Product Analyst at Mendix
At Mendix, we help our users and customers bring their ideas to outcomes.
Not only by delivering the best low code platform to them, but also by guiding them in the best ways to use our platform in the most effective and efficient way.
Improving our product means we need to understand how our product is actually being used by our users and customers, how well do (new) features perform, what are opportunities for improvement based on that.
Questions around these topics do constantly live in the heads of our product teams and product managers who are responsible for growing the happy userbase and customers of our platform.
Besides our research teams who focus on qualitative user research, the product analytics team at Mendix is taking the quantitative angle.
We are responsible for creating and sharing product insights to support and guide those teams and product managers in making the right decisions, which are based on facts and data coming from our platform.
