Work Hard. Play Hard.
We’re committed to continuous improvement – not only for the business, but within our own team as well. We encourage our team to develop their own delivery style and cadence. Each team develops their own approach to delivery with their business counterparts resulting in better communication and faster execution. By empowering our developers to experiment with new technologies and to be highly engaged with the business, they understand how they're contributing to the overall success of the company at every step.

As a team, we work together to create cutting-edge products while also emphasizing a core set of cultural tenants:

Ownership – We own our solutions from end to end. When issues arise we employ Kaizen methodologies and the technical aptitude of our developers to ensure that they are addressed quickly and permanently.

Leadership – Every person on our technical staff has the ability to lead through example, innovation and passion in their work. With daily stand-ups, monthly roadmap and business reviews, everyone has the opportunity to have their ideas heard and implemented.

Transparency – Our team spends a lot of time working directly with the business leadership group to develop delivery roadmaps. Through meetings and updates, we take this map and ensure it's being driven forward.

Customer Centricity – We focus heavily on both internal and external customers. We have more than 14 years of data at our disposal to help ensure that we are the first to identify trends for all the solutions that we provide to our customers.

    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (more than 3 years)


    Every role matters here. The company is experiencing high growth which means there's simply too much to do, which is great for job security and career acceleration. If you do well, there many opportunities for advancement. A lot of new roles have been internal promotions.

    The people are the greatest in the world. They are smart, compassionate, reasonable, innovative, and inspiring. We hang out together outside of work, and actually enjoy it. I would work with my team at any other company.

    The dual mission is pretty unique. It's not just about "hitting your numbers" or "exceeding budget", but about "helping more families" and "uplifting lives". You can view your job as a corporate role, or as a social position, or even as part of the healthcare system. Many think of their job as all three.


    The transition under the new ownership has been challenging. Many people have had their job descriptions change, the founding team has departed, the original branding is being modernized, and most importantly, all the toxic relationships that were inherited are slowly being mended. It's been painful and there have been a couple missteps, but the company is certainly moving in the right direction and is evolving into a top place to work and accelerating their market leading position.

    There is a tight knit group at the top that has been through the trenches together before, so don't count on being part of that trusted circle from day 1. But the leadership is a meritocracy, so do good work, be kind, and have a sense of humor and fun and the circle will expand for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the dual mission, hiring great people, and making APFM a great place to work.
