An Insider's view of ActiveProspect, Inc.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I can honestly say that I've never worked at a company that cared this much about work/life balance. The management at AP understands that what's "balance" for one isn't, necessarily, balance for another. AP's open-door policy makes it comfortable to discuss personal needs with our managers in order to find solutions that work well for everyone.

Kara

Sr. Client Success Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about the work we're doing to grow our Self Service segment at ActiveProspect. We're leveraging some powerful tools that allow us to 1) literally watch our clients' first interaction with LeadConduit, and 2) validate our hypotheses to a meaningful degree so we're better able to build features our clients actually want and need.

Jonathan

Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

As a baseline, we're encouraged to attend job-specific conferences. More significantly, though, we're given opportunities to try new technologies that make our product better. We learn from each other, and if we have aspirations to do something new or transition into another role, ActiveProspect is extremely supportive in making that happen.

Kelly

Remote - Lead Software Developer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Everyone at AP is encouraged to bring forth ideas that impact our strategic direction. Team members at every level and in every department have exposure to our clients, their needs, and many times their operational landscape. Listening to what the team learns and their ideas for solutioning is critical to our continued success.

Jessica

CFO

What are some social events your company does?

Our last company retreat was set in the scenic Texas woods and included bungie jumping during the day, and competing in trivia and Mario Kart at night. We've had happy hours featuring a petting zoo. Our Christmas party had enough food and drinks to feed a super talented and equally down to earth team. It’s always poppin’ at ActiveProspect!
