Software Development Engineer in Test - Summer Intern

Qualtrics - Seattle, WA

About Qualtrics

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

10,000+ organizations worldwide and more than 80% 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. We create software to help turn customers into fanatics, products into obsessions, employees into ambassadors, and brands into religions. 

Qualtrics Engineering 

Our Engineering team is a group of deeply passionate engineers who are breaking new ground in cloud computing and web scalability. We organize and sort terabytes of data and develop solutions used by millions of users every single day. We design products that make sophisticated research simple.  Engineering focuses on these tenets; Platform-oriented, API First, Secure, One Product (Our customers shouldn’t have to learn two different ways of solving the same problem), and Quality (Our customers rely on our products to drive their businesses. Our software must work. If a feature is buggy, don’t release it (if it hasn’t been released yet), fix it or take it out.)

Quality Engineering Challenge

Our Quality Engineering organization’s mission is to build a quality culture championing a delightful customer experience while enabling teams to efficiently bring high quality software to all markets. We do this by engaging early to ensure customer use cases are tested AND fully automated.  We also automate the release process to save human effort, reduce mistakes, and speed overall delivery. Our environment is primarily Selenium, Protractor, Mocha, Chai, Java, JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, Jira, TestRail, Python, Jenkins, Nomad and Docker. In our collaborative culture, you find plenty of opportunities to improve the quality of our software.
