Build to make better: Raymond, Software Engineer
I have loved assembling and disassembling things since childhood. No matter if it's an aircraft model, an old computer, an unused stereo, etc. the curiosity drives me to take them apart to see how it’s composed, then reassemble them back and see it's working again gives me a sense of achievement. Because of the same reason, I love coding as I can build virtual stuff called software, which is more powerful and interesting than anything else I ever built. Qualtrics gives me the opportunity to build software that will help improve the experience of tens of thousands of people. Besides, I can always learn new things from charming and knowledgeable co-workers inside the company.

What is your favorite part of your role?
In Qualtrics I can build things from scratch. And the features I build will be used by tens of thousands of people so there is a lot of feedback so we can iterate and improve our product.

The quarterly employee engagement discussion collects the feedback from employees, and leadership will take solid steps to address the concerns raised by any employee.
