Appriss – Why Work For Us?


IN OUR WORKPLACE, NERDY IS THE NEW COOL.

We celebrate our unique individuals and our quirky culture that encourages each employee to develop innovative solutions that keep our communities safe and informed.

Products developed by our employees notify crime victims of the status of their offender, curb the rise of methamphetamine manufacturing in the United States, and allow criminal justice agencies to share vital information needed to catch bad guys. We do work that makes a difference, use state-of-the-art technology, hire lots of smart people and have an employee-focused culture that provides the freedom to use your knowledge, creativity and passion. THAT's what makes Appriss great. It's no wonder we're consistently named one of the "Best Places to Work in Kentucky."

At Appriss, we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of technological solutions. As a company, we develop creative and intelligent solutions to common problems.

We're all abuzz on our social media channels. Connect with us and take part in the conversation.

 At Appriss, our diversity is our greatest strength

We celebrate our unique individuals and our diverse culture that encourages each employee to use their talents in helping us develop innovative solutions that use analytics and data science to solve big problems. If you get excited about leveraging your skills to work on hard problems and make this world a better place, Appriss is for you.

So, what do we do? We provide proprietary data and analytics solutions to effectively and efficiently address risk, fraud, security, safety and compliance issues for government and commercial enterprises worldwide. We do work that makes a difference. We are a team of technology and data science experts that are driven to solve complex societal and business problems.

Our customers are leading commercial enterprises, information service providers and government agencies with focus in retail, healthcare and public safety. We have an employee-focused culture that provides you the freedom to use your knowledge, creativity and passion to tackle big problems. And you get paid for it! That’s what makes Appriss great.

Company Culture

Our open culture fosters creativity and productivity by allowing employees to work in a way that best suits their individual personalities. Our results oriented work environment, flex time and remote work won’t keep you chained to a desk from 8 to 5. We won’t micro manage you, we expect you to manage yourself.

We have high standards; demanding the best of each employee is standard Appriss practice. However, we feel that allowing people to develop their own way to work is conducive to generating great ideas and inventive solutions to challenges that face our communities daily.

In addition to our emphasis on encouraging individual expression, a focus on collaboration means that each person at Appriss has a sounding board. Socrates had the right idea. Asking questions and open discussion have converted far-fetched ideas into legitimate products that make a difference in people’s daily lives.

Combined, “what” and “if” are transformative words; and they are questions Appriss employees are encouraged to ask every day.

In order to ensure we maintain a culture with a focus on both results and the integrity of the process that delivers those results, we have developed several core values that set the standard for everything we do. We call it ICARE:

Integrity:

Integrity is an integral part of being a good person and a good company. At Appriss, we are honest and ethical and we strive to be honorable and fair in everything we do.

Customer Driven:

Without our customers our business wouldn’t exist. We’re passionate about our customers. We listen to those we serve and we go above and beyond to delight them with our innovative results.

Accountability:

We set challenging, but attainable, goals and we hold each other accountable. We’re dedicated to meeting our commitments and keeping our promises.

Respect:

We respect others in what we say, what we do and how we listen. We are direct in our communications and practice blameless problem solving.

Excellence:

We strive for excellence. Our services require it and our customers deserve it. We’re proud of our work and all that we do.

Our Locations

Appriss began in 1995 as two young men responded to the need of their community. They established The VINE company in downtown Louisville Kentucky, with just a handful of employees and an office space that was quickly outgrown.

Today Appriss is an international business with multiple locations.

Living in Louisville

Derby City. Gateway to the South. Whatever you decide to call our global headquarters city, it’s a great place to call home. A dynamic blend of new economy and heartland America, the city and its surrounding suburbs present a brilliant balance of big-city feel and small-town charm.

Appriss has been a powerful force in the Louisville community since the company’s inception. We share the corporate spotlight with other leading global firms like UPS, Ford Motor Company, GE, Humana, Brown-Forman and Papa John’s, together with established tech leaders including IBM and Lexmark.

Louisville has much to offer beyond its vibrant business climate

Louisville has been recognized by Trulia .com as the 3rd Most Affordable Place to Live in the US , and by Smart Asset as one of the Top 10 Cities for First-Time Homebuyers. The city has also been rated as a global Top 10 Food City by National Geographic.

As a booming hub for the arts, the area is home to many galleries, museums, an emerging independent music scene and respected performing arts organizations including the Louisville Ballet and Louisville Orchestra.

The city is known for its many annual cultural events, including the globally-recognized Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. And Louisville is a center of excellence in higher education, including the University of Louisville (and our beloved Cardinals), Bellarmine University and others.

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

    Pros

    amazing company values, wonderful work environment with no judgement. The managers and upper management work with lower level employees to address concerns

    Cons

    Benefits are decent but a little expensive if you smoke (health insurance), advancement seems to be a little based in office politics rather than merit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Appriss (Louisville, KY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was fast, boring and in the end pointless. Very regrettable. I wish I had never applied. They have no sick time. Your vacation time and sick time is the same. God forbid you take a vacation and then get sick a few months later.
