Our Commitment

AppD Cares. We believe we have a corporate social responsibility to give back to our communities in a way that is meaningful to our employees. Last year, we raised £212,448 in employee donations and 2,144 in volunteer hours across the globe. We’re proud to give back and support global and local causes, and give individually and as a team.

The award-winning culture at AppDynamics is definitely something to brag about, but there are some basics that we like to tick off the worry list when you're coming to work! We deliver a comprehensive benefits package that includes many extras to set us apart from other employers. We listen to employee suggestions and go above and beyond to help our employees balance their personal and professional lives. Some of our benefits include:

  • Private healthcare is available to cover you and your dependents along with an optional comprehensive health screen every two years.
  • Excellent pension plan - We contribute 5 - 8% of your basic salary into your pension plan dependent on your contribution.
  • Automatic life assurance cover at 4 x annual base salary and comprehensive income protection in case you find yourself unable to work due long term medical leave.
  • 25 days annual holiday, your Birthday off, plus public holidays with the option to purchase an additional 5 days holiday.
  • Employee & Family Assistance Program - a range of free, confidential services to you and anyone in your household, ranging from financial and legal services to emotional support.
  • Child Care Vouchers - Eligible parents can exchange part of their basic salary for Childcare Vouchers making savings on tax and National Insurance.
  • Fun events each quarter to spend with your team.
  • Volunteering benefits - You can take up to 5 days off a year to volunteer. We also match the time you spend volunteering with financial contributions to the same programmes.
  • Employee Discount Program and access to discounted gym membership through our Gymflex scheme.
  • Training & Development opportunities to support your professional growth by offer tuition reimbursement, coaching and mentoring, time and job swaps, and formal training.

At AppDynamics, our sales team is the heartbeat of the EMEA business. To continue our record-breaking success, we are always seeking the top enterprise sales talent who want to learn, earn, transform their careers and leave a lasting legacy.

We hire only the best - those who strive to push boundaries, to think bigger and act smarter, to face challenges without fear and take every opportunity to hone their craft.

A sales career at AppDynamics is not for everyone. We hire less than 1% of the people who walk through our door, and are fiercely protective of our winning culture. If that doesn’t put you off - you might just have what it takes. Some of what’s on offer:

  • Access to our scientific, leading indicator and metric driven sales methodology which guarantees quota retirement.

  • Mentoring and coaching from the best leadership team in the business - with a proven heritage breaking records at companies like Ascential, BMC and BladeLogic.

  • World class education and sales enablement. Just to get you started, we budget $37,000 for your first round of new hire onboarding alone.

  • Massive earning potential with uncapped plans and generous kickers for new logos and over achievement.

  • Endless career opportunities. We have a culture of promoting from within, and every sales leader in EMEA has earned their place through internal promotion.


AppDynamics is a true meritocracy, and we have deliberately created a culture of promoting from within. There have been more than 50 promotions in the last fiscal year alone. Every member of our EMEA leadership team, across across all functions, has been promoted internally based on outstanding performance and business impact.

We break new ground and continually innovate in every function, and strive to empower and enable every AppDynamo to reach their full potential and achieve incredible things - through training, enablement and mentorship from peers and leaders.

    I have been working at AppDynamics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This might be a long list...

    1. Management show complete faith in their teams.
    2. 20% of your working hours dedicated to self development (!!!!).
    3. If you perform, then I've seen and experienced managers actively seek ways to reward you in cash, paid for courses, time off. We are very well looked after here.
    4. I've just realised it's actually more than 20%. 20% per week, and then additional PTO specifically for Self Development.
    5. Cracking on-boarding scheme.
    6. Never have I worked with such passionate, determined, legitimate, professionals. Every day I'm working 10/10 just to keep up. You cannot "phone it in" here, but you wont want to - it's motivating and inspiring being surrounded by such people.
    7. Hiring policy is "Only the best" - and it's worked. Though I'm not sure how I managed to slip by unnoticed!!
    8. A growing company always comes with new positions and back-filling, so career opportunities are great with strong internal promotions looked upon favourably.

    Cons

    You are expected to travel. That can take some adjusting to if you've been in a regular office job up till now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AppDynamics (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The process was long (8 interviews) but Recruiter was always there to support you and was very quick to give you feedback. Interviews were very intense but they always tried to make you feel comfortable during the interview.
