Careers at MuleSoft

Mission

MuleSoft develops and sells a range of software products for commercial and institutional customers across multiple sectors that are designed to make the integration processes of its customers more efficient and accessible.

History

MuleSoft was founded in 2006 by Ross Mason (“Mason”) and Dave Rosenberg. The Company evolved out of a short string of text written by Mason, that led to the development of the Company’s core concept: that it is more efficient to assemble and configure components effectively than to write custom code for each individual case. The Company used the mule as its inspiration in reference to the thankless and understated role of software integration in modern business.

MuleSoft received $4 million in seed funding in 2006 to develop its platform. The Company has since raised $259 million in total from 14 investors in seven rounds of funding. The Company’s investors include Cisco Investments, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and New Enterprise Associates. MuleSoft has been recognised for its achievements, receiving a number of awards, including from the Tech and Innovation Awards, JMP Securities, Deloitte Technology Fast 500, and BPTW.

MuleSoft has developed a broad portfolio of products and ancillary services, serving high-profile customers across multiple industries through an international network of offices spanning the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe. The Company’s Series G round of funding, led by Salesforce Ventures, raised $128 million at a company valuation of approximately $1.5 billion.

Customer Relationships

MuleSoft provides a number of products to customers on a self-service basis, with customers able to register a user account, access products, manage account details, and make payments online via the MuleSoft website, without interacting directly with members of the Company’s sales personnel.

The Company also owns and leases a number of properties, principally its network of 13 offices across the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific, including locations in London, Amsterdam, Washington, Paris, Hong Kong, and Sydney.

Cost Structure

MuleSoft incurs costs in relation to the development of its technology and digital platforms, the maintenance of its IT and communications infrastructure, the operation of its sales and support units, the management of its partnerships, and the retention of its personnel.

Revenue Streams

MuleSoft primarily generates revenue through the sale of subscriptions to its software platform and software products, and related services. This includes:

  • Revenue derived from subscriptions to its flagship enterprise service bus product;
  • Revenue derived from subscriptions to its API gateway and Anypoint API management platform; and
  • Revenue derived from its provision of professionals services, such as consulting and training.

MuleSoft is not a publicly-listed company and therefore does not disclose its financial accounts and performance figure on its website. The Company, however, has stated that in 2015 it generated revenue in excess of $100 million, representing an 92% growth in revenue year on year.
