We make real what matters
Siemens Digital Industries is an innovation and technology leader in industrial automation and digitization. We connect the virtual and the real world, making life and work easier, faster and more efficient.

The role is for Mendix, which is part of Siemens Digital Industries since 2018.

Our goal is simply to create the future of software development.
Mendix accelerates the digital transformation by bridging the gap between business and IT. Mendix provides a platform and approach that helps enterprises innovate and digitally transform their businesses and industries. Mendix just opened up an office in Germany last year to cover the DACH region. As a next step we are now ready to kick start the Swiss market and want to hire an Enterprise Account Executive.
