The Qualtrics XM Platform™ is a system of action that helps businesses to attract customers who stay longer and buy more, to engage and empower employees to do the best work of their lives, to develop breakthrough products people love, and to build a brand people can’t imagine living without.

Joining Qualtrics means becoming part of a team bold enough to chase breakthrough experiences - like building a technology that will be a force for good. A team committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion because of a conviction that every voice holds value, with a vision for representation that matches the world around us and inclusion that far exceeds it. You could belong to a team whose values center on transparency, being all in, having customer obsession, acting as one team, and operating with scrappiness. All so you can do the best work of your career.

We believe every interaction is an opportunity. Are we yours?

The Challenge

At Qualtrics, we’re for breakthrough experiences and those bold enough to chase them. As we continue to lead the category of Experience Management, we are investing in brand-driven growth in order to create more effective top-of-funnel marketing strategies, drive broader audience relevance, and broaden existing perceptions of the Qualtrics brand. To help meet these objectives, we’re hiring a Director of Brand Strategy & Growth to join our Brand Team at Qualtrics.

The Brand Team’s purpose is to build and sustain the most relevant, inclusive, and compelling global brand in technology. The Director of Brand Strategy & Growth will contribute to that purpose by:

  • Building and utilizing a foundation of strategic insights to position the Qualtrics brand for continued growth;
  • Developing motions including brand campaigns, signature brand moves, and audience awareness plays to improve the awareness and consideration of the Qualtrics brand;
  • Partnering with teams across the company to innovate in ways that win the trust and love of buyers, users, and the Qualtrics community more broadly. 

Reporting to the Global Head of Brand, this person will be accountable for building and managing a team of direct reports in brand strategy and brand growth, and will work closely with teams within and across Marketing to develop insights, make decisions, and take action based on both strategic and empirical foundations.

The ideal candidate will have a strong business acumen, organizational aptitude, SaaS industry knowledge, interpersonal maturity, work ethic, and confusion tolerance. They’ll also have a desire to balance strategic contributions with a day-to-day “get it done” bias for action.

And because we believe it’s about getting it right rather than being right, this person should also have a firm conviction about both the strengths of the Qualtrics brand and the areas where we have to be honest about improving, growing, and changing as we continue on our journey.

  • Analyze, monitor and report on the category landscape among our competitors and in SaaS more broadly each quarter to determine SWOT for the Qualtrics brand
  • Translate data insights into actions and recommendations, including weaving together a narrative from multiple sources of data from different teams

What are Qualtrics Perks + Benefits

Qualtrics Benefits Overview

The term “benefits” doesn’t really do our employee rewards program justice. We provide medical, dental, and vision insurance, 20+ days of annual leave, generous retirement fund contributions, bonuses, and tons of career mobility.

For every bit of hard work we put in, we have twice the fun. Whether that means taking a break in a massage chair or hitting the slopes after work, Qualtrics makes sure that employees take time to recharge and live it up.

Because we’re a hyper-growth company, getting promoted and taking on more opportunities is always an option. We hire individuals who have what it takes to quickly step into the next role and take on opportunities beyond their core job description.

We believe in a workspace that allows you to take a breather and pepper fun throughout your day. Grab a beer in the Dublin office pub, enjoy Seattle’s rooftop patio overlooking the Puget Sound, or raid one of the many kitchens around Provo’s office.

We don’t hire cutthroat individuals who only care about themselves. We’re looking for top performers with a wide array of professional and personal experience. Our employees are driven, intelligent, diverse and interesting people who work well in teams and know how to have fun.

Qualtrics employees are plugged into a network of experienced professionals around the globe. With weekly company-wide video meetings and our own internal social network, employees get global experience and stay up-to-date on what’s happening across the organization.
