Qualtrics Engineering 

Our Engineering team comprises deeply passionate engineers who are breaking new ground in cloud computing and web scalability. We organize and sort terabytes of data and develop solutions used by millions of users every single day. We design products that make sophisticated research simple.  Engineering focuses on these tenets: Platform-oriented, API First, Secure, One Product (Our customers shouldn’t have to learn two different ways of solving the same problem), and Quality (Our customers rely on our products to drive their businesses. Our software must work. If a feature leads to a poor customer experience, don’t release it (fix it or remove it).

Quality Engineering Challenge

Our Quality Engineering organization’s mission is to build a quality culture championing a delightful customer experience while enabling teams to bring high-quality software to all markets efficiently. We do this by engaging early in the SLC to ensure that we test and fully automate customer use cases.  We also automate the release process to save human effort, reduce mistakes, and speed overall delivery. Our environment is primarily Selenium, Protractor, Mocha, Chai, Java, JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, Jira, TestRail, Python, Jenkins, Nomad, and Docker. In our collaborative culture, you find plenty of opportunities to improve the quality of our software.
