At Appster, we’re always looking for a special kind of person to join our team.
We call ourselves Appsterfarians. A quirky title, but it means alot to us.

Because, we’re the execution partner for some of the world’s most savvy startup entrepreneurs and fast-growth companies
-we need to demand the best from our people.

Many members of our development team are independently benchmarked amongst the top 1-5% in their respective technologies. Our product managers have been responsible for millions of dollars in revenue and rolled out international 12 month complex & high risk projects successfully.

Our team believe in our vision to create an unprecedented development hub for the greatest ideas and innovations in the world and our 60+ hour work weeks show that devotion.

We Have a Big Vision

We have a big vision and if you’re after a cushy corporate job then Appster isn’t for you.

  • We don’t have flexible working hours.
  • We don’t tell you you’re doing great work when you’re not.

We see ourselves as the anti-corporation. The exact opposite of those jobs talented people hate.

We’re a meritocracy. Which means we don’t care about experience or degrees, we care about results and what kind of brilliant work you can produce. How much value can you create? That is how you will be rewarded. If that’s you, you can do great things at Appster:

  • A Fresh graduate employees starting with 0 experience impressed the team so much that he was selected to work with our ’20+ year experienced’ CTO and help rollout a multi-million dollar international development centre.
  • A super-talented QA intern who found bugs a 15 year project management and Quality Analyst veteran couldn’t replicate within 12 months was promoted to a product manager role and has been successfully managing 6 figure projects.
  • A General Manager of a $10 million dollar business took a graduate entry role at $44,000 a year to ‘prove’ his value to the company. Within 12 month he was promoted to a senior operational role and has had huge impact on company productivity.

Get the Right People on the Bus in the Right Seats

Our Founders Mark & Josiah are massive believers that creating a great culture begins in the interviewing process. We hire the right people who we believe match the Appster Values, guidelines to the kind of company we’re working to build Appster into.

1. Change is Good

As an organisation we’re always evolving ourselves to be cutting edge. That’s not always comfortable & means rethinking what ‘best practice’ is. To work at Appster you need to be able to embrace change and always be willing to evolve.

2. Radical Honesty & Transparency

We hate company politics. As a meritocracy we can only judge the performance of our teams by complete transparency on their work, that’s why we don’t have secrets. We track the burndown-rate of your software development, project budgets and then be radically honest with each other about what we need to do next. We value candor over political correctness and being nice.

3. Employees First, Customers Second

Despite our focus on everyone being accountable for great work. We believe that when you have world-class staff you need to trust them and when you look after them, they look after your clients. But it starts with a happy team. That’s why we give unprecedented freedom to product managers and development teams to make the right decisions.

4. Open Management

We don’t believe in creating procedures, bureaucracy and hierarchy as a means to cover for incompetent management or staff. Instead we focus on transparency, delegating authority to make process & business improvements to the team and openly sharing as much information as possible. In short: We hire smart people, make them accountable through transparency then give them the freedom to get results.

5. Relentless Discipline

If you need a manager to make sure you come to work on time or to stop you making stupid decisions then you won’t fit in here. True to our roots in Agile development, we believe in hiring disciplined people and then giving them complete freedom within just a few rules. We have certain disciplines we swear by such as daily communication, feedback mechanisms and coding principles to ensure we ship exceptional work to clients. People who can manage themselves do best at Appster.

6. Solutions Over Problems Every time

Instead of throwing problems to your colleagues, we make a deliberate effort to hand people solutions. That goes for both clients & our team. Don’t bitch and tell us all the things wrong with a situation, tell us what you’re going to do to fix it. This one value has been transformational at Appster during challenging projects and times.

7. We are a high performance organisation

We thrive on results. We believe we’re on an incredible mission many of us are committing our careers to achieve. That’s why when somebody isn’t performing or meeting the high expectations of our clients we part, we try to do so on good terms. But we believe we shouldn’t apologise for trying to build a great company.
