Hi. Thinking on applying / joining Qualtrics.

Qualtrics folks, do you guys have some tech challenges to work on? what staff and principal sdes are doing?
Do you guys have some complex systems (not just doing ETL on survey responses)? Any distributed systems?
Is there any growth opportunity? If so, which teams?

    I've worked at Qualtrics for 3 years and I've never worked on anything directly related to Surveys (only tangentially related). Best to think of Qualtrics problems as data problems, not survey problems. The fact that some of the data is collected through surveys is pretty irrelevant to systems we build.

      Yeah data is collected from surveys, but later ETLed for visualization, thatโ€™s it. Where is the challenge? Maybe I am missing something here. Are you still at Qualtrics? If not, why did you leave? What level you are there? Can I DM you further questions?

      Potential to increase TC? Work on something interesting (if any).

      Why not a startup or google or Apple or even LinkedIn? SAP is a sad political mess.

      Qualtrics is not yet SAP. Is it? But sure, trying to those as well. I donโ€™t think there is no politics in Apple or any other big company.

    Thanks for reply. The bar is low on what? Hiring bar? TC bar? As for TC I guess it depends on the level you get in, some people here cited good numbers for senior engs. Did you interview with them or worked in the past?

    They use aws, for sure. And they actually have some interesting problems to solve. You can ask them in the interview. Their bar is low though, and most likely you wonโ€™t see a TC increase.
