Why choose Mintel?

Empowered, entrepreneurial teams

At Mintel, “agile” isn’t something we do, it’s something we are. Our process empowers individuals and teams to iterate towards the right solutions for our clients, without overbearing management or politics. Our culture fosters entrepreneurial spirit, and by getting an insight into all areas of our business you’ll build a broad foundation for your career.

Award-winning agile workspace

Whether it’s collaborating with your team in our open workspace, finding a more casual pace in the cafe, or retreating to the zen room for quiet focus, Mintel’s flexible office space has an environment to suit your needs – that’s why Crain’s Chicago Business listed us as having one of the coolest offices in Chicago.

Small-company culture, big-company benefits

While Mintel retains its friendly, open feel from its early days as a newcomer to Chicago, our size offers the kind of benefits you won’t find at a startup – job security, 401k matching, excellent health insurance and an attitude to work-life balance that reflects our European roots – including one of the most generous vacation policies in town.

Our technology

Build Market Intelligence websites for users across the globe with Python and Django

Our team is responsible for building Mintel’s client-facing web tools. You’ll develop new features for users in many of the largest Consumer Packaged Goods, Financial Services, Advertising and Academic institutions in the world.

Transform data into insight with Solr, MariaDB and pandas

At Mintel, developers are exposed to the full development stack and data processing is no exception. As a market research company data is our bread and butter, and our expertise in managing ever-growing datasets is one of the reasons our software products lead the industry.

Enhance our research with the power of scikit-learn and nltk

Big Data will play a key part in the future of market research, and Mintel is already leveraging technologies like machine learning and natural language processing to analyze consumer behavior.

Our Team

Hear from some of our team on why they like working for Mintel:

​"Mintel allows developers to get creative. We are exposed to the entire pipeline, which gives us the opportunity to possibly find a more efficient way to store data and display it, something we'd never get focusing on one skill. It is harder sometimes, but it makes us better."
Charles Lu, Software Developer

"Mintel is a place that really allows you to learn and grow. I’m always being encouraged to go out of my comfort zone and try something new. Whether it’s experimenting with a new technology to see if it will work for us, or through the many educational lunches, there’s always something new here."
Jackson Toomey, Software Developer

"Since starting I've never felt like I haven't had the support of my team and department. This has helped drive development in character, career goals, along with technical skills."
David Rowe, Software Developer
