    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio.

    Interview Details

    3 skype interviews managed by a 4th person
    each interview lasts an hour.
    different interviewers who did apparently not speak to each other about the previous interviews. sometimes redundant questions (such as can you name your most proud programming project).
    overall relaxed atmosphere
    this 50 words minimum is not helping, i guess

    Interview Questions
    • nothing out of the box.
      some programming questions, recursive, then the same problem iterative, questions about my computer science background, different languages that i used and why etc.
      friendly ppl

    Implementation Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at AppFolio in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was way back and the processes have changed. My interview was phone and skype video call. None of the questions stood out. Sort of white bread and standard. I got the impression they were looking for a happy, cheerleader type of personality, so I went with it and got the job. I'm sure that's changed by now. Just be good looking, perky and laugh a lot and you'll get the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AppFolio in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter contacted me and talked about the Engineering positions at AppFolio. I accepted to talk to their Director. The first round was a Technical Phone Screen. Then I had 3 onsite 1:1 interviews, then another onsite technical interview along with a team lunch. The final interview was with the VP of Engineering.
    Finally they made me an offer but it was less than what I make in my current job, so declined it.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AppFolio in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out to via a recruiter to see if I would be interested in moving to AppFolio from my current position. I met with the CFO, toured the facility and discussed the opportunity at hand. My experience was pretty casual and I wouldn't consider it a formal review.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a big change in positions for me from my current employer at the time and I was very happy where I was. The offer was decent and the company looked like a really fun place to work. I wasn't motivated by it to move from where I wast though.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for the on-boarding specialist role entails meeting with the VP, and respective directors of the Value Added departments. If you are considered a good fit for the position you will be asked to sit in with one of the specialist so that they can show you a day in the life. Be nice to your specialist because they will be reporting directly to the VP or the director to determine if they believe you will be a good fit on the team.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions vary and the idea is to identify if you have good interpersonal skills, and effective verbal communication. Be natural and you will do well. AppFolio does not ask what your spirit animal is or anything strange, but be prepared to explain a situation you were able to effectively handle a customer concern.   Answer Question
