A snippet from a talk by Christian Rohrer, McAfee’s Chief Design Officer in Consumer and Mobile, on the importance of user research in experience design.
In today’s seminar, Jake Orrin, our legendary Director of Business Development, teaches us some business basics. After all, who needs an MBA when you work at a startup? One of the best parts about working at Quixey is the opportunity to learn about every part of the company.
Hope you enjoy the tales of Voltron, Scooby Doo and learn a thing or two about business!
For the first Seminar Series video we’re posting, we wanted to look back at Quixey in the early days. Luckily, Dor Carpel was up for telling some stories from his days as an intern.
Dor joined Quixey in 2010 when the team consisted of just our two co-founders, Tomer Kagan and Liron Shapira, and when our “office” was Coupa Cafe in Palo Alto.
As one third of the Quixey team, Dor had the full Silicon Valley startup experience. He tells stories about working for Tomer, moving offices three times, and meeting our first investor.
It’s incredible to look back and see how the company has grown over the years, going from our cozy Victorian office off University Avenue to the legendary Quixeyplex.
We hope you enjoy hearing about Quixey’s earliest days from an intern’s perspective.
We love sharing knowledge internally at Quixey and we want to share with you too.
We are a unique team and everyone is an expert on something. Thus, every Friday we host a Seminar Series at the Quixeyplex. Quixiers and guest speakers deliver talks on everything from machine learning to public speaking to the history of Dracula.
So stay tuned, soon you will be able to view the highlights of our Seminar Series right here on our blog!
