Qbeast is a spin-off of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. We envision a world where every mind can easily and cheaply use all humanity's information to learn, teach, discover and build new things. If you share this vision, contact us!
Our name is a tribute to the Cubistic artists that understood the complexity of the world and knew that drawing it realistically, was a limit to expression. They knew that the goal of art was to communicate emotions, not to photocopy their surroundings.
In the same way, we want to revolutionize the focus on Big Data analytics. The goal is to make humans understand information, not to make machines faster in crunching bits.
We value innovation. We take a step back, study all the pieces of the puzzle, and have a new cubist perspective. We challenge ourselves and the status quo. We value honesty at all times. Not only because it is right, but also because it always pays off in the long run. It improves communication, it sets the right expectations, and it makes life easier. Be a good person. Be empathic, try to understand the motives and point of view of others. Walk a mile in their shoes. Remember we are human. We all have an emotional side. Even though we are rational we can still be influenced by number of factors. So let's talk it through and find a solution together. Build something you care about. We value ownership, we want to be proud of what we build, of our contributions, and we are not worried to take responsibility for our mistakes. We love coffee.
