Mendix Opens New Corporate Headquarters to Foster Growth and Innovation
Expands Boston Footprint with New 30,000 Square-Foot Office in the Seaport
BOSTON – November 15, 2018 – Mendix, a company transforming the world of legacy software development by bringing business and IT together to rapidly and collaboratively build robust and modern applications for the enterprise, today announced the opening of their new corporate headquarters at 22 Boston Wharf Road in Boston’s ever-growing Seaport neighborhood. With the move, Mendix quintuples its local footprint, from a 6,000-square-foot office to a 30,000-square-foot tech hub.
“Our new headquarters allows us to capitalize on the momentum we have built as a leading global technology company and we look forward to seeing increased productivity as we expand our team here in Boston,” said Derek Roos, founder and CEO of Mendix. “For Mendix, the decision to move our headquarters and expand our Boston footprint was about creating a phenomenal work environment for our Boston-area employees, while ensuring continual investment in the community and the exceptional local talent pool.”
Mendix’s corporate expansion is the latest news in an already momentous year for the growing company. In August, Mendix announced that it had been acquired by Siemens, Europe’s largest industrial manufacturing company with $95B annual revenue and 380,000 global employees, for $730 million. Siemens is making a significant multi-year investment to accelerate R&D innovation and global footprint of Mendix for organic business and verticals, fueling faster go-to-market expansion. Mendix is projected to increase its number of employees by 45% over the coming year.
“The Siemens acquisition opens tremendous new opportunities for Mendix to leverage Siemens’ infrastructure and continue to transform IT and business technology,” said Roos. “Now, as a Siemens company, we have huge worldwide winds behind our sails, and an immense horizon ahead. Our top priority is accelerating our leadership in the low-code category through increased investment in R&D and geographical expansion to enable faster innovation, greater reach, and even more valuable customer service for our clients.”
In addition to the Siemens acquisition, Mendix announced earlier this year that it was named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service (2018) and Mobile App Development Platforms. The company also released the first AI-assisted low-code application development platform and continues to be the only low-code platform to leverage containerization as a core technology enabling enterprises the flexibility to run their apps on any Cloud Foundry or Docker-based environment, including Kubernetes, IBM Cloud, SAP Cloud Platform and Pivotal.
Mendix continues to scale globally and 2019 promises to be a year of exciting announcements, with Mendix World coming back bigger and better than ever with over 4,000 planned attendees at the Rotterdam event in the spring.
