Mistakes? Yes, please! – Our error culture is geared towards trying and exploring things. This is the only way to develop the best possible solutions for us and our customers.
qCademy EXCHANGE is a platform for the exchange of innovative ideas, both between students and between experts in the financial technology sector. Within the framework of meetups, lectures and hackathons, the participants should be able to broaden their horizons regarding current and future financial technologies.
Titles and hierarchies do not exist here – active participation instead of passive listening and eating snacks – that is the motto of the qCademy EXCHANGE. The bank CEO sometimes hacks on the command line and the student builds the portfolios.
The qPath, a trainee program that is actually not a trainee program, is open to anyone who would like to work with us. Rather, a real opportunity to develop your own interests. You will have a personal mentor who will support you at eye level during the first years of your career and support you in your personal and professional development.

Master of Business Information Systems at the Munich University of Applied Sciences
Working student at qbees since the end of 2020, employed as a software engineer since July 2021
Master’s thesis title: Concept and prototype for operating an existing order management system in the AWS Cloud
I became aware of the qbees through the job advertisement on LinkedIn (qbees Linkedin-Page). At that time, I was looking for new opportunities to improve my programming skills as part of a working student job. I finally applied because I found the combination of finance and IT very interesting.
Something that totally surprised me was the freedom of design within the projects. As a working student you can also participate in important project decisions. Instead of simply being assigned to a project, active attention is paid to which projects fit personal interests.
My master’s thesis is about operating a distributed order management system in the cloud. Here I develop a cloud architecture within AWS to make the system available in the cloud as securely and scalably as possible according to its properties. In parallel, I implement the concept as a prototype with the help of technologies such as Terraform.
Team spirit is very important to the qbees. We make sure that every employee contributes ideas and suggestions, regardless of their position. There are also project-related jour-fix dates and someone is always available if you have any questions.
With regard to the home office, the qbees allow a great deal of freedom. You can work from almost anywhere. In addition, the qbees offer flexible trustworthy working hours, which means that it is up to you how you divide up the work.
I have been a part-time software engineer at qbees since July 2021 and full-time since February 2022. I would like to continue working here after my master’s thesis because the team is great, and the projects keep challenging you anew.
I can recommend qbees for those who are interested in banking and finance as well as software and cloud technologies. There are many exciting projects and a very nice team.
