Meet Grumpquat

Grumpquat was created exclusively for Qumulo by TheOatmeal.Com creator Matt Inman. Grumpquat is Qumulo’s less-than-cheerful mascot. We aren’t quite sure what axe Grumpquat has to grind, but he is a welcome and important cultural personality at Qumulo. Keep your eyes open as Grumpquat sometimes makes surprising appearances.


Building Cool Stuff With Friends

We are building a team of people that understand possibilities. There is no traditional hierarchy with layers and layers of management at Qumulo. Instead we work in decentralized teams empowering individuals with decision-making authority. We trust our employees to do the hard right thing and encourage everyone to look for new ways to push the boundaries of innovation.

    I would tell him we were going to Disneyland, but take him to a Tropicana factory so I can make him watch his cousins get juiced.
