A Day in the Life

From managing the research process, to customer interfacing, to dedicatedly seeking ways to improve the processes and scalability of our team, there are no boring days for our team members.

You will manage the research process across a wide variety of projects, industries, methodologies and clients from project onset through delivery of final deliverables. This entails managing all phases of project execution, possibly including survey design and programming, data collection, data processing, analysis and reporting. Along the way you will consult and advise clients on standard methodologies, coordinate resources, ensure high data quality, and provide updates to customer who have projects for which we are currently running. A senior project manager usually has 15-25 projects active at any given time.

You will coach and manage project managers as they begin their careers, including teaching technical, research, and management skills as well as mentoring on longer term career goals. Typically, you will regularly meet with 1-3 project managers with potential to lead a larger team down the line.

Along with providing updates to live projects, you will continue to take on new projects which involves a review of the survey(s), providing feedback regarding standard methodologies, collaborating with the sales representative, and integrating the survey. Some projects are fundamentally easy and quick, but many others are complex and require creative thought and a dedicated thought process!

In combination with the core duty of managing research projects, our project managers also have the opportunity to work on side projects of their choosing that will help to make the team a better environment, as well as to help it run more efficiently and expand our team’s capabilities. As Qualtrics continues its exponential growth so does the Research Services team, and that means a need for scalable processes, continued innovation on our offer, and constant revisions to the current practices in order to fine tune and better our operations.

Being at Qualtrics during this time of unprecedented growth is already exciting, and being a part of the Research Services team only adds to that level of energy and potential. More leadership is needed and we’re hoping it will be you!
