When someone mentions 10 years, you instantly think: “Oh, that’s such a long time!”. But 10 years is more than that. 10 years is a journey.

For us, it’s been a journey from startup to established company, from a small team of 3 to a super team of 160 (and counting).

Since it’s been quite the ride, we looked back a bit to count the big moments. We’d like to share our story with you – so read on: 10 important business moments in our journey.

Even if we didn’t get the best weather (gross understatement), we had a lot of fun at the first edition of Qubiz Bike Ride last year. So much that we decided to do it again. This time when it’s a bit warmer outside.

So, we scheduled the second Qubiz Bike Ride for the 16th of June.

Until 7 PM that day, 15 March had been as normal a day as any at Qubiz. Meetings, emails, work, lunch break, ping-pong, meetings, emails.

And just before we left the office, in came an email that would make the day special.

Qubiz Bike Ride 2017 in review

When we planned Qubiz Bike Ride, the weather forecast indicated that 23rd of September was the perfect autumn day. With a temperature of about 20 degrees Celsius and a bit of sunshine, it was just the day for a bike ride.

Much to our surprise, 23rd of September turned out to be a rainy day. Come to think about it, probably one of the rainiest days this year.

Still, cold, rainy weather and all, the first edition of Qubiz Bike Ride was quite successful.


Qubiz Bike Ride: a cycling event for enthusiasts

Maybe we don’t mention this as often as we should, but we’re really into sports. We play football, basketball, volley, and some of us go swimming or hit the gym regularly. Still, there is a special place in our hearts for riding our bikes.

Whenever possible, we bike to work instead of taking the car. Sometimes we get together for a longer bike ride on the hills of Oradea. Usually it’s good fun as we get to hang out together and do some exercise at the same time.

The obstacles and rewards of changing your role in a software company

Nowadays professionals tend to change jobs every 3 to 5 years. You can observe this tendency especially in dynamic industries such as IT&C. At Qubiz, we believe there are better ways to build your career. Why leave your comrades when you can find new opportunities within the same company?

Most of our colleagues choose this path. In some cases they switch projects or learn a new technology, and in other instances they take up new roles and responsibilities. I asked Răzvan – who arguably has the most interesting career path inside the company – to tell us his story.

We’re not very fond of bragging, we like to let our work speak for us. But on this occasion, we need to make an exception.
