Our culture drives our performance

Since day one we’ve set out to build a fun, rewarding, and collaborative culture that prioritizes people above all else.

Culture is currency

What does it mean to prioritize culture? It means we support and respect the people we hire and have an inherent trust in their abilities. It means processes and practices that encourage personal and professional growth. It means we want every day at work to feel fun and inspiring, not a slog. We’ve always believed that if we build a great culture, results will follow. So far, so good.

The keys to our culture

Growth mindset

Growth mindset

We’re always trying to get better at what we do, by being ambitious, ultra-flexible, and willing to acknowledge that we don’t know everything. Without growth, we wilt.

Learning together

Learning together

Our people have many opportunities to try new things and learn new skills through engaging projects, workshops, our annual Day of Learning, and more. Our commitment to learning and growth makes us more resilient and responsive — and makes life more interesting.

Community first

Community first

We acknowledge everyone’s contributions, no matter the role. We celebrate our wins as a team and give each other kudos. Building a strong and supportive community inside Apply Digital helps us help communities outside our organization too.

One global team. Infinite mutual respect

Our team is built on a culture where differences are celebrated, and everyone feels welcome. Infinite mutual respect for one another drives our culture of growth across our global offices. We know that the success of the digital solutions we create is the result of the diversity of perspectives, experiences, and insights our team brings to their work each day.

At Apply Digital, we acknowledge that the journey towards a more inclusive and diverse company culture is an ongoing one. Every step we take is based on internal reflection, constant learning, and consultation with external experts and communities. We have no tolerance for racism, prejudice, marginalization, or repression in any form.

We are committed to working hard and making conscious changes within our organization to build a more inclusive community.

Our Hackathon for Good

Each year we hold a Hackathon for Good. Employees pitch digital projects to support a cause or community organization, everyone in the company votes for their favorites, then we spend the next year working pro bono on the project.
