AppFolio was recently presented with two awards, a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award and a Best in Biz Award, that highlight our strong focus on building a culture of happy employees. We encourage healthy and active lifestyles (we have over 10 sports teams from men’s basketball to co-ed softball and plenty of kitchen snacks), foster collaborative and flexible work environments (we host two 24-hour hack days each year), and strive to keep that entrepreneurial feel intact as we expand.

Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award

AppFolio is pleased to announce we are among the winners of the eighth annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, a list of the Best Places to Work in 2016.

Unlike other awards there was no self-nomination process, instead it’s entirely based on feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor. To determine the winners of the awards, Glassdoor evaluates all company reviews shared by employees over the past year. This year, we are proud to be recognized among an elite group of companies that have less than 1,000 employees. (See what other companies won in the SMB category: Glassdoor Best Places to Work 2015.)

A huge thank you goes out to all our employees who took the time to share their perspectives on what it’s like to work here. We appreciate all the valuable feedback as it only helps us to get better.

Below are just a few words employees shared on Glassdoor that contributed toward the award and that made us feel incredibly honored to be recognized:

“Great sales training, great people and excellent work environment.”

“Management is always looking for new ideas from us about how things can be better. It’s a public company with a small company feel, which is invaluable. You always feel like you’re making a difference.”

“I have been at AppFolio for almost 2 years. So far I have had a great experience. When you hire smart and capable people mixed with strong focused leadership, it makes for a productive and rewarding work environment. This is exactly what AppFolio has to offer. I feel appreciated as an employee and have confidence in the direction our leadership provides. I also just really enjoy and appreciate everyone I work with here, which makes working fast and efficiently much easier. The company culture is energetic, positive and genuine.”

Best in Biz Award

AppFolio has also been named a silver winner in medium-sized business in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. The fifth annual program in North America boasted the highest number of submissions to date. More than 600 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.

Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2015 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 46 judges from highly recognized newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to the numerous judges returning from previous panels from years 2011 – 2014, this year’s judging panel included several worthy additions to the high-profile group, including contributors to ABC, Bloomberg Businessweek, Computerworld, Consumer Affairs, Fast Company, Forbes, Hartford Business Journal, Inc. Magazine, Information Week, Small Business Digest, Wired, Woman’s Day, and more.
