“As global trade continues to increase, and supply chains get increasingly complex, buyers from brands, retailers, importers need increased visibility and control over their manufacturing worldwide. Our ambition at QIMA is to make it easier for our clients to control the quality and compliance of their product and suppliers through the use of our services and the real-time supply intelligence we offer them.”
Sebastien Breteau, CEO
When you buy a sweater, toy or food product, there is a good chance that this product, or the factory that made it, has been inspected by QIMA. QIMA is a leading quality control and compliance provider that works with brands, distributors and importers around the world to secure, manage and optimize their global supply chain.
Founded in Hong Kong under the name of AsiaInspection, QIMA today has 30 offices, more than 3,000 employees of 60 nationalities and operates in 85 countries. After operating for more than 10 years, importers from more than 120 countries use QIMA, and make us a leader in quality control service and technology.
In 2020 QIMA launched QIMAone, a collaborative platform that digitalizes quality and compliance management for international supply chains.
It allows brands and distributors of consumer goods to connect their network of suppliers, to control and improve product quality, increase the visibility and transparency of their supply chain and reduce operational inefficiencies.
We are looking for intelligent and pragmatic people.
Our employees develop listening skills and put the success of the team first. They hate unnecessary work and they want to deeply understand and evolve in their professional career.
They are comfortable dealing with different people and they share our values https://www.qima.fr/corporate-values
Our Lille office is 50 meters from Lille Flandres station and was freshly renovated at the end of 2020.
We work in teams distributed all over the world, particularly in Asia. Our mornings are therefore often focused on collaboration between Europe and Asia due to the time zone differences..
Our employees can benefit from opportunities to join other group subsidiaries around the world.
Our UX Designers are actively encouraged to collaborate with our clients and busienss stakeholders
Developers perform automated unit tests and practice pair programming as part of our iterative process.
Our platform in cloud based and deployment is automated thanks to the use of InfraAsCode and GitOps practices.
The teams present the latest developments to the whole company every month in the presence of the executive committee which follows the tech subjects very closely.
The platform must work in all countries of the world including on the Chinese Internet ... which is an interesting challenge!
In the tech team, we are enthousiastic for sharing and we speak at conferences or through blog articles (NestJS conference at Confoo, BBL Bazel, VueJS, Firebase and NestJS, blog on PDF generation with Puppeteer and Cloud Functions)
