AppFirst is a New York City software startup. We are changing the way companies do Application and Infrastructure Performance Management. If you have dreamed of working on the next great technology with a small, vibrant team, then we should talk. We're a well-funded company that's remained small and agile, so everything you do here will have a real impact on real customers. In September 2011, we closed a $4 million Series A Funding Round.
AppFirst offers all the amenities you've come to expect from a cutting edge startup: fully stocked fridge, free breakfast, competitive salary, stock options, your choice of hardware and software, Geek Desks, ping-pong, and a cat to help us with our code!
