Who We Are

We believe that every student, every idea, and every startup has the possibility to do great things. To shape culture. To disrupt business. To inspire change. At Quarter Zero (QØ), we exist to propel that possibility.

Quarter Zero is a fast-paced startup run by a small and nimble team based in Santa Barbara, California. We work hard because we believe in our mission, but we also work smart because we believe in efficiency. We value a flat hierarchical structure and actively look for opportunities where team members can grow in their experience and voice their insights.

At Quarter Zero, we are committed to diversity both in our programs and in our company. We often ask our students to leverage their unique perspective to solve a problem. Similarly, we are looking for individuals who can leverage their unique backgrounds to drive greater impact and serve a diverse set of students.
