We will be in contact with you to discuss the next steps. We look forward to getting to know you. Best of luck!
No, we will accept applications on a rolling basis. New participants will be admitted into the program quarterly.
Although you will be a member of a class with other hires starting around the same time, you are encouraged to start as soon as possible after accepting your offer.
The ADI program is geared towards developers who are interested in launching cloud service startups. Participants with ideas in the XaaS space will be best positioned to succeed in this program.
An outside panel of VC experts will consider AppDirect’s input when determining which applicants are accepted into the incubator program.
Successful applicants will be provided with office space, access to technical and other resources, advising from AppDirect leadership, introductions to VCs and other industry contacts, and distribution of their final product through the AppDirect network of marketplaces. These participants will also continue earning a portion of their AppDirect salary (see below).
Most of your funding will come from outside VCs. In addition, AppDirect will continue to supply 25 percent of your salary for six months, half of which will be paid from a private fund in the form of a one-time investment in your company as convertible debt. This will be based on your salary at the time your idea is selected.
It will be determined by the panel of VCs. They may choose to fund all or no ideas, depending on the strength of the product and management team, among other factors.
We are always looking to retain top talent. For exceptional individuals who either choose not to apply to the incubator program, or apply and are not accepted, we may offer staff engineering positions.
Absolutely. If you can code, we want to hear from you, regardless of your formal education or lack thereof.
Yes, we welcome talent from all over the world. For the right candidates, we are willing to sponsor visas.
Yes, for candidates living far enough outside the Bay Area that airfare and hotel are required, we will reimburse for these costs.
For candidates currently living more than 250 miles away from San Francisco, up to $5,000 in relocation expenses will be provided. In addition, we will provide supplemental support such as housing location assistance and meal delivery.
