Erik Fjellborg founded Quinyx after working one summer at McDonald’s. He recognised the issue of workforce management, spotting that his manager was constantly on the phone trying to piece together employee schedules.
He discovered that there was no system that could handle scheduling when staff wanted to quickly book or change shifts, so he built one himself. McDonald’s loved Erik’s solution and became Quinyx’ first customer.
