Working in a team of Engineers, Data Scientists and UX Designers, this was big task to crack..— Robbertjan Kalff, VP Product for Online Communities
Senior Front End Developer
I joined Mendeley because there was a sense of purpose here.
I’ve worked as a developer for most of my career. In my previous roles the tech was always interesting but at Mendeley what you are doing is different. There is a real sense of purpose here. People want to use the products and tech you are working on. There’s a constant feedback loop– people care. That’s also true internally. We develop products to meet quality standards. There is more time to think about the solution, and time to test and ensure quality.
A key project which I have worked on is Mendeley Web Importer. We developed a tool which allows researchers to import papers, web pages and other docs direct to their research library from academic databases and search engines. As a team we identified that this was a key need for our users and we worked together to build the solution. As developers we are respected, trusted and given the time to get it right. There was no barrier to doing this project - I don’t think this would happen at start-up organisation.
