People-first, passionate, data-driven and adventurous

At Quix, we believe that great companies depend on passionate and adventurous people making data-based decisions within the safety of supportive teams. Our passion for supporting the streaming community and helping Quix users drives our energy and pursuit of excellence. This passion moves us forward when grounded in real-world data; we collect and evaluate data at the beginning, middle and end of every project and automate this process when possible to ensure effectiveness. Learning happens best on the edge of a comfort zone, where adventure and curiosity bring us, and failure occurs regularly. Quixers share their passion, data and experience with their teams to create a supportive and stimulating atmosphere for failures and triumphs. When teams function in this cohesive and empowering way, they produce more than the sum of their parts.

Success originates with the people involved. Quix focuses on equipping people with the technologies they love and home offices that fit them. We value flexibility, vacations, and bringing people together to form working and social relationships. We know we’re on the right track when people exceed their own expectations.

We’re hiring for open positions across the company. Join us.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
