TIQQE comes to Gothenburg

In late 2019, we established TIQQE in Gothenburg to get closer to our customers in the west and south of Sweden. Now it’s time to celebrate the establishment with a kickoff where we want to invite customers, partners, friends and potential new acquaintances to celebrate with us.

We will treat you to a great evening with awesome presentations of the latest and greatest within serverless technology. We will also explain the purpose of TIQQE and #theTIQQEcode, which is influencing everything we do. If you have a business problem you are struggling with, you can bring that and challenge our experts to come up with a solution for you. That’s just a few examples of why you should join. Of course you will be able to enjoy food and drinks while making new connections with lots of interesting people!

We will update the event and present our speakers during the coming weeks but be sure to reserve a seat by signing up already today right here.

The next generation (IT) company

Imagine the possibility to start from scratch, to dig deep and reflect on what has worked and what hasn’t in our past. The opportunity to build something without the limitation of legacy, the opportunity to build the next generation (IT) company. For me, it’s a dream come true.

Soon reaching my 100 days at TIQQE, it has provided me with time to meet and get to know our amazing staff, to meet and understand our customers. Understand why they work with us and what challenges they are facing so we can build a successful future together.

But what does “next generation” actually means? For us, it’s about how we build and nurture our culture and how we get everyone involved. It’s about our technical excellence and how we drive digital transformation for our customers. It’s how we organize ourselves to avoid hierarchies and stay agile and fast. Most importantly, it’s about how we live our vision – #theTIQQEcode – to ensure a zero turnover of employees and customers.

Early on we understood that to be able to build the next generation IT company, we need to involve everyone. But how do you do that? In our support team, we don’t call us management team, we’ve read the books and designed company strategies before. Company strategies are great to provide directions and ambitions for the whole organization but there is always one thing missing – involvement. Employees are usually faced with a set strategy and have little influence over the company direction. Is that good for involvement? Of course not and that’s why our mission statement is “enable ideas, challenge the present, never stop learning and always be nice”. Our mission is designed to enable our vision and that’s why we needed to challenge the status quo in how to design and implement a company strategy. We just did that in our kickoff a couple of weeks ago and I would like to tell you about it.

We started our kick-off by sharing our vision, mission and objectives but strategy and tactics, i.e. the what and the how, was empty. All employees where divided in small groups of three to discuss how we best implement our vision and mission to meet our objectives. Each team came up with ideas of our strategic priorities (The what) and presented their findings to the rest of the company. In the end of the day, votes were handed out to each and everyone to vote for their favorites which resulted in a condensed set of strategic priorities. The next day, each team focused on the tactics, i.e. how to implement the strategy. After the voting procedure, the strategy and tactics was complete and will now be implemented during 2020.

The output was mind blowing and something we would never had been able to accomplish alone in our support team. I’m proud and honored to work with such great people who willingly contribute with what’s important – that’s one example of how we challenge the present to build the next generation (IT) company.

So how are we going to put our words into action, please follow us on our digital channels, Linkedin, Facebook and Instagram and we will share this next month.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We wish to thank all our customers, employees, partners and friends for an amazing 2019 – Thank you for the trust you give us. We’re already looking forward to an even greater 2020.

2019 has been an amazing year, we’ve been fortunate to be able to welcome both new AWS ninjas as employees and new exciting customers. We’re so ready to continue our journey in 2020 but now it’s time to get some time off with family and friends and charge our batteries.

This year offers an extra amount of time for relaxation. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to get some well deserved time off as well.

See you all in 2020!

TIQQE supports children with cancer.

TIQQE support the important work of the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund to eradicate childhood cancer. Every year, about 300 children and teens develop some form of cancer. In the world, approximately 250 000 children and teens get cancer every year.

But there is hope, more children than ever survive their cancer today. In the Christmas package we received as a sponsor, we met Julius who is 6 years old and has been treated little over 3 years for optic glioma, a type of brain tumour, at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. Julius dreams of becoming a chef and is happy to show off a party trick or two when you meet.

Please support the Childhood Cancer Fund and join us in trying to make a small difference.

New office in Gothenburg

As part of our growth plan, we’re opening up an office in Gothenburg. This is an important step to get closer to customers in the west and south of Sweden. We already have interesting discussions with potential new customers where local presence will be an important part to build strong local relationships.

TIQQE just entered an exciting project with NEVS to build the next generation autonomous taxi pods. Self driving cars are the next paradigm shift in the automotive industry and TIQQE continue to invest in Machine Learning and AI technologies to support customers in their cloud journeys.

The establishment of an office in Gothenburg is of strategic importance to further explore and develop technologies associated with autonomous cars but also to support other industries in their digital journeys.

Stop by for a coffee and a chat if you’re in the neighbourhood.

Planning the future

We have spent a couple of days in Bergslagen to plan for the future of TIQQE. Let’s just say we have great ambitions for this company which will be evident in the next coming months.

We know that our market fit is a bit early. The market is not really there yet where the majority of organizations are mass migrating to the cloud. However, you just need to take a look at the US market, which always are a few years ahead of the Swedish market, to understand the next big wave in the Nordic IT industry.

We have designed and built a solid foundation for rapid growth and we can scale quickly, once the market matures and reaches mass migration. Now we’ve set up a 5 year strategy which includes some strategic investments in people to enable the overall strategy.

Follow us on our digital channels to be a part of our journey. This will be fun.

Tiqqe is officially launched!

Starting my own business has been a dream for many years. I’m so happy that the dream has come true and that Tiqqe now are officially launched.

A lot of thinking, planning and preparations for several months are now complete, Tiqqe is officially in business and it feels awesome!

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a very long time but something has always stopped me, until now. A lot of things needs to be in sync before you actually dare to take the risk, at least for me.

Johannes Uhr, who is a very talented tech lead that I’ve worked with for a while, will join me right from the start. We will start up from my kitchen but we’re already looking for an office space.
