What is APT?

We are a leading analytics company that helps top global organizations take the ambiguity out of decision-making through our Test & Learn® software and other products. APT’s client portfolio features some of the world’s best known brands, including Walmart, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, Victoria’s Secret, T-Mobile, and others. Through our innovative technology, we enable business leaders to make better, fact-based decisions more quickly and effectively to create large-scale, lasting value. If you are interested in beginning or building a career in strategic consulting, APT is the perfect environment to gain hands-on experience and take ownership of a diverse range of projects. As part of our consulting team, you will play a substantial role on multiple client teams and gain exposure to a wide range of industries.

 

What does APT do?

 

APT helps senior executives of consumer-facing organizations make investment decisions that can drive millions of dollars in increased profits. We work with our clients to build their key strategies, guiding corporate decisions including:

 

  • We’re considering investing hundreds of millions of dollars in rolling out the “store of the future” across our chain – what impact will our investment have on store sales?
  • A sports celebrity endorsement costs us tens of millions of dollars per year – is it worth it for us to continue the endorsement? 
  • We’ve designed two versions of a major new product line.  Which one would be more successful in our East Coast stores?
  • Do sponsored ads alongside Google search results drive off-line sales in brick-and-mortar stores?

 

APT answers these high stakes questions through a powerful combination of analytically-driven strategy consulting and enterprise software.

 

What does this mean to you?

At APT, you are expected to not only have a tremendous impact in transforming our clients, but also have a leading role in shaping APT’s future. If you are looking for the career opportunities of a high growth startup with the stability of a profitable organization, then APT could be the right place for you.

 

In recent years, APT has been named a Best Place to Work by Glassdoor, Top Workplace by The Washington Post, and a Top Workplace for Millennials by Fortune Magazine.

 

We look forward to meeting you!
