At AppDynamics, we believe that the growth and development of a diverse employee community fosters innovation and enhances our competitive position with broader perspectives.
We at AppDynamics know that diverse teams drive the best innovations and business impact. We are an inclusive and collaborative culture who strive for leadership in attracting, retaining, and developing women in the workplace.
Here are some of the ways we invest in Women@AppD:
It is the inclusive culture created by everyone collaborating together that results in the greatest success. With these truths in mind, we strive to be a leader in attracting, retaining and developing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, questioning workers and their allies, and to foster a safe and inclusive working environment.
Here are some of the ways we invest in Pride@AppD
We’re proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We appreciate and celebrate differences, and believe a diverse workforce benefits our employees, products and customers.
As a new graduate or intern at AppDynamics, you won’t be fetching any coffee, but you will be expected to dive into our codebase and make an impact starting from your very first day. This is the time to practice your skills, solve interesting technical challenges and work on cool products that millions of people actually use. You will be given the responsibility to work on critical projects, and build features from scratch and guess what, you get to determine all the architectural details on your own, meaning that you have the freedom to try what you want!
At AppD, you will get a lot of creative space to try things your way, with our world-class mentors right there to guide you. You get to be around experienced individuals who are really good at their craft -- they aren’t just smart people with technical expertise, they understand the process of how software gets built and know how to manage the process so you learn to build in the right way.
We have opportunities for new grads and interns in our various departments and engineering teams. Our open culture invites you to find the right spot where your passion and skills can come together. Explore our openings and find your perfect fit on our team.

Advice to Management
Keep focusing on the strategic initiatives and keep honing and editing the priorities to provide clarity.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AppDynamics (San Francisco, CA) in July 2018.
One of the most pleasurable experiences I have ever had. One of the main standouts really had to be working with the recruiter. They really made the whole process a very positive experience. They were great at timely follow-up, asking how I was feeling about the interview and the position, making sure I knew where I was in the process, etc. Hats off to the great recruiting team at AppD!
The actual interviews were great. Having the opportunity to interview both with Senior and mid-level Management was great. We discussed not only specific job skills but also soft-skills and how they related to the position, the team, and the company culture I thought was an important and relevant conversation to have.
