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 with over 300 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!

Director of Business Systems
