Software Engineer - API Platform

| Seattle

Company Description

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.

The Challenge

The Developer Platform team is making it possible for anyone to build and sell amazing applications on top of the Qualtrics platform. We architect the APIs and own the high scale internet-facing entry point to all Qualtrics online services. We provide the tooling that enables all of Qualtrics to own and maintain their own high-quality, self-consistent, standards-based APIs. We’re at the very beginning of our journey - we invite you to join us!

As a software engineer at Qualtrics, you should love building simple solutions to tackle hard customer problems. Crafting systems in an agile environment to withstand hyper growth and owning quality from end to end is a rewarding challenge and one of the reasons Qualtrics is such an exciting place to work!

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.
