An Insider's view of Quick Base

What's something quirky about your company?

Something quirky about Quick Base is for sure, Waffle Wednesday. Every Wednesday you can expect to see 20+ people gathered in the kitchen anxiously awaiting their hot, made-to-order waffle in the morning. This time allows for a relaxed morning and the opportunity to get to know all of the other waffle-lovers and new employees at QB!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Bringing the power of business automation and the “drag and drop” ease of integration between software systems to our platform. Our mission is to deliver an easy to use, scalable, performant and secure solution to business users and empower them to automate their processes quickly and effectively.

Armelle

Director, Software Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

Growth and Quick Base have almost been synonymous to me. The learning has not stopped since the day I stepped into the interview. Perfecting my skills when I was in sales development has led me to success as an Account Executive. Quick Base's focus on learning has made me a true sales professional.

German

Account Executive, Small Business

What is your vision for the company?

Our platform allows people to reshape how they work without getting caught up in the pitfalls of IT. We help to unleash people’s creativity with a concept referred to as Citizen Development. I see Quick Base leading the next transformation of the workforce by being the biggest and best Citizen Development platform.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned that cross functional collaboration is key. Taking chances and jumping at opportunities is critical, but above all else, go with your gut!
