Qualtrics in Dublin recruitment push

Experience management software giant Qualtrics is continuing to grow in Dublin, having generated 80 new jobs so far in 2019 and with recruitment underway for 50 additional roles.

In total the company now employs more than 300 people at its EMEA headquarters. The company’s platform is used by over 10,500 organisations around the world and is driving the world’s most iconic brands.

The new roles will be spread across sales, support and technical teams.

Qualtrics was founded in Utah by father and son team Scott and Ryan Smith in 2002 and was acquired almost a year ago by German IT giant SAP for $8bn.

The company reportedly has plans to more than double its Dublin operation from 300 to 700 in the next few years.

An Open House is being held in Qualtrics’ EMEA HQ on Clarendon Row on Thursday 17th October between 6.00pm and 9.00pm to give people the opportunity to ‘Experience Qualtrics Life’ and hear more about the company’s growth plans and what a career in Qualtrics might look like.

The Qualtrics experience

“We have big plans for Dublin – our team is going to grow to over 700 people in the next few years and we’re looking for professionals with a wide range of qualifications and personal experience to join our team,” said Bertrand Van Overschelde, vice-president EMEA and Dublin site leader at Qualtrics.

“It’s really important to us that we give our people work that motivates and inspires them We’re very fortunate that our Irish team is very driven to bring the benefits of XM to more and more companies across EMEA.  But they also know how to have fun.  For us, it’s not about work-life balance but work-life integration!” he said.

“We all need to be able to focus on enjoying our lives inside and outside the office”, Van Overschelde continued. “We make sure that our employees take time to recharge. That’s why we’ve introduced a new benefit, where we offer to pay for a ‘Qualtrics Experience’. It is for all employees who have worked at the company longer than a year. After that, employees can decide when, where, and how to have this experience. Then share with us what they learned. Employees have already used it for experiences ranging from taking their families to Disney World to building orphanages in the Philippines and more.”
