Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is open, positive, fun and collaborative. People are always willing to lend a hand. We have a strong connection between our Dutch and American cultures between offices and celebrate "Vrijimbo" each Friday which stands for happy hour.

Evan Schwartz

Innovation Specialist

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

People love to throw around buzzwords like microservices, blockchain, IoT, and RAD - but don't always know the benefits, the challenges, and how to leverage those technologies for their existing businesses. As the worldwide experts in RAD, we help customers understand how these cutting edge technologies are applicable, and how and when to use them.

Director of Expert Services

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As the first US employee of Mendix back in 2008, I started our Boston office with Derek Roos and have held every sales role since then. After we signed our first US client in 2008, I became a commercial account executive, and then led our Global Inside sales team until 2015. For the past 2 years I have focused on our most Strategic accounts.

Vincent De La Mar

Strategic Accounts Director

We founded Mendix with a mission to create a whole new way for organizations to bridge the gap between Business and IT. We pioneered the Low Code Application Development space and aim to be the long-term market- and innovation leader in a strategic, multi-billion-dollar software category.

Derek Roos

CEO and Founder

My team is a good mix of technical aptitude, sales acumen, and drive to move the company forward. The people on my team that are most successful are those that have a nonstop desire to learn more, build strong relationships with our customers, and want to share in the growth and successes of the broader team! One team, one dream!
