Come reinvent the internet with Qubit9! We believe that decentralized technologies will be the disruptive force in creating a new global system, an alternative to the ever-growing, centralized, tech giants of Silicon Valley and Shenzhen. As a team of talented entrepreneur-mindsets, our aim is to build a decentralized data cloud powered by blockchain technology. Together, we want to build an easy-to-use, fantastic product, as well as a passionate, diverse, and sustainable company with a healthy work environment. We aim to build one of the most impactful teams in crypto from our HQ in Hamburg, Germany. Our ambition is to become the next big thing in blockchain and in the cloud. 

The founding team of Qubit9 had tremendous success in business in the past. Contrary to some other projects in the crypto world, we are true serial entrepreneurs building a real business. Kai & Christian Wawrzinek were the original founders of Goodgame Studios, scaling the company from zero until after the exit to the stock market. Christian Kaul is a serial entrepreneur who previously worked for Airbnb, Groupon, and Goodgame Studios. Together we think even bigger - we want to build a disruptive European technology company - a counterweight to Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, or AlibabaCloud. We love the challenge of building something new with the potential to change the world.
