Engineering Manager

 

Medallia was founded on a simple idea: that companies can win by putting the customer before everything else. Our SaaS platform does this by capturing customer feedback, analyzing it in real-time, and then delivering it to everyone in a company — from the C-suite to the frontline — to help them improve. We’re now considered the leaders in a space we helped to create, we’re Sequoia backed, and we’re growing like crazy, doubling in size every 12 months. M​edallia Engineering is a global, no­​nonsense, and flat organization where the best ideas are implemented, no matter where they come from. W​e’ve got a culture focused on smarts, kindness, continual learning, feedback...and our people love it. Come find out why!
