Mavenlink provides powerful software and services to help organizations conduct business online. We make it easier to get things done, keep clients happy, and grow profitably.
Mavenlink was founded in 2008 by Ray Grainger, Roger Neel, and Sean Crafts. The cofounders, colleagues at InQuira (and later at Oracle), developed a vision of bringing businesses together through software. Through an early collaboration with Pivotal Labs, we adopted the practice of pair programming, a rigorous, best-practice approach to writing robust software. That practice continues today, enabling rapid development of new features on a reliable code base. The company launched its software to the general public in 2010. In less than five years, we have grown to over 80 "Mavens" serving more than 550,000 users in more than 100 countries worldwide.
We have a complex product and we’ve built a technology stack that allows for continuous deployment with nearly zero downtime. We want you to ship something to production in your first week, if not on your first day. Every Mavenlink engineer majors in code and minors in product, so we all love working through data designs as well as complex user interactions. Whether its through pair-programming, flexible roles, or our obsession for quality test-driven code, our engineers--grasshopper to black belt--are always learning.
“Every engineer has something to learn and something to teach. We
invest in a pairing culture to make our code and our engineers
better.” - Roger Neel, CTO
We challenge the notion that enterprise software can’t be consumer grade. Personalization is the future of product design, and collaboration is not only how our product empowers great business decisions, but it’s also the fabric of our product organization.
"We iterate fast to build elegant solutions that delight our customers.
That daily practice and partnership leads to a powerful product that
we’re excited to share with the world."– Maggie Sheldon, Director of Product
We are passionate about our users, and design at Mavenlink is all about thinking differently. We take very complex business processes and distill them down to something meaningful for the user, while at the same time providing the business with key metrics that define success.
“Enterprise software is the next frontier for user experience design.
Businesses are clamoring for consumer-grade UX.” – Tricia Spoonts, Lead UI/UX Designer
