More about the role and about you

Apptegy's sales team grows the company by building opportunities and relationships with school administrators across the United States. Their work has been critical to Apptegy's fast growth and our exciting future. The traits we see in high performing team members are diligence, perseverance, and a strong work ethic.

What it’s like to work at Apptegy

Working at Apptegy is… different. For most of our team members working here is unlike anything they’ve ever experienced. We have an entire floor to ourselves in the Simmons Building (the tallest in Arkansas). The office has all the usual perks of a thriving startup. Yet, being part of our team is much more than perks; our most important asset is our culture. 

If we get the right people working together in productive ways, we can do anything.

Thoughtfulness: Internally, we look for chances to make each others’ days. Noticing someone needs a pick-me-up, remembering birthdays, and celebrating others’ success all help strengthen our internal bonds. Externally, we want to amaze people with how much we care in both the products we build and the services we provide  — that happens by noticing and acting on opportunities to value others.

High Performance: What we are trying to accomplish is hard. While thoughtfulness is central to how we engage others, a personal ethic of high performance is needed across the company for us to succeed. High performance is a major focus in every role across the company.
