Our Roots

Appcastians take immense pride in our distinctive independence. Our founding roots stretch across the landscapes of New Hampshire, Belarus, and New Brunswick (Canada) – representing not only geographical origins but also the rich cultural tapestries woven by our original teams.

Our Expanded Appcast Family

In 2019, Appcast was acquired by the Stepstone Group, the 3rd largest ‘jobs’ business in the world (behind Indeed & LinkedIn)marking a significant milestone in the evolution of both organizations. Our roots grew as we acquired Bayard Advertising in July 2023. This pivotal move added an amazing team of recruitment marketing experts to our mix and expanded our footprint with six new offices across the United States. Despite the diverse origins and backgrounds, there’s a shared quality that binds us all: a resounding determination to march to the beat of our own drums while harmonizing into a collective rhythm defines the essence of who we are.

What Brings Us Joy

We like to build things that have value for our clients and where we can see the impact of our efforts. Appcastians work hard, and it’s important for each individual to see how what they do everyday matters. It’s a simple concept, but incredibly rewarding.

Chris Forman CEO Appcast

We’re focused on doing good. This isn’t some hippy commune, ‘free love’ thing… it’s a business strategy. People want, need, and seek out purpose – personally AND professionally. At Appcast, that comes both from changing how companies find talent and the good works we do in our communities – whether it be using our hands to build schools, our hearts to serve others at the community kitchen, or our voices to stand with those who need support.

Family drives our mission. We are motivated to work hard so that our more than 500+ employees (and growing!) can take care of their families while enjoying their lives at the same time. Feeling your work matters to your clients, family, and community is the foundation of what we have tried to create at Appcast. We believe it makes a stronger business and a more resolute team.

The Batey Foundation
Good works outside of work

Sharing our success with those less fortunate is a large part of what drives us to work hard. From volunteering at community kitchens and supporting our local schools, to supporting The Batey Foundation (pictured right), we want to extend our reach outside the walls of our offices.

Everyday pionerds

Sure, we geek out over data and tech, but at the end of the day we’re just a bunch of good people who like to have fun.
