Job Description

Qualtrics, the leader in customer experience and creator of the Experience Management (XM) category, is changing the way organizations manage and improve the four core experiences of business––customer, employee, product, and brand. Over 12,000 organizations around the world are using Qualtrics to listen, understand, and take action on experience data (X-data™)––the beliefs, emotions, and intentions that tell you why things are happening, and what to do about it.

The Qualtrics XM Platform™ is a system of action that helps businesses attract customers who stay longer and buy more, engage employees who build a positive culture, develop breakthrough products people love, and build a brand people are passionate about. Join us as we help change the way people experience the world! Advance your career at a company that is dedicated to your ideas and growth, fills you with purpose, and provides a fun, inclusive work environment.

The Team 

The Data Platform supports all of the Qualtrics experience management products. Our services ingest, store, process, and perform analytics on experience data, all at scale. We design systems for high availability, high throughput, data consistency and security. The platform we have built enables all of the customer, employee, brand and product experience teams to rapidly develop data-driven workflows and tools to help our customers manage their businesses.

Expectations for Success

We aspire to be the best engineering organization within Qualtrics. Consequently, we focus on extending the platform by facilitating the specialization and personal growth of our engineers. Our engineers, at every level, participate in design and architecture, requirements gathering, full stack development and delivery, operations, quality, and benchmarking and optimization. Qualtrics wants to dominate the experience management space so we welcome individuals who are interested in envisioning the future and anticipating customer needs that don’t exist yet. We expect our senior contributors to identify hidden problems, to exhibit a healthy intellectual and engineering curiosity, and to continuously question if there isn’t a better way. Time spent on the data platform occurs in dog years. You will grow rapidly.

We expect all of our contributors to have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related field, and to be capable of demonstrating expertise in algorithmic execution, data structures and data modeling, as well as the ability to estimate and deliver on coding objectives. We are looking for exceptional individuals at all experience levels, from junior to principal engineers.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with distributed systems and data processing technologies.
  • Strong mathematical and/or computational background.
  • Knowledge of open source/industry standard data processing, storage, and serving technologies.
  • Excellent troubleshooting skills
  • 5-7 years of meaningful engineering experience
