Brian Costain
Senior Customer Success Manager

“Professionally speaking, the AppNeta environment is one that keeps me engaged and forces me to perpetually learn. I've gone from making 100+ cold-calls per day with a product demo as my endgame to being responsible for the maintenance of the contracts of 100+ customers.

On a personal note, it's been my entire post-college working life, and I've made great friends and soaked up as much as possible from their successes. The company has always respected work/life balance, and I'm happy to have been able to take time off without worrying about inconveniencing anyone.

Ultimately, I'm thankful that I've had the opportunity to work under management that has expertly navigated the growth process. Things move quickly in technology, and our executive team has done a tremendous job of putting us in a position to continually succeed.”
