timely met in the year ended December 31, 2021, except due to administrative error, one late Form 4 filing made on behalf of Andy MacMillan, dated January 13, 2022, to report a stock option exercise on December 27, 2021.

We will mail, without charge, upon written request, a copy of our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, including the financial statements and list of exhibits, and any exhibit specifically requested. Requests should be sent to:
UserTesting, Inc.
144 Townsend Street
San Francisco, California 94107
Attn: Investor Relations
The annual report is also available on the “Investor Relations” page on our website (www.usertesting.com), by clicking “SEC Filings” in the “Financial Info” dropdown list, or by following the instructions in the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials.

“Householding”-Stockholders Sharing the Same Last Name and Address
The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (such as brokers) to implement a delivery procedure called “householding.” Under this procedure, multiple stockholders who reside at the same address may receive a single copy of our annual report and other proxy materials, including the Notice of Internet Availability, unless the affected stockholder has provided contrary instructions. This procedure reduces printing costs and postage fees, and helps in conserving natural resources.
This year, a number of brokers with account holders who are our stockholders will be “householding” our annual report and other proxy materials, including the Notice of Internet Availability. A single Notice of Internet Availability and, if applicable, a single set of our annual report and other proxy materials will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that it will be “householding” communications to your address, “householding” will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. Stockholders may revoke their consent at any time by contacting Broadridge by calling 1-866-540-7095 or writing to Broadridge, Householding Department, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York, 11717.
Upon written or oral request, we will promptly deliver a separate copy of the Notice of Internet Availability and, if applicable, our annual report and other proxy materials to any stockholder at a shared address to which a single copy of any of those documents was delivered. To receive a separate copy of the Notice of Internet Availability and, if applicable, annual report and other proxy materials, you may contact our Investor Relations department at 144 Townsend Street, San Francisco, California 94107, Attn: Investor Relations, telephone number (888) 877-1882.
Any stockholders who share the same address and receive multiple copies of our Notice of Internet Availability or annual report and other proxy materials who wish to receive only one copy in the future can contact their bank, broker or other holder of record to request information about householding or our Investor Relations department at the address or telephone number listed above.

Our board of directors does not presently intend to bring any other business before the Annual Meeting and, so far as is known to our board of directors, no matters are to be brought before the Annual Meeting except as specified in the Notice of Annual Meeting of Stockholders. As to any business that may arise and properly come before the Annual Meeting, however, it is intended that proxies, in the form enclosed, will be voted in respect thereof in accordance with the judgment of the persons voting such proxies.
