Come work at AppDynamics
At AppDynamics, we love fast. We especially love fast websites – who doesn’t? – and we love working with hundreds of customers around the world to help them speed up their apps.
If you’re a speed junkie like us – someone who loves the thrill of a fast-paced work environment, but also knows how to kick back and relax with co-workers once in a while – then you might be in luck. Because we’re growing, fast.
We're a fast-growing, pre-IPO company, and people love working here. It's exciting to work somewhere that you make a difference every day.
At AppDynamics you’ll get to work with some of the leading talents in the application space from top-notch schools like Berkeley, Caltech, Cornell, MIT, Stanford, Waterloo and more.

I worked at AppDynamics as a contractor (less than an year)Pros
Management was very down to earth, friendly, and capable of cutting through BS. Work-life balance was also good--the focus was on accomplishing whatever tasks had been set.Cons
This is in some ways a pro, but I actually enjoyed working with every manager I interacted with more than my non-manager level co-workers. Many of my co-workers were surprisingly unfriendly or perhaps simply somewhat socially awkward and uninteresting. This con did not, of course, apply to every coworker, though, and I would still recommend this company.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at AppDynamics.Interview Details
Got contacted through AngelList. I had the best HR experience ever as she was super nice and gave me every single detail about the interview and compensation and everything else. I had 2 phone interviews. Both were technical in nature. Very basic data structures based questions. My first interview went poorly because the interviewer wasnt able to communicate properly. He asked me to implement a function that returns an integer and I did. Then he said that suppose we call this function 10 million times, how can we optimize it? I started working on improving the function that I wrote. He was not satisfied and then he told me that using HashMap is the right way to optimize. But, what he meant was to use HashMap to store returned 10 million integers and not how to optimize the existing function that returns those integers 1 by 1. There was a lot of miscommunication with that person which I believe led to my rejection. My other interview was not the best but it was satisfactory.
It is a hot company right now because they are releasing an IPO soon. So, better get those RSUs before they launch!
+1 for their hiring team as they provide you feedback as well!Interview Questions

- Trivial questions. Even a freshman, who has taken a data structure course, can crack the phone interviews. Too bad there was a lot of miscommunication in my case. Answer Question
Applications are taking over the world. Everything you do these days is handled by an application, from buying Superbowl tickets to paying for dinner. At AppDynamics, we build software that helps make these applications go faster. If you join us (and we hope you will) you’ll be involved with innovation every day, working on a product that affects millions of people – from the ops teams that are in charge of the applications to the people that use them.
