AppFolio Gets Back to Basics with Annual Spring Hack Day

Spring’s Hack Day 2017, while technically unthemed, we asked participants to get back to basics. No fluff or frills; the focus was on just making something great.

Often the projects selected are ideas that live on the internal AppFolio Property Manager or MyCase “product wishlist” and sometimes they are completely out of the realm of our software. It allows product developers and software engineers to step out of their day-to-day comfort zone and look at things from a different angle. It’s an opportunity to stretch the creative muscles, so at the end of the day, everyone is motivated and energized to get back to work on making the best AppFolio and MyCase products they can.

    I have been working at AppFolio full-time (More than 5 years)


    We are customer centric. We build great software and genuinely care about the relationships we build with our users.

    Executives hold regular company meetings to keep all of us in the know about what we are doing as a company.

    Many opportunities to collaborate across departments. This is great for networking, building relationship and professional skills, and gives opportunity to make an impact on a large scale.

    Once you have put in the time and effort there is a ton of opportunity. We have a ton of great people. Hard work and commitment are rewarded.

    I have been at AppFolio for just over 6 years. My career has grown, my salary has grown, and I have grown (my second job out of college).

    I have been treated well by everyone from our CEO, to VP's, directors, and managers. I genuinely feel like I can approach anyone in the company. My opinions and those of my colleagues are valued.

    The company looks for feedback from our employees, regularly, and spends a great deal of effort building on the positive and addressing any concerns.

    On a personal level, Appfolio leadership has proven to me that they want to see me succeed. The support is tremendous. It speaks volumes that I have received such a great level of support at a growing and successful company.


    AppFolio pays fairly but Santa Barbara is an expensive city to live in (arguably worth it). If you work in the Dallas office the cost of living is a nonfactor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Transparency, listening and acting on employee feedback, recruiting great talent, and fostering a fun atmosphere is something unique to AppFolio. The majority of my friends who work outside of Appfolio don't report the same experience.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA) in July 2017.


    It was a phone interview with Software Architect. He started off by asking what my current role and responsibilities were, the talk lasted for about 10 odd minutes. This was followed by a hands-on question on google doc.
