MuleSoft – Why Work For Us?


Muleys are inspiring, passionate people who never settle. We're driven to challenge the status quo and genuinely enjoy working together. 

 Annual Meetup

Every year, all Muleys across the globe come together for a week of fun team-building activities, learning and aligning on goals for the upcoming year, and letting loose. One of the most exciting parts of Meetup is the Owners Awards, in which we recognize and reward outstanding employees.

   

   

The opportunity

We’re helping our customers create connections in new and profound ways. From how Spotify innovates with microservices, to how UCSF interacts with patients, MuleSoft is embedded in the experiences you have every day.

     

The technology

Every day brings new and exciting technology challenges to solve. We use our own product across the organization and learn whatever technology and tools necessary to get the job done.

     

The culture

From your first interview onward, we focus on performance, not perfection. We’re proud to have signed the Equal Pay Pledge and hire smart people with diverse backgrounds. “Good human” isn’t a throw-away criteria, it’s a core value.

At MuleSoft, you'll work on a globally scalable platform that touches billions of lives through our customers like Coca-Cola, Tesla, and Spotify. We have a collaborative culture, work on small, agile teams, and you'd be pushing code to production within your first week at MuleSoft. Take a look inside what your first 6 months will be like on the team.

Solve major technology problems

The push toward APIs, mobility, SaaS, and microservices results in greater complexity and a growing number of solutions to integrate and manage it all. We bring order to the chaos of a modern IT environment with our hybrid cloud integration platform.

Work on a collaborative team

  • Test-driven development
  • Agile processes with small scrum teams that own critical components of the platform
  • Hackathons and demo culture (we’ve even used MuleSoft to turn a Commodore 64 into an IoT device)
  • Opportunity for growth and moving to different teams

Live at the bleeding edge of technology

  • Use Kubernetes and Docker in production
  • Use cutting edge JavaScript frameworks like React and Node.js
  • Build word-class CI/CD and test automation

    I have been working at MuleSoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been at MuleSoft for quite a while and have spent ~5 years in product management roles here. I've witnessed multiple iterations of the company from the initial "this seems cool" phase, through a few pivots, to the last few years, where we've really found product/market fit and high growth. I will try to provide some perspective here on life from a product management perspective for prospective newcomers.

    One of the best things at MuleSoft is the team. There is a maniacal focus on hiring, culture and people from our CEO. I believe this has a major impact in getting the company where it is today. We have a top notch executive and management team. So, even though we went through some product iterations early on that failed, we had the right people, pivoted, and ended up in a great spot. The team has continued to improve as well, with our new CPO joining last year in February. As we scaled, we found that we needed to bring engineering, product management, UX, and documentation more closely together and under one umbrella. This is an extremely challenging role given the technical nature of our products. But, I believe it's been extremely successful in terms of really upping the bar on strategy, process, experience, culture and hiring.

    Within the product management team specifically, the team itself is really solid. Everyone is great to work with, smart, and hard working. I would work with every one of them again (I don't say this lightly).

    In addition to the people, the company has a very strong vision and wants to tackle a lot of large problems. This is great from a product management perspective:
    - You're encouraged to think big, and tackle big problems.
    - You can drive products with global reach into the 1000+ customer base
    - Opportunity to create greenfield products and major revisions to existing ones
    - Great customers and great sales team
    - Work with new and interesting technology
    - Fast career growth with expanding product portfolio

    You're really CEO of the product (but, don't expect this to be easy).

    Cons

    The good news is that you're CEO of the product. The bad news is: you're CEO of the product. If you are not a good multi-tasker who can simultaneously handle interrupts, demanding customers, design products, hiring, putting processes in place, etc., then MuleSoft is not the place for you. Expect to build a market defining product and all that it entails. You have to like not only the vision/strategy, but building the company, doing project management, helping with marketing materials, etc. I hope this gets easier as the company grows, but under such high growth, it's part and parcel of the job.

    Hiring can sometimes be slow. This is partly because there is a lot going on, but partly because we need to improve our process. (There is significant work happening here)

    Company needs to become more data driven.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in resources, infrastructure, management, etc so things can scale more easily

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MuleSoft in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was sent a link to complete a one-way video interview. The recruiter told me they would get back to me in a few days. They didn't, so I gave up on them and moved on. They brag about wanting A-Players and how they're building an elite team. But they don't get back to people when they say they would? If they can't do something as simple as that, then how can I be sure they're creating a good work environment if they treat candidates poorly? This experience struck me as callow and a waste of time.
