Intelligent Innovation

Mindjet – Why Work For Us?


Mindjet provides the first software platform to drive repeatable business innovation, employee engagement, and productivity. Our purpose-driven innovation and mind mapping products, SpigitEngage and MindManager, are used by millions of individual and enterprise customers, including over 83% of the Fortune 100TM. 

We enable the world’s leading brands to build and manage innovation programs with crowdsourcing, mind mapping, big data analytics, and game mechanics, to surface and develop the best ideas and bring them to market. Mindjet is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices throughout the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan, and Australia.


Imagine Success Every Day

Great things happen when talent and preparation combine. We’re a group of sharp, diverse thinkers who believe in an endgame of facilitated change through exceptional software -- and breaking convention to get there. After all, seeing in new ways is the only path to imaginative success, and that means having fun while doing what you do best.

Balanced, enterprising, spirited: how we work reflects our company’s mission to innovate and succeed collectively.


We have a strong belief in maintaining a work/life balance. With our waterfront offices at the beautiful Levi’s Plaza, coming to work is a daily pleasure. Have lunch outside in the pastoral park or choose from a variety of great restaurants just steps away, including access to the Levi’s café. Mindjet also offers daily breakfast options, and caters lunch three days a week for employees.


Aside from generous health, vision, dental, and commuter benefits, our employees enjoy weekly yoga classes and special membership offers from the Bay Club, located just one block away.


Break time can mean a game of ping-pong or darts, enjoying the office wine and cheese happy hour, or racing a co-worker to the top of Coit Tower at lunch. Keeping work creative and dynamic means taking time out to recharge perspective, and with twelve paid company holidays (in addition to standard employee PTO) employees have the time to step away and enjoy life.

    I have been working at Mindjet full-time for more than a year


    Office culture, good people, competitive benefits, decent amount autonomy allowed by management in your work. Nice perks like free lunches, coffee and snacks, good work/life balance, and an excellent office location. Actual revenue and recognized products add some stability to working at a pre-IPO tech company.


    Slow to backfill needed positions (understandable to limit spending, I guess), internal conflicts and grandstanding in management after acquiring Spigit, somewhat limited potential for professional growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on making products better and more appealing to a wider audience. Don't forget about MindManager, and drive hard to bring it up to speed with modern apps.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Mindjet in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    You would get a phone interview at first, then you have to take a practical test, about 3-4 hours. The testing computer is located in the middle of the office while everybody is working regularly. Interviewers have remote access to it. After you are finished, the interviewers see if you complete expectations, then you will go out for lunch with them. If you are not, then shake hands and never hear from them anymore.
