Approves of CEO


The company is constantly getting better. This is happening because most teams are open to feedback and constantly looking for ways to get better. Leadership is continuing to be strong and leading by example. This is the most fun I've had and genuinely excited for the new year.


None of the cons would be a surprise - still a startup so lots of change which isn't bad but hard.

Unlocking data-driven insights is our superpower. We’re invested in building a future where data is the catalyst to remove barriers, build community, level the playing field and cultivate understanding. Regardless of one’s ethnicity, gender, age, identity, religion, national origin, thought, or experience, your story matters, and we believe in turning the power of owning the narrative over to our team members, customers and partners. We are all storytellers.

Our Philosophy 

Our people are the heart and soul of Mixpanel. Our vision is to make our People & Culture the reason why people join and build their careers at Mixpanel over the long term. That is why being responsive to employee needs and feedback and continuously maintaining the health and well-being of our employees and their families is so important to us.

People & Benefits

At Mixpanel, we embody an employee-first mentality, where we strive for growth, progress, and innovation while enabling our employees to live their best lives. We offer a competitive and comprehensive benefits program that empowers flexibility and choice. 

Employee Experience

Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Our vision is to give the storytelling power of data to all. We are invested in building a future where data is the catalyst to remove barriers, build community, level the playing field, and cultivate understanding. In order to achieve our goals, we are committed to developing equitable opportunities that maximize the potential of every employee.

Work-Life Balance

At Mixpanel, we believe in enabling our employees to live their best lives which allows them to bring their whole selves to work. We put Employee Choice First which means you have the power to decide where you do your best work on a daily basis. We have in-office and at-home options and everything in-between.

Employee Resource Groups

In support of our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, Mixpanel has 9 active Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Our ERGs are based on affinity groups and shared experiences. They play a vital role in building and fostering an inclusive workplace. These communities of Mixpanelers act as key culture carriers, facilitating peer support, connection, dialogue, and driving policy change at Mixpanel.


Scale & Complexity 

Mixpanel is powered by a custom distributed database. This system ingests more than 1 Trillion user-generated events every month while ensuring end-to-end latencies of under a minute and queries typically scan more than 1 Quadrillion events over the span of a month. Over the last year, our inbound traffic has doubled. As our existing customers grow in volume and we add new ones, we expect this growth in traffic to continue. 

Product Engineering 

At Mixpanel Engineering, Product, and Design (EPD) work closely in pods to define the product and experiences. We collaborate closely to create a vision for delightful and intuitive UX, then work to deliver the most impactful features for our customers. Engineers are encouraged to own key pieces of the product, maintaining them, and always advocating for improvements to make the user experience even better, adding to our growing shared components library and expanding our design system. 

Our Stack

Across the layers of our stack we write code in Go, TypeScript, Python, and C/C . We build on battle-tested frameworks and technologies including Django, MySQL, Redis, Celery, Web Components, React, Kafka, and Spanner. We place a lot of value on automation and good operational hygiene, relying on best-in-class tooling like Kubernetes (on Google Kubernetes Engine), GitHub Actions, and Argo/ArgoCD to let our developers focus on building, not firefighting.
