    HB


    What do you do at Quid?

    As an Applied Data Scientist at Quid, I deliver custom data science solutions for clients. This may entail tweaking existing Quid algorithms, fully substituting one of them with an alternative model I have developed, or leveraging one of them for a different workflow.

    What do you like best about your job?

    I like challenging myself to think of creative, efficient, and effective ways to provide insights. A big part of my job is to make Quid more flexible, and it’s rewarding when a client can gain significant additional insight from my work. I also enjoy the brainstorming sessions with my client-facing coworkers, whose ingenuity and different perspectives inspire me every day.

  • Web Team

    Grant


    What's your favorite coding language and why?

    Haskell, the best functional programming language around.

    How did you end up at Quid?

    A friend, and past Quid intern, introduced me to the company. I later interned at Quid and ended up leaving Georgia Tech to join full time.

  • Enterprise Services

    Saad


    What do you do at Quid?

    On the Enterprise Services team, I use Quid to support our largest accounts such as Walmart, BCG, Intel, and more. This ranges from creating insight reports on reputational risks, onboarding new users to the platform, and brainstorming opportunities for account growth with our sales counterparts. 

    What do you like best about your job?

    We get to work with some of the biggest companies in the world on challenging problems and deliver those insights directly to major stakeholders within our client's organization. It's no joke to say that our analysis is influencing innovation and strategy with the world's largest companies. 

      • 5:30
      • Rise & plan / client meetings

        I manage our European portfolio, so I typically wake up early, answer any outstanding client questions, and reserve time for client meetings (with a coffee in hand, of course) before heading into the office. 

      • 11:00
      • Customer Success meeting

        Our entire team meets weekly to debrief on topics like product launches or upcoming client events. Everyone on the team takes on projects outside of their main role, and it’s awesome to hear their ideas and get visibility into what they’re working on. 

      • 13:00
      • Strategizing internal projects

        One of the great things about being at Quid is the ability to collaborate cross-functionally. On this particular day, I met with a colleague to plan for an exciting new initiative we will be launching later this month.  

      • 15:00
      • Lassi hour - cheers!

        Our lovely colleague (Vishal) on the Product team made mango lassi for everyone at the company. This was a great and tasty break in between meetings. 

      • 17:30
      • Sweat it out (or hang out with friends!)

        My favorite thing to do immediately after work is have a good sweat session, whether it be a kickboxing or HIIT class. Some other days, I will catch up with friends over dinner or drinks.

      • ​Enjoy team dinner provided by Quid

        The living room is a good space to socialize and build relationships with coworkers. Many of our employees are staying around to eat and play board and video games. A few of them go off to run together as part of the runners at Quid group. I like to stay behind to socialize and chat with employees that I don’t normally get to work with on a daily basis.

      • Hop on the BART

        I start my 20-minute walk to the BART station. My commute is long, but I’m almost always reading a scientific article or a book during this time—even while I walk.

      • Coffee time

        I get my coffee and start tackling one of the several projects I’m working on.

        At any time of the day I can have a meeting with coworkers to discuss projects, or I’ll jump on a client call to answer technical questions.

      • 16:00
      • Coffee with coworkers

        Going out and getting coffee is a great way to bond with coworkers and talk shop. I have had amazingly productive work discussions, as well as cherishable moments of friendship, over a latte.

      • Finishing my day

        I love the flexibility of our work schedule. I enjoy finishing my day in the office in the tranquility of the later hours.

D&I Mission Statement


Diversity is in Quid’s DNA. We’re proud that our first 50 hires represented over two dozen nationalities, split evenly between men and women. We are a family of linguists, mathematicians, management consultants, designers, lawyers, technologists, and many other domain experts; a family made up of parents, students, the religious and non-religious, varying sexual orientations, non-binary gender identities and all of the other wonderful individual aspects that make us Quid.



It’s through this range of attitudes and approaches that the foundations Quid is built upon were laid. Diversity is at the core of our innovation: our purpose, brand, technology, and culture all remain the product of our people and the unique and varied perspectives they hold.



We truly believe that cultivating a diverse workforce - which includes a spectrum of backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences - benefits us as a business and enriches us as individuals. We will foster a collaborative environment that values open participation; communicate transparently across the company; establish fair practices in hiring, promotion, and retention; create a culture of inclusivity across decisions made, big and small; all to ensure everyone is empowered to have a voice, feels welcome, and thrives. As we continue to grow, this will become more important than ever.
