On the road: Data Minded

by Axel • Jun 07, 2019 in On the road

Data Minded is an innovative data engineering company. Their goal is to solve business-related problems. Not with intuitively, nor with a magic wand but with cold hard stats. And this is what their office is like.

One morning I sat at my desk, wondering where my journey would take me next. I spun the globe that I once got for Christmas. Where was I headed? Capetown, the Maldives, New York? With my eyes closed, I let faith drop my finger on my next destination: Leuven. My hometown. My dreams of an exotic trip were nipped in the bud.

But the disappointment quickly made way for excitement and curiosity: I was going to spend the day at Data Minded, one of our partners.

Data Minded is an innovative data engineering company. Their goal is to solve business-related problems. Not with intuition, nor with a magic wand but with cold hard stats. “Yawn”, you say? You couldn’t be more wrong.



Their "Why go with gut-feeling, when you've got data?" approach has proven successful. Don’t take my word for it. Or theirs. Ask Telenet, Bpost, De Persgroep, Essent, or Vl...“Alright, I get it, Axel, they’re awesome at what they do. But what does their office look like? It must be a meh-inspiring, poorly lit office filled with cubicles, where windows, comfort, and conversations are nothing but a dream, right?”

Again: Wrong.



Their office is fabulous.

It’s an exquisitely designed workspace. The brick walls, the large windows, tasteful kitchen, and spacious meeting rooms make for a highly instagrammable office.

And it has all the comfort and about all the amenities you could wish for. Don’t believe me? How about delicious free coffee, free soda, free fruit, free parking and a view over a park? And don’t get me started on those adjustable coworking desks. You can turn them in standing desks in a matter of seconds. Their basement level meeting rooms are equally well-provisioned.



But what really sets them apart is their culture.

The good people of Data Minded are all about community and exchange. From the minute I set foot in their office, I felt welcome. Beth Kenyon, Maikel Peeters, and their team don’t make a conscious effort to be hospitable, they just are. They fully co-sign to our aim to connect with other professionals and build a community. Everyone at Data Minded is keen on picking brains, exchanging experiences or chat about the new must-watch TV series.

Here’s how Maikel put it:



That’s why we’re happy they’re our partner.

Don’t miss out on Data Minded. If you’re looking to be part of an innovative community or if you need an inspiring workspace in Leuven, they’re the place to be.
