But the best part of working at Quirky is the occasional giant thank you we receive from community members. Recently, Marine Sciences PhD candidate and Athens, GA […]
Check out this video describing the craftsmanship involved in creating a neon sign for the new section of Quirky HQ, which was built to house our growing number of employees. You’ll all be inspired by Steve, our neighbor, who is one of the last of a dying breed of neon light artisans: Quirky Presents: The […]
Let’s start with this fun fact: As it turns out, Ben Kaufman was born and raised in Oceanside, New York, my hometown on Long Island. Though he’s one year younger than I am, he claims to remember me from those scrappy playground days before he moved away when he was 9. His memory must be […]
Behind every great inventor lies a great teacher. Whether it’s a parent, educator, or even a supportive friend, every great mind needs someone to guide them; to show them how to brainstorm and problem-solve; to tell them that there’s no reason they can’t make their ideas a reality. That was the thought behind the Invention […]

Hello wonderful Quirky Community peeps! It has been a little over a month since I joined the Community team here at Quirky, and I am thoroughly enjoying every second of it. As a Community Support Representative, it occurred to me that I should introduce myself to you all; put a face to the name or nondescript […]
On December 21st, Ben Kaufman sent the following email to the collective Quirky staff: “Quirky is a high pressure atmosphere. We push the absolute limits of every single day we have. Doodling, Breaking, Building, Shipping, Prettying, Counting, Labeling, Collaborating, Coding, Inventing. The result of our way of working is astonishing. Output from small, resource constrained […]
It’s that time of year again. Pull out the Menorah and fry up some potato latkes, because Hanukkah is upon us. Many people are at least somewhat familiar with this minor Jewish holiday (mostly because it falls around Christmas), which celebrates the victory of the Maccabees and the miracle of the oil. One of the […]
At Quirky, we make everything with the help of an online community because we know that 300,000 minds are better than 1 (or 100). Thanks to the unique contributions of our members, we’ve been able to bring some game-changing products to market. Now imagine how awesome a sandwich menu could be with the help of […]
