About Appvia

Appvia is a bootlegged, profitable, tech start-up with teams across the UK and USA. We are headquartered from London, UK and have just set up an office in Nashville, USA as we continue to scale.

We’ve grown from #18 to over #60 Appvians within the last 18 months and have ambitious growth plans as we continue growth across all teams.

Our belief is that there is a need to simplify and automate the complexity behind Kubernetes and being Cloud Native, being able to solve the day 2 challenges are essential.

Our management team is composed of people who have seen this challenge first hand, from all angles whether that be the customer themselves such as Home Office, New York Stock Exchange or Betfair.

All the way through to like minded successful start-ups who have exited such as Pivotal, Puppet, SUSE, Contino.

Finally, a big part of being an Appvian is in their values. Here are ours :

Growth - The growth of every person within their role and domain.

Curiosity - Our mantra is to Fail Fast’. We believe you can learn more from trying things outside of your comfort zone and thus we try to enable an environment where people can express themselves and try new ideas.

Commitment - Anything worth doing, isn’t easy and thus we remain committed to the vision.

Measure - Measuring what we do and how we can improve is vital to see continued success.

Adaptability - As a high growth start-up, thriving with change and being able to adapt is a must.

Empathy - Empathy starts with our customers and their challenges but echoes through our company and the way we treat one another.

Our ambition is to continue to build and create one of the best Talent functions within the tech start-up landscape and thus we’re looking for someone who shares our enthusiasm for wanting to drive positive change, best practice and break the stigma that comes from outside the Talent Acquisition industry.
