UK Sales Leader

Mendix, London

We help enterprises achieve their digital goals

IT and Business leaders have a problem. The imbalance between the business’ application requirements and IT’s ability to meet their needs is so great they have to take a different approach. They must collaborate. They must be agile. They must empower the business to participate in its own rescue. Said differently, they need help transforming their enterprise into a high performance provider of solutions, and  Mendix[EE1]  has the people, domain expertise and technology platform to bring the groups together for success.
