AppFolio recognizes and rewards the hard work that happens at the office by creating a fun and comfortable environment. For example, the company offers daily exercise classes, a dog-friendly workplace, and plenty of delicious and healthy snacks in the kitchen. For a break, employees can engage in a friendly game of ping-pong, push-up wars, or guacamole making contests.
AppFolio values its culture and emphasizes both autonomy and employee camaraderie. The company hosts a number of annual events that foster team bonding and positive energy. For example, off-site engineering trips, marketing retreats, local volunteering opportunities, and company-wide hack days allow departments to have fun together while growing as a team. Tradition is also important—the company commemorates major milestones with an oar signed by everyone in the company.
“What I love most about the culture here is the healthy environment. Mentality-wise, it’s a happy and optimistic workplace. Plus, there are surfers, runners, and mountain bikers who are peppered throughout the team.”
Manager, Mid-Market Sales
