Senior Analyst, People Analytics


The Challenge

The People Analytics team leverages People data to inform and provide insight to decision-makers at the company.

The analyst explores opportunities for improving, calibrating, and automating the dissemination and democratization of this data to the company. The analyst meets regularly with company stakeholders to understand the needs of senior leaders and the organization at large regarding issues affecting the Humans of Qualtrics.
