Remember 2012? Seems so long ago, doesn’t it? Well we’ve got one last little bit of business left over from it to address: Oklahoma Magazine named QuiBids as one of its 27 Great Companies to Work For in 2012! We couldn’t be more excited to receive this huge honor. From OK Mag:

QuiBids cares for its employees by providing a great atmosphere to work in, which includes a game room set with a Ping-Pong table, Friday get-togethers, no dress code, massages, paid time for community service, employee trainings for professional development, discounted gym memberships, and much more. QuiBids is truly a new tech leader in the community, always striving for excellence in all that it does.
