Come work at AppDynamics
At AppDynamics, we love fast. We especially love fast websites – who doesn’t? – and we love working with hundreds of customers around the world to help them speed up their apps.
If you’re a speed junkie like us – someone who loves the thrill of a fast-paced work environment, but also knows how to kick back and relax with co-workers once in a while – then you might be in luck. Because we’re growing, fast.
We're a fast-growing, pre-IPO company, and people love working here. It's exciting to work somewhere that you make a difference every day.
At AppDynamics you’ll get to work with some of the leading talents in the application space from top-notch schools like Berkeley, Caltech, Cornell, MIT, Stanford, Waterloo and more.

At AppDynamics we believe in openness. Our leadership is friendly and approachable - we'd say they have an open door policy, but, well, they don't actually have doors.
We’re headquartered right in the heart of San Francisco’s SOMA district. Great restaurants and great bars are only a few steps away.

I have been working at AppDynamics full-time (less than an year)Pros
AppDynamics is truly the greatest company that I have ever worked for, and probably will ever work for in all aspects. The individuals working for AppDynamics is highly intelligent, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do. To keep up the passion and the culture within the company, it requires an inspiring leadership and this is key to the AppDynamics success. The management operates under a clear vision and follow you every step of the way through coaching and development. Every moment you spend with the VP is valuable, there is never anything irrelevant being discussed or mentioned, every story and sentence has a purpose. It is years of knowledge, hard work and dedication that the entire management is eager to pass on to you so that you can progress and be as successful as they are.
If you are looking for a company to grow with, career wise as well as a person, then AppDynamics is the company for you. There is never a quiet moment and its very high paced, their way to reach the vision is very structured and as an employee you are extremely valuable as you are a part of that vision and also a part of the success.Cons

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at AppDynamics.Interview Details
Had initial interview with recruiter, which progressed to an interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager, then had a member of their technical team interview me. Once I passed this hurdle, I then met the hiring manager who told me I will hear from them next week about next steps.
I never heard back. Not only did I not hear back, I never received any responses to inquiries re: the status of the position, which incidentally was reposted about a month after I originally interviewed.
I totally understand if a candidate is not a fit for the position, but have the common decency to let an applicant know one way or another.
Going dark on an applicant, is totally unprofessional and reflects extremely poorly on the company as a whole, no matter how wonderful they believe they are.
They may have a high Net Promoter Score from their customers.. good for them.Interview Questions

Applications are taking over the world. Everything you do these days is handled by an application, from buying Superbowl tickets to paying for dinner. At AppDynamics, we build software that helps make these applications go faster. If you join us (and we hope you will) you’ll be involved with innovation every day, working on a product that affects millions of people – from the ops teams that are in charge of the applications to the people that use them.
