[Inside Apto] How we built our integrations and created a seamless product experience

Here in the engineering department at Apto, our goal is to build tools brokers love.

To do that, we also need to give our customers easy access to a number of technology integrations. We want each process and task to be simple—we’re not here to build a new email system after all—so Apto has to work seamlessly with many of the tools that brokers already use in their day-to-day routines.

[Inside Apto] Why we host hackathons every quarter

"Hackathons are so valuable because they are a time when we're able to think past the next day or week and just build without constraints. Taking this time to think differently pays off with new ideas.”

- Pedram Keyani, Director of Engineering at Facebook

If you’re at all familiar with the tech world, you might have heard about hackathons. A hackathon is defined as “an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming.” I’ll note that while it started with computer engineers, it can also be more than that.

The goal is to refresh team creativity, take a break from day-to-day tasks and habits, and refocus on the bigger mission of the organization. At Apto, that means building tools brokers love.
