Qualtrics Solutions Architect - HealthCare in Chicago, Illinois

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?


As a Solutions Architect you will combine your business acumen and deep technical, hands-on experience to help large enterprises leverage the power of the Qualtrics platform and transform their business. In this role, you will work with business and technical decision makers from our largest accounts, as well as Qualtrics’ partners and account teams.

Solutions Architects engage early in the project scoping cycle where the customer is just beginning to define the vision, and often lean on the Solutions Architect to imagine what is possible and determine if it’s feasible. The role requires an affinity for solution design within strict regulatory guidelines. The ability to win the hearts and minds of our customers while explaining regulatory compliance requirements in conjunction with new technical concepts in a non-technical manner as they relate to business value, is a must.

The Expectation for Success

You will engage in Project Discovery and Design Sessions as well as Project Scoping conversations in order to validate the customer solution and articulate the business impact of the solution.

You will accomplish this by designing technical solutions that meet customer’s business objectives while in compliance with regulatory program requirements. This role requires a high degree of cross-functional collaboration with Sales, Engineering, vendor partners and customers.

You operate regularly in ambiguous situations and view those as opportunities. As the solution is defined, you construct a system that is profitably replicable and then move on to the next situation.

The position will provide expertise for scoping and defining solutions for customers with very specific and highly regulated needs beyond the typical platform capabilities. It will also be an opportunity to influence the product roadmap by contributing to solutions utilized across multiple customer projects.
