I have been working at Mendix full-time (More than a year)
-Mendix has some of the most intelligent people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. I was shocked to realize how open upper management is to coach and mentor newer employees, even ones that are not in their department whatsoever. You do have to feel comfortable skipping rank or reaching out to people outside of your direct reports to progress; theres nothing that really obstructs you from doing so.
-Great talent even at the lowest rungs on the ladder make it difficult to quickly get promoted, but the compensation is much higher than other companies in the area (I believe) which keeps talent in house.
-Without a background in software development or a few years of selling platforms to Fortune 2000 IT leadership, it is quite challenging to feel confident with the message. Enablement opportunities are limitless (again, you have to be someone who is good at taking it upon yourself to learn).
-Siemens acquisition has caused a bit of shuffle and lack of clarity at times.
-Promotion track can be unclear and jump from individual contributor to leadership/more prestigious individual contributor is quite large. However with the rapid growth it's likely to open up more stepping stone roles toward leadership.
Advice to Management
Focus on ways to create new opportunities and challenges for people passed their curve in initial role if not already promoted. We have some very smart people, but it can be difficult to see a clear path for personal growth now that we are not a small company, nor a large corporation. My suggestion would be to strengthen an ESPP or Share Matching benefit to non senior-level management to avoid employee attrition.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mendix (Boston, MA).
I was contacted by my recruiter first and had one in person interview with the Program Manager first and then the VP of Demand Gen. It lasted about an hour as they were on tight schedule.
