The Challenge

The Digital Experience (DX) team at Qualtrics builds and maintains a scalable system with billions of pageviews a week, to bridge the experience gap on every device. We currently provide customers with tools to enable them to make on-the-fly changes, including customized questions and messages, on their company’s websites and mobile apps, so they can listen and engage with a targeted segment of users.

We are looking for a Senior Engineer and leader who finds meaning in their work and is looking to build innovative product features or scalable systems that make a real felt impact on the business. You will be working across layers, including web and mobile front ends, caching layers in browser, CDN, distributed caches, message queues, DevOps, file system and relational and NoSql databases.

The DX team mainly uses the following technologies: Scala, JavaScript, Node, React, Redis, Galera, Kafka, Consul, Docker, Nomad, etc.... That said, at Qualtrics, each team has the freedom and flexibility to choose their tech stack, so as we architect and build new services and features, there will be a lot of opportunity to pick the latest technologies that are most appropriate for the problem at hand.
