We play to win

The Apple Box Mindset

What do we look for in our employees? An unwavering sense of style. An inexhaustible spirit to achieve perfection. The resolve to quash any non-believers. The audacity to break the rules of business. The character to inspire others. The imagination to create value out of nothing. The vision to see the big picture. An obsession with every last, little damn detail. A constant sense of urgency. The poise to work through the toughest challenges. The humility to carefully listen. The confidence to defend our life’s work. An intense desire to push further—to step up for the best outcomes possible. The hard-charging individuals below.
