Senior Software Engineer - XM Directory

Qualtrics - Seattle, WA

The Company

At Qualtrics, our mission is to close experience gaps—the costly differences between what customers and employees expect, and what they’re receiving.

9,000+ organizations worldwide and more than 3/4 of the Fortune 100 rely on the Qualtrics Experience Management Platform™ to collect, analyze, and act on feedback—more feedback than they ever thought possible. With Qualtrics XM™, organizations can manage the four core experiences of business—customer, employee, product, and brand experience. Organizations can be at every meaningful touchpoint, for every experience, and predict what will resonate most with customers and employees.

The Challenge

iQ Directory is what drives the Qualtrics XM™ Platform. It provides a live, organized chronicle that captures the emotions, sentiments, beliefs, and preferences of an audience. iQ Directory contains all experience data, collected over time, creating a system of record of all interactions and opinions each person has of an organization. iQ Directory enables a company to take a person-centric view, helping companies gain a better understanding of an individual person's unique journey with the company. Each new interaction builds upon past information, so this rich collection of experience data makes new interactions smarter over time, allowing a brand to customize future touch points for each group based on past preferences — improving the experience.

iQ Directory engineering team (a.k.a Rolodex) builds highly performant scalable solutions varying from data storage systems to computation and serving solutions. We utilize a plethora of open source and industry accepted technologies for our big data problems such as ElasticSearch, AWS DynamoDB, AWS Kinesis, Apache Kafka, Apache TinkerPop (Neptune), etc. Our human interface is built using the latest Angular framework with TypeScript language. As a Senior Engineer in the Rolodex team, you will be applying your distributed systems knowledge, familiarity with frontend development, databases, and leading edge ML algorithms to create world class software.
