Mendix is on a mission to enable anyone in any organization – from the marketing coordinator to the software developer to the CEO – to create things that are transformational for their company.  We are fundamentally reinventing the way applications are created and we’re reinventing the future of software development.  Sounds ambitious, right?  We agree.

Not to brag, but nearly 4,000 organizations worldwide, including KLM, Medtronic, Merck, and Philips, rely on Mendix to build web and mobile applications.  Thousands of our customers use our platform to delight their clients and empower their employees. It’s no surprise that we’re a recognized Leader by Gartner and Forrester in a red-hot market expected to exceed $21 billion by 2022.  Ok, maybe we did want to brag a little.  But we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished…and…we’re humble enough to admit that we need you to make us even more effective.

Data Hub Group:

In the Data Hub group we’re building a product that all revolves around data as well: an innovative low-code data integration platform. The Data Hub product aims to solve an important challenge for businesses, enabling their people to take the data that they have available across their company and use it effectively. Data Hub takes on the challenge of getting rid of the high amount of friction that usually exists when trying to find and use data, by offering a solution that simplifies this process from start to finish. 

While Data Hub is part of the larger Mendix platform, we’re organized as a separate product unit that operates as autonomous as possible. As we’ve just released the 1st version of our product, we’re still very much in an entrepreneurial mode with a strong focus on innovation & growth. We recognize the importance of a strong analytics foundation for our success and are therefore looking for a strong addition of our product leadership team.  

You’ll be working with developers, designers, product managers, user researchers and other stakeholders to optimize decision making based on data.

Analytics Center of Excellence:

While being part of the Data Hub team, Mendix also has a centralized Analytics Center of Excellence that will support you to reach your goals. The Analytics Center of Excellence owns the management of centralized analytics infrastructure and brings together a group of data analysts across the company to share knowledge and best-practices. 

Our Guiding Principles

While we live on different continents, speak different languages, and work on different things, we are bound by our “MendixBlue” guiding principles.  Being “MendixBlue” means that you live the culture, and you consistently improve it as we grow.  It’s kind of a big deal.

We put the customer first.  Without our customers, we have no business.  So, if you act in the best interest of our customers, always…you belong here.

We think big. We work to have a meaningful, lasting impact on the world.  So, if you aim high and think long term…you belong here.

We innovate.  We want to be what happens next.  So, if you ask “what if?” and work to find a way or make one…you belong here. 

We nurture talent.  We look, not just at the sum of what an individual has done, but at the potential of who they can be.  So, if you’re up for learning from your failures…you belong here.

We hear every voice.  Inflated egos don’t last here, humility does.  So, if you share credit and ensure that the best ideas win – regardless of who they come from…you belong here.

We own it.  If something needs doing, we do it. So, if you focus on the outcome, and take initiative to get it done…you belong here.

We have fun.  We use laughter as a common language.  We can ask for help and we’re happy to give it.  So, if you find joy and purpose in what you do…you belong here.
