- JobCheckIN - a handy career portal for MU students. Over 9,000 registered students, 145 employers, more than 300 job offers.
- Grants - clear tool of subsidy procedure. From application, through evaluation, payments to monitoring of results.
- Metropolis - information system for the city police.
Who we are
InQool was established in 2010. It was founded by three students of the Faculty of Informatics, MU - Peťo, Tibor and Matúš. They gradually managed to obtain more and more orders on software development. Thanks to that, there are more than 50 of us today and we still continue to growth. We stay in large offices right on Jakubák, which offer a great number of advantages. The working day is made more pleasant by the views of Špilberk, and late afternoons often turn into spontaneous teambuilding on the crowded Jakubák.
We manage to maintain our original youthful spirit - also thanks to the fact that almost half of us are students or recent graduates. We work in an informal environment not complicated with unnecessary processes and administration. It is very important for us to give everyone enough opportunities to work on what they enjoy. Often, after only a few months, people get a great opportunity to be responsible, thanks to that they can grow both personally and career.
We develop mainly in Java, React and PHP.
How we work
- We are divided into small teams (3-8 people) according to projects. The team usually consists of a designer, tester, backend and frontend developers.
- Development cycles are different for each project. Usually the team meet every morning to get a short update. We have a knowledge base right in Git, where each project has its own wiki.
- We enter tickets into Git. Code review takes place during merge requests. Deploy is automated via Git pipelines.
- So far, we are testing mainly manually, but we are also improving in automated testing (unit testing, selenium). We have been planning to focus intensively on this area and moving ahead.
- Every junior colleague gets his mentor right after joining us, who pays attention to him and educates him. We won't leave anyone in the lurch.
- We rely on flexibility - everyone determines the working hours and home-office is a matter of course. No complicated approvals.
Cooperation with FI MU and opportunities for students
InQool has been a partner of the Faculty of Informatics at Masaryk University since 2013. We offer students the opportunity to write a final thesis or complete a compulsory internship with us. Since the autumn of 2019, we have been teaching the subject Modern Development of User Interfaces at the faculty, for which we received a great grade of 1.1 from students.
1. Teaching the subject Modern Development of User Interfaces
We like to share our knowledge, not only with each other, but also with beginning developers. Mentoring is simply in our DNA. And because all three founders of InQool grew up at FI MU, we decided to give it back, at least in part. During the autumn semester, our senior React developers pass on to students their practical experience with development in the subject Modern Development of User Interfaces (PV247) .
2. Supervision of bachelor's and master's theses
We offer students the opportunity to write a bachelor's or master's thesis with us. The student is always working on a real project and we will then use its code. For the time spent working on the project, it is financially rewarded and the best work will receive an extra bonus. We assign a mentor to each student, who devotes himself to him during the writing of the work and guides him professionally.
3. Internships for bachelor and master students
Students can also complete a compulsory internship with us. It is always paid. We often find out after a few weeks that it works between us and that working together for a few months becomes a contract for several years.
All three founders of InQool have studied at the Faculty of Informatics, MU. This is reflected a lot in our composition - we have 21 students and 27 graduates of FI MU.
"I started registering InQool after an industry day with FI partners. In addition, my instructor was a colleague from InQool today, and thanks to him, I became interested in Java. Flexibility, a young and friendly team and especially the possibility of cooperation on a bachelor's thesis were key factors for me. InQool thus acted as an excellent choice for a student with a solid foundation from school, who wants to further develop in practice. I consider the code reviews I receive from more experienced colleagues to be particularly valuable. At school today, I often draw on my experience from InQool and manage some aspects of my studies more easily than before. Flexibility and enormous helpfulness, whether I need more time off for an exam, writing a dissertation or preparing for a state exam, make it easier to find a balance between work and study. ”Tatiana Fritzová
Junior Java Developer (student FI MUNI)
"I joined the company at school and after a few months I decided to write my diploma here. I recently defended her and stayed in the company without thinking even after the state. For me, InQool is a place where one can work out quickly, take responsibility for one's work and deal with large clients. No pointless administration and complicated approval processes. "Patrik Majerčík
Software Analyst (graduate of FI MUNI)
"I joined InQool a few years ago through the JobCheckIN career portal. And I got along well with my colleagues from the very beginning. Not only because I took the opportunity to write a bachelor's degree and later a diploma. It was ideal for me - I was educating myself, gaining practical experience and at the same time I paid for it. From school, I liked the basics of programming, algorithms, but also subjects focused on soft and management skills. "Peter Tirala
Java Developer (graduate of FI MUNI)
"At InQool, I first came across the Day with Industrial Partners, when Tibor presented the company and I found it very cool, especially the friendly approach. I'm writing a diploma in InQool now, and last semester I even got a chance to be one of the lecturers in the subject we teach at FI as a company. It was a very interesting experience. "Ľubomír Gocník
React Developer (student FI MUNI)
How to join us?
→ Bachelors, diplomas, internships
We are happy to welcome students of computer science and related fields. They can write their final thesis with us, or complete a compulsory internship. Often, afterwards, we agree with the students to continue the cooperation in the form of a classic work schedule.
We do not list the topics of bachelor's or master's theses in advance. It depends on the student's abilities and the direction in which he would like to develop. Every student is always part of our team and has a mentor who is available to him. He works on a real project and is financially rewarded for his work. We prefer longer-term cooperation, where the student works with us on the project at least six months before the scheduled deadline.
→ Part-time study
Students have the opportunity not only to earn extra money with us, but above all to gain practical experience with development. They can "touch" how it works in an established IT company. This makes it easier and clearer for them to study in many ways.
What we really rely on in InQool is flexibility. Everyone determines their working hours so that they manage to devote themselves to work, school and their hobbies. The home office is a matter of course and is not subject to any complex approval.
Who are we looking for?
80% of developers (Java, React, PHP), 20% of analysts, designers, testers. We offer full and part time.
You will like us if:
- you are not afraid of responsibility and you have a team spirit
- you have a personal drive, you want to keep working on yourself and learn from the more experienced
- you are not only looking for a working team, but also friends
- you want a job or a part-time job where you organize your working time yourself
- you will be happy to go to one of them for Jakubák
