About the Team

The Engineering Visibility team is a foundation stone of the Qualtrics engineering organization. We strive to connect cause and effect. Our metrics and monitoring services empower everyone at Qualtrics to understand the status of our services. We strive for clean and simple correlation of this status with customer impact. This in turn helps our developers drive customer impacting events to zero and to speed up time-to-resolution when customer impact does occur.

At Qualtrics we are owners. We innovate. The things you deliver will have real impact, and quickly! Operating in a small, autonomous team, your work will flow from development to production in ever reducing lead times, delivering real improvements for our developers and increasing the company’s rate of innovation.

Primary Responsibilities

As an engineer working in Engineering Visibility you will be part of a team that is responsible for the research, development and operation of our metrics and monitoring services. You will own container level monitoring across our fleet, delivering host and service level logs and metrics to our horizontally scalable storage solutions. From there the team provides dashboarding, monitoring and alerting services that connect developers (and us) with the data they need to perform effective change management, to get the right alert at the right time (when something goes wrong) and to dedicatedly improve the performance of their services.

Moreover, you will be joining at a time of rapid growth and investment in our technology stack. We are looking to employ leading-edge technology to solve problems of scale and complexity, including Prometheus, Thanos, and other open source technologies. This is a systems development role. You will deliver next generation technology frameworks that empower a continued move to a microservices architecture.

Beyond our engineering and architecture responsibilities, Qualtrics strives for operational excellence in the operation and delivery of our services. Some things you will take part in:

  • You will ensure our platform exceeds goals for availability, capacity, efficiency, scalability, and performance
  • You will dedicatedly monitor end-to-end system performance to identify bottlenecks, potential failures and deliver service capacity planning and demand forecasting.
  • You will communicate effectively w/ engineers & partners and describe problems succinctly to enable issue management.
  • You will perform periodic on-call duties as part of a global team

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

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.
