Prior to AppFolio, Steve worked at a variety of companies both large and small. He was looking for an opportunity to work with interesting technology that had a direct impact on the consumer. As such, he was attracted to AppFolio’s innovative services and business model—he's now been with the company for four years.
Steve’s primary objective is to create software that solves customers’ problems in an easy and stable way. His day begins with a team meeting to go over the agenda, followed by code reviews to identify potential security weaknesses—all while developing new features for AppFolio’s product.
“We recently launched a revamped credit card platform for customers—and it was really rewarding because it was a long-term project that had some challenging technical problems. It was wonderful to deliver the project ahead of schedule and rally around all the milestones we achieved.”
“To be successful here, it’s really important to not only develop software but to also understand the customers’ needs, have empathy with the customers, and help design the future—instead of just implementing a feature.”
