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.

    Strategic Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AppDynamics (London, England) in January 2019.


    I have been first contacted by an recruiter and made me aware of the position. Around a week later, I asked the recruiter if there was any update on my application but did not hear from him. Couple weeks later hiring manager of the Customer Success Team has approached me for the same position. She wanted to set a phone interview as next step and it went well. At the end of the phone call, she asked me if we can have a web call next day. I have agreed to do so as well. Call was mostly based on their 4 hiring pillar. She explained me that, they want to see; Intelligence, Drive, Coachability and Experience. I was a challanging call as none of those term can be proved or explained easily. At the end, she said she would likes to invite me to London for f2f meeting. They have booked my flight and provided me details so everything was well organized.
    They are sharing the same building with Cisco in a close location to Heathrow airport thats why travel was pretty easy. I had a very pleasant 1 hour meeting with hiring manager. She was very kind and approachable. At the end of the meeting she said, coincidentally her manager is also there on that day, if I would like to talk to her as well. I said sure why not. I met manager of hiring manager. She decided to included as well in meeting who she has seen out of meeting room. So at the end, I was Interviewed by 2 managers. It was a bit harder but again same questions has been asked and stressed that they only hire intelligent people with drive etc. To sum up, all went well. Everybody was nice and kind. What I did not like is why to invite someone to London if they are not yet sure to hire or not. I was on the way whole day it was very tiring and at the end, they decided to not to move with me for some reason. I have lost a day of vacation and was super tiring.
