This is the eighth year that the Washington Business Journal has selected companies for this award. Hundreds of companies and thousands of employees participate in the surveying process for the award.
APT is the world’s largest purely cloud-based predictive analytics software company. APT’s software is revolutionizing the way innovative organizations leverage their Big Data to accurately measure the profit impact of marketing, pricing, merchandising, operations, and capital initiatives, tailoring investments in these areas to maximize ROI. Data for 20% of the U.S. retail economy is processed using APT’s growing suite of products, including Test & Learn™, Market Basket Analyzer, Category Insights, Merchandise Optimization, and the APT Index, among others. APT’s customer portfolio includes Walmart, Starbucks, Procter & Gamble, Boots, Hilton Hotels, T-Mobile, and over 100 other global leaders.
APT’s unique office culture blends a start-up feel of entrepreneurship with high levels of responsibility and impact. Given APT’s rapid growth, each employee has substantial advancement opportunities and the ability to take on additional responsibilities. APT provides all team members with full health coverage, profit sharing, paid sabbaticals, and a well-stocked kitchen, among other fantastic benefits. Given these great benefits, it is not surprising that turnover is low and employee satisfaction is high.
On being named one of the best companies for which to work, Liz Liang, Lead Software Engineer and a Duke graduate, said, “I love working at APT. It’s exciting to develop a software tool that is an essential part of how our customers make critical decisions. One of the most exciting parts of the job is hearing stories about how our customers use a new software feature and how it helps them find new insights in their data. There is so much talent and energy on my team; the problems we tackle are challenging and interesting and my team supports my growth as an engineer.”
Ryan Rosario, Business Consultant and MIT graduate, added, “it is incredible to work at a company that is so dedicated to employee satisfaction, solving complex business challenges, and delivering the best product to our customers.”
Marketing Analyst Daniel Schreff, a Harvard graduate, said that “working at APT has provided me with tremendous professional development opportunities. It is exciting to have a tangible stake in APT’s rapid growth.”
Beyond the business setting, APT also leverages its engineering and analytic capabilities to contribute to the local community. For example, a large team of APT consultants and engineers recently analyzed the effectiveness of numerous educational initiatives for DC Prep, a leading area public charter school. As part of their effort, they built a software application for school administrators to enhance their ability to manage their teacher observation program.
Anthony Bruce, CEO of APT, said “We are excited to be included in this year’s list of top 25 large companies in the Washington, DC metro area in which to work. Over the past fifteen years we have focused on creating and maintaining a highly collaborative, open, and enjoyable work environment.
