QFS is an owner-managed, individual company with extensive expertise in the field of software test automation. For 20 years we have been acting as competent and reliable partner, are committed to a customer-driven mindset and highly value integrity and authenticity. QFS emphasizes social and environmental responsibility both in their internal operations as well as their local or international activities.

Corporate philosophy

"Quality First" lies at the heart of our corporate philosophy which is based on three pillars.

QFS heart

Quality is fun

  • "Quality", with respect to our product, our work and in dealing with our customers and colleagues.
  • "Fun", at work as well as enjoying our excellent working environment.
  • "Sustainability", e.g. economic success, social responsibility and ecological awareness.

"Quality First"

The motto "Quality First" is the heart of our corporate philosophy. With our test tool QF‑Test we contribute to improving the quality of our customers' software. We also apply highest quality standards to QF‑Test itself, as well as to the quick, friendly and competent handling of incoming queries, and emphasize a personal, trust based, and steady customer relationship.

Focus on quality in work and life

We are concerned about the quality of life and work of our employees and their families. Fun both in our daily work as well as during our frequent company events is important to us.

We put emphasis on reconcilability of family and working life (home office two days-a-week, flexible working hours specially for child – or parents care, paid nursery), employee profit participation and team spirit (Lunch paid by the company, kicker- and espresso breaks) and health of everyone (offers from gymnastics, table tennis to afternoon naps).

Doing good together

We donate a fixed percentage of profits to charities every year, have received an award for this. In doing so, we focus on sustainability in many projects by donating there every year, as the organizations count on our donation. e.g.

Local projects

International ecological and social projects

Donation budget for employees

Since 2019, each employee is additionally allowed to select a charitable organization to which donations will also be made. With the help of a PowerPoint slide, all employees present an organization at the Christmas party to which their donation budget goes. In this way, very different aspects receive attention.

Our guiding principles in detail

In 2012 we had a corporate philosophy project with an interview of all employees that led to the following principles. The latter paints an exceptionally positive picture: the employees especially appreciate the excellent atmosphere at QFS, the fun they experience at work and the social and healthy working environment that encourages participation and constructive criticism.
