We Believe...

... That It's the Users' World
The user sits at the head of our table. She and he are central to every decision we make. Every feature we add to our product and every service we provide aims to maximize the value we bring to the hands-on workforce. We must delight the user and never fail to exceed their expectations.
... In Getting it Done and Doing it Right
We maintain a bias towards action, but never at the expense of doing the job right. Our customers rely on our products and services in their daily work. We make sure that we never let them down, but are careful to not a desire for perfection stand in the way of progress. We deliver a robust solution that is constantly and rapidly improved.
... In 'We', Not 'Me'
We believe that we win and lose as a team. Working at APX is about the team and not the individual. We believe that the diversity of our backgrounds makes us stronger and that as part of this team, we value mutual respect, humility, and integrity.
... In Embracing Change
The only constant in the world is change and we believe that change should be embraced, not resisted. We look at change as an exciting opportunity to tackle new challenges. We enjoy adapting to changing landscapes and responding with the appropriate agility.
... That Feedback is a Gift
Whether internal or external, we seek out and value the feedback of others. Feedback from our customers is a special opportunity to confirm our hypotheses or increase the value of our products to our customers. Feedback from our fellow team members allows us to grow personally and professionally; it is a gift and is treated as such.

How We Hire

The interview process at APX begins with an introductory phone or video call. We'll chat with you about your experience and try to feel out whether or not both of us think there is a potential mutual fit.

If we both decide to move forward we'll have you by our office to double-click on your experience and give a number of team members the chance to get to know you better and get a feel for the work you've done in the past and what you're looking to do in the future. This is also your chance to ask questions about the work we do, the expectations of the position we're hiring for, and get a feel for the culture. At this point we should both have enough information to be able to decide if we're a fit for you and you're a fit for us, but it's always possible that we schedule a follow-up round of in-person or phone interviews to help compensate for some of our key stakeholders' schedules.
