What makes us Qlik


Qlik helps enterprises around the world move faster, work smarter, and lead the way forward with an end-to-end solution for getting value out of data. Our platform is the only one on the market that allows for open-ended, curiosity-driven exploration, giving everyone – at any skill level – the ability to make real discoveries that lead to real outcomes and transformative changes. We are a Values-Driven organization, operating over 100 countries with 45,000 customers around the world. If you think we are interesting, please read on – we may be looking for you!


Lead with Data! This is one of our guiding principles here at Qlik. 

At Qlik, we encourage our customers to use data to drive action; but more importantly, action in the right direction.  Leveraging our past experience, and world class tools, we help many companies drive success by making analytics part of their journey, not the end result.


As part of the R&D organization, the Data Engineering (DE) team is tasked with arming our many cross functional teams with the tools necessary to make product decisions based on solid empirical data; not theoretical knowledge or gut feel.


Using our own product, to help our own teams make better decisions!


Data Engineering is a great place to learn as well. We operate at virtually all levels of the stack, we design tools and frameworks and work closely with our internal users, constantly trying to master new patterns, technologies and Qlik features in order to make our data as useful as it can be.

Come join our team and expand your own analytics skills while helping those around you be better equipped to make better decisions.


Who we need

We need passionate software engineers who are excited about data and stories that data can tell.  We are looking for people who can work with abstraction and provide answers to many different parts of the organization. We run the infrastructure as well as the code on top of it, which means we want people that are excited to step up or down a level to solve the right problem.  We want to work with people who have lots to offer but are just as excited about learning as part of a collaborative and effective team.


You’ll need to have

  • Extensive software development experience. You are proficient with things like software design patterns, code review, a variety of languages and paradigms, TDD, DevOps, etc.
  • Infrastructure experience. You’ll need to be familiar with administering server clusters, incident response, analyzing performance at all levels of the stack, and capacity planning.
  • Team work experience. You’ll need to be someone who enjoys working together with other engineers, discussing solutions to problems, and supporting others in their goals.
  • The ability to challenge yourself and others.  We like to plan ahead, but we’re constantly adjusting our plans based on new inputs.  You’ll need to be able to get up to speed quickly, recognize where we can do things better, and influence change; challenge the status quo; never satisfied, always improving.
  • Excellent communication skills.   You’ll need the ability to interact with confidence with other Product Managers, Development Managers, Engineers, and Executives. Demonstrate clarity and technical depth in communicating the progress and challenges of the data engineering team.


It would be great if you have

  • Qlik Sense experience.
  • Business Intelligence experience: defining metrics, conforming different data definitions, data modelling skills.
  • Experience with Big Data and infrastructure technologies including: Kafka, AWS, Streamsets, Docker, Spark.
  • Go Lang, Python, Javascript, and Java experience.
  • Remote team/distributed work environment experience.
