The QPLIX team consists of asset management and software engineering experts, united by the goal to create the financial plattform of the future. While QPLIX cannot be classified as a classical startup, we still try to live and maintain the startup spirit that comes with it. For us, this means flat hierarchies, unbeatable team spirit, nerd gadgets and fast decisions.
Working at QPLIX means belonging to a big family, with everything that comes with it: We laugh, we argue, we hug it out. If you have a question, everyone – from intern to CEO – has an open ear, as everyone is working towards the same goal. Team events are legen… – wait for it – ….dary. From the yearly Oktoberfest jaunt up to hiking trips and nightly fifa tournaments – you name it, you got it.
Starting at QPLIX allows you to take matters into your own hands right from the start. As a young firm with big ambitions, QPLIX offers great opportunities to shape business processes with your own ideas.
Yes, you read that right. Have you ever worked for a company, which owned their own office lightsaber? Nah, we didn’t think so.
One of our top priorities is that all team members feel comfortable and content in their working environment. For some, this involves healthy breaks with fresh fruit, granola and juice. For others, this includes heated fifa matches to blow off steam.
The QPLIX office is located near Sendlinger Tor in the heart of Munich. This is not only convenient for getting to work easily and fastly, since we are in walking distance to the main train station, but also allows the team to choose from a huge range of culinary locations for lunch.
The weekend has been a rollercoaster ride, but all good things come to an end and it’s Monday morning. Craving for the first cup of coffee you make your way up to the third floor and enter the office. The typical early birds are already there and – Yayyy, someone brought breakfast. Your mood rises in an instant and while more and more of your team members float in, you enjoy your pretzel breakfast in the QPLIX lounge. Alright, here we go, let’s start to work.
First off, you talk a client through a complex situation on the phone. He’s relieved, you just solved many of his problems, congratulations.
You work on your current project for a while, when suddenly the sound box blurts out the sound of a trumpet – It’s 11:45, time for „Stand-up“. Along with your team mates you gather in the development office and bring everybody up to date on your current projects and work status. You recognize some collaboration potential with a colleague’s project and you guys set a meeting to discuss it further.
While you’re still talking you can already smell the scent of BBQ – the others are starting to heat up the grill. Grab your sunglasses and off you go. Mmmmh, that’s delicious.
After eating, you sit in the sun for a little while before you rush back to the lounge to score one of the popular X-Box controllers. After a heated FIFA match you return to your desk.
Oh hey, one of the colleagues has organized a „What’s new“ meeting to present the new stunning feature. He did an amazing job and you learn a couple of new things. Some time later you finally see one of your ideas on screen for the first time. After fixing some bugs the feature works like a champion, the client will be delighted! Wait, why is everybody leaving? Ah, I see why, the fruit order has arrived and everybody’s keen on the oh so popular grapes.
You grab an apple and make your way to your last meeting for the day. After a whole lot of discussion you manage to turn an idea into a project plan. Good meeting, shaking hands and off you go. You shut down your laptop and grab your backpack – What a day!
