Loving Where We Work: A Glimpse into Life at AppFolio

Last modified on February 2nd, 2022

Our team is proud and passionate about working at AppFolio, so understandably we’re thrilled to be named a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards winner for the Best Places to Work in 2022

As so many team members have shared on Glassdoor, being an AppFolian means much more than just showing up every day. Our talented team is the heart of our success, and together we make our culture, our business, and our customers thrive. 

Here are just a few of the reasons why AppFolians love where we work – in our own words!

1. We make a difference for our customers

At AppFolio, every team member plays a key role in delivering the best customer experience possible. This stems from our practice of working in small teams, enabling us to create solutions that transform and simplify our customers’ businesses.

Through frequent and regular customer touchpoints like the AppFolio Customer Conference, we connect with, listen to, and learn from our customers – all of which contribute to helping our customers stay at the forefront of the real estate industry’s transformation. 

From Glassdoor: “AppFolio really takes agility and customer success seriously, but in a very warm and supportive working environment. Teams are given autonomy to discover, develop, and iterate solutions to customer problems.” 

2. We never stop learning

Learning is a part of our every day at AppFolio, with countless opportunities to innovate and develop new skills. Team members are supported and encouraged to achieve meaningful goals while growing in their careers.

We support career growth and emerging leaders through programs that target key developmental areas, including Lunch & Learns, Tech Talks, AppFolio Engineering Academy, Leader Lab, and Leader Connect programs.

From Glassdoor: “The company culture is unparalleled — your teammates will become your friends, you are seen and celebrated for your hard work and unique talents, and leadership is genuinely passionate about developing your skills and helping you grow your career.”

3. We are better together

We believe that a small group of passionate and accountable people can deliver extraordinary results. And our diverse backgrounds and inclusive culture are the catalysts that spark innovation each day.

AppFolians are encouraged to pursue their professional and personal interests by joining one or more of our employee resource groups and employee-led committees, like the Green Team and the Give Back Committee, creating touchpoints to build engagement and enhance our overall culture.

We also support the creation of employee-led social groups, such as recreational sports teams, book clubs, cooking classes, and gaming clubs, that promote connection, inclusivity, and well-being. Our employees are self-starters, and we work hard to provide an environment primed for collaboration and creativity. 

From Glassdoor: “AppFolio company culture is amazing. The people really make it feel more like a family than a company. The team environment is really emphasized, and the support received from fellow employees is really awesome.”

4. We live our best lives – at work and at home 

AppFolio believes in providing benefits that support the wellness of our employees and their families. We invest in our team so you can live your best life both at work and at home.

Our wide range of benefits include comprehensive medical, dental, vision coverage, a 401(k) Retirement Plan with AppFolio matching contribution, generous parental leave – for both moms and dads, and paid sabbaticals to refresh and recharge. In 2022, we introduced a number of new benefits enhancements to better support AppFolians, including mental health assistance, caregiver leave, family formation benefits, and a new hybrid workplace model to give employees the flexibility to create the work experience that best works for them. 

And our benefits go beyond just the basics. From daily fitness classes (virtual and in-person!) and gym discounts to fully-stocked kitchens and onsite car washes, AppFolians enjoy lots of extras that make life a little easier.

From Glassdoor: “AppFolio provides wellness classes, continued learning opportunities, a generous vacation policy, as well as mental health resources that include personal 1:1 coaching sessions. I love that the company is sensitive to the times and is providing relevant benefits. Thank you AppFolio!”

5. We celebrate successes 

Traditions run deep at AppFolio, so we celebrate everything from product launches to “Appiversaries,” and treat customer successes as our own. We think it’s important to recognize when we’ve accomplished something great together.

Our unique company traditions, such as our milestone oar signings, recognize achievements, nurture creativity, and inspire new ideas and innovation. 

Hack Day, for example, is a twice annual event for our Product Development and Engineering teams, and is meant to encourage employees to break out of their day-to-day work and think outside of the box, collaborate with people across the business, and bring an idea to life. 

From Glassdoor: “I have learned so much in my time here and have consistently grown my career. You can’t beat the fantastic company culture and amazing people! It is a fast-paced, challenging environment, and you will be regularly pushed outside your comfort zone but constantly supported. The opportunity for growth is endless. If you want to succeed here, you will!”

AppFolians love where we work, and you can too. We’re always looking for talented individuals to join our team; learn more about our award-winning company or apply to become an AppFolian today!
