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.
