Last week, Applied Predictive Technologies (APT), a Mastercard company, launched Mastercard's Girls4Tech initiative with an event at its Arlington office. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ4D4—30+ days ago
APT’s products employ patented algorithms and workflow to design and interpret business experiments that evaluate, target, and refine proposed business programs. Many of the world's largest and most successful organizations license APT's cloud-based software.
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 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:
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.
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.
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 strives to create a diverse and inclusive environment for all of its employees. Having multiple perspectives is imperative when working with a diverse portfolio of clients and variety of industries. We are committed to recruiting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce.
The Business Resource Groups provide employees with an opportunity to get involved in things that might not otherwise be a part of their day-to-day job functions. Members are able to enhance their own cultural awareness, develop leadership skills and network across business units and levels.
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.
The Latin Network brings together employees of Latin descent for professional development and networking, while offering insights into the Hispanic consumer segment and organizations.
The Women’s Leadership Network seeks to advance women’s careers and performance through a culture of mentoring and coaching. Each month, WLN holds a variety of events including a "Share Your Passion" series, professional development sessions, and a recent happy hour for International Women's Day. The women in Product Development recently got together to have dinner together!
I have been working at Applied Predictive Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)
APT is a great place to start and grow a career. I joined as a Business Consultant and continue to be challenged with new responsibilities and leadership opportunities. The employees and leaders really care about the growth and development of each of us and maintaining a culture and environment that is supportive, engaging, and challenging. I love working with a top-notch set of individuals who care about producing quality work, the impact we make with our clients, and one another.
The consulting track is not a 40 hour a week, never take work home with you job. Along with responsibility and opportunity comes hard work and some travel, the latter of which increases as you take on more clients. It's not something I'd give up for the opportunity I have, but it's not for everyone.
Advice to Management
Continue to care about our people and our culture, especially as we grow domestically and internationally. Thank you for all that you do to make APT a great place to work
I applied online. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Washington, DC) in November 2017.
Intern Position: 1 on campus interview (45 minutes, 15 mins fit 20 mins case 10 mins questions), followed by final round in DC office (4 total interviews just like the first round, plus a presentation by a Senior VP and lunch with 3 Business Consultants (and a group of interviewees). First round and final round were similar in difficulty, both rather straightforward cases and math/profitability focused. People were all very kind. Heard back the night of the final round by phone call.
