  • Will to Win - Our ambitions are global, and we are committed to achieving them.
  • "Make it Happen" Mentality - Our challenges are daunting, but we surmount obstacles and together redefine what’s possible.

We work hard and we like to play hard too, and we strive to create an environment where people thrive professionally and have fun at the same time. Here's a few elements of Life at APT:


Our hackathons bring our employees together to solve the most difficult computational and engineering challenges facing Big Data analytics in just 24 hours. Twice a year, participants accross engineering, consulting, product management, data management, and marketing stay up all night and day, working in teams to solve unique problems and build innovative solutions.  We have tons of fun in the process with photo booths, nerf gun wars, and unlimited pizza and ice cream. 

Data Dives

Data dives are a great way for us at APT to help the community by leveraging our unique skill-sets to solve problems faced by non-profits and public organizations.  Recently, we partnered with Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), the largest hub for food sourcing and distribution for those struggling with hunger in the Washington metro area.  The project focused on two key questions:

  1. undefinedHow can we map and optimize distribution to best match hunger and food insecurity across the Washington metro area?
  2. How can we optimize purchasing decisions over time by core food category?

These findings were presented to CAFB in an interactive session and APT and CAFB discussed how these findings and models can be put to best use by the CAFB team in the future. To read more about what we found, click here!

Volunteer Days

APT encourages its employees to give back to the surrounding community by offering three annual paid volunteering days for each employee. Recently, the DC office partnered up with several local organizations in the DC area for an all-office volunteer day. Some of the partnerships included Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill, as well as local parks and schools. 

APT "Dresscode"undefined

There's not really a dresscode at APT, and employees express themselves as individuals in many different ways.  Engineers are often found wearing jeans and a T-shirt with an inside joke about coding (Hello World.).  Our CTO wears Hawaiian shirts on Fridays, while some employees wear bowties.  Others prefer the typical polo and khakis.  For Halloween, APTer's dress up like other APTers, or get creative with server names! 

APT provides a range of valuable perks - from full health coverage and work life balance options to fully stocked kitchens and game rooms, there is something that everyone can get excited about!

At APT, there is an endless supply of free food and catered lunches. We have sponsored lunches with mentors, advisees, and other senior leadership to foster these relationships throughout our offices.

Below are our current Business Resource Groups (BRG), which represent some of our affinity groups at APT. As we grow, our mission is to increase the number of BRGs and develop them to provide support for our expanding workforce.


The Pride group fosters an environment of inclusiveness and respect so LGBTQ employees feel comfortable being open about their lives, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. At APT, the Pride group holds a monthly book group, as well as roundtable discussions and movie nights. Recently, a group of APTers in the DC office attended Nats Night OUT.

    As someone who joined APT right out of right out college, after considering other consulting careers, I like APT because I truly believe in the data-driven decision making we enable our clients to do.

    The culture is really great. It's a young, casual, and very friendly environment. Beyond that, I've found that my coworkers are truly invested in my professional development, and are always willing to offer advice on ways I can grow. You're given a lot of independence and responsibility, which can be a little intimidating at first, but is also an exciting challenge.

    Within your first few months, you're able to take on a variety of different rolls on each projects, and gain exposure to many different industries. As the company expands, there are projects in many new industries, from the public sector to pharma.


    The work life balance could be better. The workload will vary throughout the year, but there are several times throughout the year when there is a lot to be done across many of your projects.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Arlington, VA) in February 2017.


    I applied for the position over both the APT website and my campus careers homepage. I received an invitation for a preliminary interview on campus the next day. The 45 minute interview consisted of 10 minutes of resume-based questions, a 30 minute technical question (evaluating the functionality of a website), and a brief Q&A session with the interviewer. The next day, I received an invitation for an on-site interview. The on-site interview process was similar to the preliminary interview - only there were four 45-minute interviews in one day with a break for an informal lunch with employees. The technical questions ranged from website evaluation to market sizing, and were fair, but challenging. Within two days, I received a call saying I wouldn't get an offer. Ultimately a disappointing result, but the APT employees were very friendly throughout, and the entire interview process was very organized and streamlined. Definitely the quickest interview process I have been a part of.
