The Challenge

An Employee’s experience at any given company is more relevant now than ever.  Qualtrics’ Employee Experience product suite has had the most growth year over year out of any of our other products. We're building services that will illuminate business’s  next opportunity to create better managers, develop more careers, build stronger teams, and predict success all through the power of ongoing employee feedback.

As a Software Development Engineer, you will be applying your distributed systems knowledge, familiarity with full-stack development, databases, various storage engines, and web service design and implementation to build extraordinary software and services. Each team has freedom on choosing the stack on each project, allowing engineers to experiment and learn new, up and coming technologies like GoLang, Scala, Spark and Galera. Primarily, our stack includes Node.js, Java, ReactJS, JavaScript, mongoDB, MySQL, and Cassandra.

You should love building simple solutions to solve hard customer problems, and crafting systems to withstand hyper growth. You'll have a high level of ownership on everything you work on, which is a rewarding challenge and one of the reasons Qualtrics is such a great place to grow your career!
