Software Engineer • Applecart

Applecart has emerged as a force of empowerment and career advancement within the technological landscape of New York City. 

“Since my very first day,” Software Engineer Andrew Nashed reflected, “everyone was welcoming and wanted me to succeed at my role and grow.” 

This sentiment echoes throughout Applecart, where empowerment is woven into the company’s culture and employees’ well-being and work-life balance is furthered by investing resources. 

In addition to the expected benefits offered by tech companies, such as healthcare coverage and a 401(k) match, Applecart also provides a suite of wellness resources like OneMedical and Headspace and substantial PTO to address the holistic needs of its team.

The company’s hybrid work model and social events indicate an environment that values both flexibility and connection. In this community, Nashed noted, “empowerment” is not merely aspirational but actively practiced.

This ethos of support and empowerment is mirrored in Applecart’s work — creating sophisticated, relationship-based PR strategies that have garnered recognition since its inception in 2013. The company specializes in crisis management, strategic communication and brand marketing with a focus on reaching key stakeholders and policy influencers.

Nashed’s professional growth journey is a testament to the opportunities available at the company, where its culture and innovative spirit come together to fuel professional growth and development. 

“I showed interest in a project that was in the very early stages at the time,” he explained while reflecting on a pivotal moment he experienced at the company. “My manager empowered me to work on it, which allowed me to grow and gain more skills as we progressed with the project,” he said.

“I’ve had the chance to take the lead on several tech initiatives,” said Nashed, highlighting the company’s dedication to fostering leadership and innovation within its ranks.

As Nashed has grown throughout tenure, he exemplifies Applecart’s nurturing environment and innovative approach to marketing technology.
