    AppDirect, Amazon, And The Role Of The Middleman | Xconomy

    Updated 5/11/17 10:21 am. See below.] Daniel Saks, co-founder of a fast-growing San Francisco tech company, says he admires Amazon for taking the friction out of "finding stuff and buying stuff." Worn-out sheets? No need to drive to Bed Bath & Beyond, he says.

  • The AppDirect family gets bigger as we welcome Radialpoint, who will be bringing the 'human element' to cloud services by powering premium technical support.

    AppDirect acquires Radialpoint. Because . . . support

    AppDirect today announced that it has acquired Radialpoint. So who is Radialpoint and why does this deal make sense? Radialpoint has, since its inception in 1997, offered technical support for small businesses and consumers. While it's certainly not sexy, it is Radialpoint's job to pick up the pieces once nontechnical customers buy a piece of technology and suffer the inevitable issues around using it.

    I have been working at AppDirect full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, very flexible schedule, you can get breakfast, lunch, snacks and coffee for free every day in the fully stocked kitchen. Super fun events and the holiday party is amazing. Overall, we are very spoiled.

    Career growth is very possible, though nothing formal is in place yet (heard it's coming in 2019).

    The culture in Montreal is wonderful. Majority male because of the heavy engineering presence, but never ever toxic, and managers and recruiting are doing all they can to make a more diverse team.

    Managers genuinely care about their people and want to always improve. The people here are some of the best and brightest I've worked with.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes in the past couple years. All of them made sense and we understand their rationale, but it has been tiring.

    You need to be open to change, curious to learn and be comfortable with challenges to succeed at AppDirect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people and keep a clear communication strategy whenever there are changes - but please keep them to a minimum if you can. We want to work and grow in a somewhat consistent environment.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AppDirect (San Francisco, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was not looking for a job and the recruiter contacted me with an engaging message. He did a good job selling the opportunity and set up me to talk to the exec. After a thorough phone interview, I came onsite to meeting with leaders in the company. The recruiter was on top of it during the whole process, continually checking in and letter me know where things stand. Onsite interview was an amazing experience.
