WE WORK THE FUTURE, BUT PLAY OLD-SCHOOL

Our game lounge and hallways are stocked with plenty of unique, fun arcade goodness from the 1930s through the 1990s. They don’t always work, but when they do it’s absolutely Back to the Future. Getting’ it on like Donkey Kong...

A HIDDEN GEM, A SECRET FACT

Salt Springs Brewery in Saline is a favorite amongst our staff, and located in an antique church. Few know that QS actually considered purchasing the building long before it was renovated into the awesome brewpub it is today. We are very happy things turned out the way they did – they make the beer at the Church of Hops, we do the engineering at the School of Code!

MAIZE AND BLUE

QS is a 1999 spin-off of the University of Michigan College of Engineering. Don’t worry, though – there’s no rivalry at Quantum. MSU fans and graduates are welcome, and we mostly try not to put their desks in the basement torture chamber. Mostly.

WE ARE ALWAYS UP FOR A CHALLENGE

QS fielded two outstanding teams at the most recent Saline Celtic Festival Mastodon Challenge! Is there’s any question as to whether we’re hard-core or not, consider this: Bill Meabrod, one of our esteemed coders, did it barefoot using his self-described “Hobbit Feet” on the entire mission.

GETTING IN THE SPIRIT

Each year QS hosts a Halloween costume contest, and few can resist to throw in their hat. At a recent one, CEO Mitch Rohde rocked his Tron costume – showing both his dorkiness and vintage all in one disturbing swoop! End of line.

CTRL + ALT + DELETE

Working out the kinks in vehicle teleoperation can be fun; from a safe distance of course!

BUMP. SET. SPIKE!

Weekly volleyball matches get pretty intense at Quantum Signal. The gym is regulation, the players not-so-much. It’s like the volleyball scene from Top Gun, minus the sand and plus the C++ experience level...

SAVING LIVES. SAVING FRIES.

QS doesn’t just keep soldiers safe – we’re also single-handedly responsible for the return of waffle fries at Dan's Downtown Tavern, one of our favorite lunch spots. Now, about those curly fries...

WE CELEBRATE THE VICTORIES

Sometimes it's a trip to Cedar Point, other times a t-shirt and BBQ lunch, and still other times an engineering-grade sheetcake. Don't worry, we make management eat the non-chocolate parts.

IT'S TIME FOR A DOUBLE BILL...

QS' co-founder, Dr. William J. Williams, is named after a famous figure in Scottish history. He is also a distant cousin of Bob Evans, of restaurant fame!

GOAT, MOOSE, SHEEP – INDIVIDUALS OR FLOCKS – WHATEVER YOU NEED...

QS has built a variety of virtual animals for M&S environments, including a friendly goat with an accurate gate and simulated hoof forces. Yes, we were contracted to do it. Yes, we will tell you the story if you buy us a beer...

A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT...

"What are you milling Kevin?" - "A girlfriend. She'll be perfect."

AND WE SMILE A LOT MORE, TOO!

Back in 1931, this facility housed the finest Saline athletes. Today, it houses the finest Saline MATHLETES!

SEEING OBSTACLES, AND EATING THEM

James Walker, our in-house Robot Whisperer, once emerged victorious from a Wendy’s "Meat Cube" challenge. Hard-core coding, hard core burger consumption – that’s the QS way.

OUR QA THINKS, AND THUS IS...

Dan Rice, QS Quality Assurance Maestro and all around cool dude, majored in philosophy and once wrote a paper on Aristotle's Philosophy of Mind! His tickets are more Socrates than Nietzsche, though.

QS: WHERE ROBOTS ARE LIKE FAMILY

We figure being nice to the 'bots now will help ingratiate us with our future robot overlords.

ALWAYS READY TO RUMBLE

In 2014/2015 QS built and released a little game called "Rustbucket Rumble" – a casual multi-robot mash-em-up craze-fest. It had a fanbase, but didn’t make it big enough to warrant a sequel. Still, we miss those little critters...

SOMETIMES, YOU GET TAGGED

We'll assume this was a comment on the political situation and not our codebase….
