The Challenge

As a Solutions Architect you will combine your research and business acumen along with deep technical, hands-on experience to help large enterprises leverage the power of the Qualtrics platform and Qualtrics Research Services in order to transform their business.  In this role, you will work with research and technical decision-makers from our largest accounts, as well as Qualtrics’ technology partners, research services delivery teams and customer account teams.

Solutions Architects engage early in the project lifecycle where the customer is just beginning to define the vision, imagine what is possible and determine if it’s feasible.   The role requires an affinity for market research & research design, solution selling, technology evangelism and customer engagement. The ability to win the hearts and minds of our customers while explaining market research methodologies and abstract technical concepts as they relate to business value, is a must.   

The Expectation for Success

You will lead Project Discovery and Design Sessions as well as Project Scoping conversations in order to validate the customer solution and articulate the business impact of the solution.

You will accomplish this by designing market research and technology solutions that meet customer’s business objectives. This role requires a high degree of cross-functional collaboration with Sales, Research Services Delivery, Engineering, and customers.

The position will provide technical expertise for scoping and defining solutions for customers with needs beyond the typical platform capabilities. It will also be an opportunity to influence the product roadmap by contributing to solutions utilised across multiple customer projects.

  • Be a self-starter who takes ownership of opportunities, works independently, manages multiple simultaneous projects, and deals well with ambiguity and last-minute changes.
  • Have the ability and passion necessary to maintain research expertise with emerging methodologies and technologies, including competitive technologies, while continuing to manage customer opportunities.

Requirements

  • 3 to 5 years market research or technical design experience
  • In-depth knowledge of market research methodologies, specifically those related to brand research
  • Ability to elicit customer needs through scoping and design sessions and translate into technical and research solutions
  • Ability to navigate a complex and changing environment while working with multiple internal and external stakeholders
