Get a feel for ours

Our 4 key pillars

Collaboration

As an employer of a bunch of geniuses, we’re in a unique position to be able to leverage a veritable crapload of collective brainpower in about a bazillion different disciplines. We urge our team to always be humble, hungry, and coachable to accept new information and generous to share your own knowledge. It’s all collaboration over competition here. Because we believe we go further by going together. 

Appreciation

You come to work every morning and give us your best. We respect that and appreciate your commitment as well as this exchange of your time and talent. If you’re here, we see you, and we appreciate you.

Community

We also appreciate the customers and communities who allow us to do what we do and make a good living in the heart of the Midwest. We feel called to give back to those less fortunate and to the communities who have given us so much.

Connection

It’s our middle name. We hope to leave a lasting impact and have a ripple effect of kindness and knowledge sharing with every interaction we encounter. Whoever we cross paths with is plugged into this power source, and we aim to light others up, whether with kindness, with knowledge, or preferably both. 

But what's it really like?

Well now that you asked...

We have traditions.

Fitness competitions. Fantasy leagues. Fierce contests. Spirit days. Holidays. Breakfast pizza days. 

We have fun.

We like hanging out. Frequent office happy hours, random potlucks and family get-togethers, and a lake day and a Christmas party every year.

We're passionate.

We all have a shared passion of helping people go further with technology, but we’ve also got about a thousand different ones. Podcasting. Camping. Woodworking. Hair styling. Slapping the bass. Photography. Hunting. What makes us different makes us awesome. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the superpowers of a diverse group of rock stars.

We're Nebraskan IN OUR VALUES.

Work hard. Be honest. Spread kindness. Throw the bones. Husker power. You know the drill.

We're big on Philanthropy.

This is important to us. Team Jack. Habitat for Humanity. Blessings in a Backpack. Santa Buddies. Operation Gratitude. Food drives. Blood drives. There are a handful of wonderful causes we all rally behind as a group and several more our employees are moved to participate in individually.

We're problem-solvers.

Let’s make life easier. Let’s find a creative solution. We’re motivated by challenges and enjoy the process of learning and growing. Growth mindsets are the name of the game.

We believe KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

So we not only aim to help educate our customers, we’re also devoted to continually staying on the cutting edge of our field and also engage in countless team meetings, development opportunities, and product and software trainings. 

and in the power of PEOPLE.

We’re a technology company, but we know there’s no replacing the power of the human connection. We’re building something special here. And we’ll save you a spot if you want to be part of it too.

What our employees say about working here

“A very positive place to work. Everyone pitches in to help each other. I really feel like I’m appreciated and part of the team. Management really cares—I have never not felt appreciated at Applied Connective. You feel like you’re part of the big picture.”

Scott Whaley, IT Technician

Our manifesto

“We don’t just want Applied Connective to be a good place to work. We want it to be the best place to work. A place they feel they are contributing their gifts, talents, and strengths and are appreciated for it and have the opportunity to grow and be part of something special.”   —PLACEHOLDER QUOTE FOR ED KNOTT (PRESIDENT)

We believe in the power of people and connection. Our goal is that every employee is in a role or position is where they can really shine and have room to grow. That it gives them a chance to max out their full potential. I want this to be a place people love coming every morning. I want this to be an environment people love to spend their days. We want their work to be something they’re passionate about and something that fuels them. Something that gives me great pride is the fact that people stick around for happy hour after work. That they have their own Snapchat group chats. That they organize their own get-togethers. That after spending 40 hours together, they go home some weekends and grab their families and come back to spend even more time together. We think 40 hours a week is too much of your life to spend somewhere you DON’T absolutely love. You show up every day and give us your best. We want to make sure you’re showing up somewhere you love.

 

“I don’t just want this to be a good place to work. I want this to be the best place to work.”
