Medallia's mission is to help companies win through customer experience. The world's best-loved brands trust Medallia's Experience Cloud, which embeds the pulse of the customer in an organization & empowers employees with the real-time customer data, insights, & tools they need to make every experience great.

Here, we value people for each of the aspects that make them whole. We believe that people should not be defined only by a job title-nobody is "just an engineer" or "just a salesperson." We are each partners, parents, children, siblings, friends, & former classmates. We have different backgrounds & we celebrate different cultures. And, just like our product, we honor each of the experiences that build our people.
At Medallia we hire the whole person, not just a part of them.
