An Insider's view of Appetize

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I started at Appetize when it was (literally) in a garage as one of the first 10 employees. Even as the company nears 200 employees, it has never lost its startup charm. Everyone up the ladder is approachable and truly fun to be around – both inside and outside of work. It’s my first job where I don’t know how many hours are left in the day!


Operations Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who will take initiative, ask questions, be excited about learning, and have innovative ideas while keeping company goals in mind. This does not come from putting in long hours, but from putting in meaningful and productive time to work on projects that are priorities not only for the short-term but the long-term success of the business.
