What they are looking for

At Aplo they are looking for people who have a strong inbuilt sense of ownership. People who can not only learn something new, but quickly put it into practice. And people who balance their drive for high-performance with being supportive of those around them.

Good to know

When they started Aplo back in 2019, it was based on two clear beliefs.

1️⃣ First, that in amongst the scams and subterfuge that had become prevalent in the cryptocurrency space, there was an opportunity for a trusted player.

2️⃣ Second, that institutional investors badly needed a way to legitimately access this new financial opportunity, and required a crypto-native partner to work with.

So far, both have proven to be true.

🚀 They are now on the path to building a successful company, with a product that their customers love. It’s led them to two funding rounds in two years, and impressive growth.
