Software Engineer - iQ Data Platform
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 iQ Data Platform is designed to enable the combination of Experience and Operational (X+O) data at scale. This platform allows for mining, clustering, exploration, and deeper algorithmic analysis on top of Qualtrics data by providing a Data Lake for storage and a distributed compute system to load and transform data.
Where data warehouses and relational stores are inflexible, expensive, and difficult to maintain, a Data Lake allows us to store, secure, and access data in an agile way enabling prototype to production development. This system in tandem with our compute and analysis systems form a foundation for an intelligent XM Platform.
