Why 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 10,000 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!

The Challenge

As a Principal Operations Program Manager in the Engineering organization, you will define and drive cross-Engineering and cross-company processes and operating models to help us deliver software in the most effective way possible. You’ll regularly interact with teams and leaders across Qualtrics, including C-level executives, to understand their needs and build the right interfaces with Engineering. You will create reporting mechanisms, streamline internal processes, and drive operational efficiencies. You’ll design ways to help our Engineering team scale, provide visibility to the leaders and drive clarity to the rest of the organization. And you'll constantly be looking for new challenges that the organization faces and solving them through process or tooling.

Expectations for Success

This highly visible role will interface frequently with leaders and individual contributors across Qualtrics. The best candidate will have the ability to communicate effectively and establish credibility with technical and non-technical partners including executive staff. This person will define processes and bring structure where there is none, to enable our Engineering team to accelerate delivery as we grow. This person will look ahead and proactively identify organizational bottlenecks, and put plans in place before they impact the team. They will have a track record of influencing without authority, dealing with ambiguity, and balancing competing goals and objectives from multiple organizations in order to find common value for each group.

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.
