About Qualtrics

Qualtrics is the technology platform that organizations use to collect, manage, and act on experience data, also called X-data™. The Qualtrics XM Platform™ is a system of action, used by teams, departments, and entire organizations to manage the four core experiences of business—customer, product, employee and brand—on one platform. Over 9,000 enterprises worldwide, including more than 75 percent of the Fortune 100 and 99 of the top 100 U.S. business schools, rely on Qualtrics to consistently build products that people love, create more loyal customers, develop a phenomenal employee culture, and build iconic brands. Qualtrics was recently acquired by SAP, and together we will accelerate XM and power the experience economy. Join us on this adventure that can open many doors! If you’re searching for a company that’s dedicated to your ideas and growth, recognizes your unique contribution, fills you with purpose, and provides a fun, flexible and inclusive work environment - apply now!

The Developer Tooling team is a cornerstone of the Qualtrics engineering organization. We are responsible for the systems that drive the entire software development lifecycle.

The Challenge

As the leader of the Developer Tooling organization, your customers will be the developers inside Qualtrics. They are some of the most demanding and appreciative customers, driven to innovate on behalf of our customers. Success means delivering real value during a time of explosive growth.

You will be responsible for developing and growing a team of engineers. You will have the autonomy to define a roadmap that meets the short and long-term needs of your customers.

We are seeking someone who is comfortable with high degrees of ambiguity, who is proficient at operating mission-critical services at scale, mentoring engineers, and acting as a technical leader to set the direction and vision for the Qualtrics developer platform.

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 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.
