Strategic Alliance Manager

| Greater Boston Area
IT and Business leaders have a problem. The imbalance between the business’ application requirements and IT’s ability to meet their needs is so great they have to take a different approach. They must collaborate. They must be agile. They must empower the business to participate in its own rescue. Said differently, they need help transforming their enterprise into a high-performance provider of solutions, and Mendix has the people, domain expertise and technology platform to bring the groups together for success.
Are you maniacally focused on helping customers achieve meaningful business outcomes through technology? Are you best of breed?

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As the first US employee of Mendix back in 2008, I started our Boston office with Derek Roos and have held every sales role since then. After we signed our first US client in 2008, I became a commercial account executive, and then led our Global Inside sales team until 2015. For the past 2 years I have focused on our most Strategic accounts.
