About Qualtrics

At Qualtrics, our mission is to close experience gaps—the costly differences between what customers and employees expect, and what they’re receiving.

9,000+ organizations worldwide and more than 80% of the Fortune 100 rely on the Qualtrics Experience Management Platform™ to collect, analyze, and act on feedback—more feedback than they ever thought possible. With Qualtrics XM, organizations can manage the four core experiences of business—customer, employee, product, and brand experience. Organizations can be at every meaningful touchpoint, for every experience, and predict what will resonate most with customers and employees.

Have you ever dreamt of starting the UX Research discipline at a company and being able to deeply influence the way product are being planned, designed and developed? Have you ever dreamt of building the next generation of user and market research tools that you use yourself to get user data?

Qualtrics is looking for a Senior UX Researcher to come start, lead and grow the UX Research discipline at the company. We are looking for a super collaborative, easygoing self-starter. You have a long track record of leading strategic research with significant business outcome. You are just as comfortable planning and conducting complex qualitative studies as you are defining and reporting on a large amount of instrumentation data. You can outline three different ways to get the necessary data to answer the usability question after a one-minute interview with a partner. People love to work with you and learn from you.

Desired Experience

  • At least 7 years of industry experience conducting effective user research by applying a broad range of methodologies including in-person and remote usability testing, site visits, paper prototype testing, concept testing, survey design, diary studies, and contextual inquiries.
  • Master's degree in one of these disciplines: Human-Centered Design, Human Factors, Cognitive Psychology, or similar. A PhD is considered a plus.
  • Exceptional behavioral data-collection and analysis skills, e.g., crafting, conducting, and analyzing all kinds of user data
  • A love for diving into complex user research problems
  • Extensive end-to-end experience with all aspects of usability research (study design, recruiting, moderation, analysis, reporting)

What are Qualtrics Perks + Benefits

Qualtrics Benefits Overview

TOTAL REWARDS
The term “benefits” doesn’t really do our employee rewards program justice. We provide free medical, dental, and vision insurance, 20+ days of annual leave, generous retirement fund contributions, company equity, quarterly bonuses, and tons of career mobility.

WORK HARD/PLAY HARD
For every bit of hard work we put in, we have twice the fun. Whether that means taking a break in a massage chair or hitting the slopes after work, Qualtrics makes sure that employees take time to recharge and live it up.

UPWARD MOBILITY
Because we’re a hyper-growth company, getting promoted and taking on more opportunity is always an option. We hire individuals who have what it takes to quickly step into the next role and take on opportunities beyond their core job description.

OFFICE PERKS
We believe in a workspace that allows you to take a breather and pepper fun throughout your day. Grab a beer in the Dublin office pub, enjoy Seattle’s rooftop patio overlooking the Puget Sound, or raid one of the many kitchens around Provo’s office.

HIGH BAR
We’re looking for A-players, not A-holes. We don’t hire cutthroat individuals who only care about themselves. We’re looking for top performers with a wide array of professional and personal experience. Our employees are driven, intelligent, diverse and interesting people who work well in teams and know how to have fun.

GLOBAL
Qualtrics employees are plugged into a network of experienced professionals around the globe. With weekly company-wide video meetings and our own internal social network, employees get global experience and stay up-to-date on what’s happening across the organization.
