At Qualtrics, our mission is to close experience gaps - the costly differences between what customers and employees expect, and what they're receiving.
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! Join a company that is dedicated to your ideas and growth, recognizes your unique contribution, fills you with purpose, and provides a fun, flexible and inclusive work environment.
In order to ensure continued value to our customers, we have an extensive set of professional services offerings, ranging from implementation to custom engineering services. The Services Operations team is responsible for closing gaps within the services organization. We enable outstanding customer experience by driving operational excellence across the organization. This role is integral to achieving our goal by monitoring, assessing, and improving our internal systems, processes, and integrations.
This is an ideal role for someone who enjoys the higher level design and project management role of a traditional Technical Architect, but still likes to get into the weeds and write code for systems integrations and automating business processes. At Qualtrics we wear a lot of hats! This is a great company for someone who thrives in ambiguity, and the opportunity that provides to determine how you individually will deliver value. The ideal candidate has experience in integrations programming, with the ability to understand how the design of integrations impacts downstream systems, users, and processes. This person has an “ownership” mentality - while we all have our own areas of specialties, our team culture dictates that we get involved and take ownership of any changes or improvements needed, especially as they impact our stakeholders. The experience of our internal stakeholders and the customers they serve are top priority.
The Expectation for Success
You’ll know you’re doing a great job when our employees look to you to solve some of the company’s largest problems. You can work cross-functionally, are a self-starter, can multitask, excel at troubleshooting systems, love a continual challenge, and manage your time effectively so you can go on a beautiful hike up Provo Canyon for your lunch break!
You have a background in system design and development. You’ve led projects where you’ve worn multiple hats, ranging from stakeholder alignment and requirements gathering, through design and execution of technical solutions. You like to get into the weeds and write and test code, but are also able to step back to see the big picture, and design technical solutions based on stakeholder needs. You can adjust your communication style to your audience, explaining complex technical ideas to both senior leadership and fellow developers. You have a passion for designing and implementing technical solutions that increase efficiency and drive the business forward.
