About the Team

The SEAL team is the branch of our Engineering Services organization that obsesses over the question: “how do we as a company provide the best customer service in the most efficient means possible?”

We look at each maintenance request as an opportunity to migrate that customer off of custom technology and onto the Qualtrics platform. We think long term when dealing with customer issues and invest the time to eliminate or reduce future work. This team is critical to the long-term success of Qualtrics because we allow scaling of excellent support to thousands of customers. We also drive investment into the Developer Platform that our partners leverage to deliver custom solutions where needed.

About the Role:

Ideal members are technically curious and fearless with an innate ability to solve problems. You get a thrill out of solving customer issues by diving deep to understand and address root cause, not just the symptom. You enjoy working on all levels of the technical stack and love diversity in both technology and problem domain. You’re comfortable switching context when required to dive into emergent issues or take advantage of timely opportunities.

Support engineers here will have a significant impact by automating and productizing solutions to common issues. You’ll be in charge of identifying trends and building solutions or processes that effectively reduce the effort needed to support custom engineering services and products. You’ll be in charge of increasing the visibility and tooling of our current services; this will include modernizing our deployment pipelines, monitoring and alerting, and recovery mechanisms. You’ll love shipping to customers and look forward to blowing away your customers’ expectations. You’ll collaborate effectively and have fun doing it!


A partial list of your responsibilities might include:

  • Work on operations and maintenance-driven coding projects
  • Build systems to audit and measure reliability of services
  • Fine tune services to reduce latency, conduct operational readiness reviews, and automate continuous delivery of software changes
  • Maintain service level agreements and build systems to support them
  • Manage the health of a number of distributed specialized server fleets and the software stacks that run on them
  • Execute regular maintenance activities for services (e.g., handling outages, resolving tickets, and fixing root causes)
  • Interface with customers and client success teams to triage and escalate software issues
  • Collaborate with technical lead and program manager on client communications (including release notes) and driving operational initiatives

As a team we'll build and maintain the industry-leading cloud-based XM platform, helping every business become more data-driven. We’ll not only shape our product, but improve the direction of the companies that use our platform through our choices. Come help us change the world!

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
