About you and about the role

You ask for help when you need it, own up to your mistakes, and put the needs of your colleagues above your own ego.

More about Apptegy
Apptegy’s mission is to help school leaders share the story of every student. Amazing moments are happening in school districts, but those moments rarely become stories that reach the community. Our products empower school leaders and educators to share those stories and run better schools.
Our unique value is with our publishing platform, Thrillshare, that allows schools to update all of their online communication from one place. Schools can write a message once, and Thrillshare automatically updates their iPhone app, Android app, website, Twitter, Facebook, text messages, and voice calls.
What it’s like to work at Apptegy
Working at Apptegy is… different. For many of our team members, working here is unlike anything they’ve experienced. We’re not going about building a company the easy way. Scaling a rapidly growing startup is difficult, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. If the challenge excites you as much as it does us, come learn more about what we're building and what it takes to be part of Apptegy: Thoughtfulness and High Performance.
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 about both the products we build and the services we provide — that happens by noticing and acting on opportunities to value others.
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.
