Jobs at Mimecast
Chief Executive Officer
Peter Bauer is the CEO, Cofounder and a Board Member at Mimecast, which he launched in 2003, with CTO and fellow Cofounder, Neil Murray.
He is the visionary behind Mimecast’s product and SaaS platform strategy, which focuses on reducing risk and making email safer for business, utilizing a pure Cloud delivery mechanism and an intuitive user experience, suited to the way people interact with email today.
This combination of next generation technology, a unified platform, and seamless integration with existing email systems, is the driving force behind Mimecast’s success in its mission to transform the way people work amidst today’s ever changing threat landscape.
Peter was born and raised in South Africa, trained as a Microsoft systems engineer, and began working with corporate messaging systems in the mid 1990’s. He moved to the UK where Mimecast was founded, and then moved once more, arriving in Boston, Massachusetts in 2011, in order to lead Mimecast’s aggressive push into North America. Since that time, Mimecast has been one of the strongest performers in its market segment in terms of customer acquisition and top line growth, making Peter one of only a handful of CEO’s to have led a pure SaaS company for over 10 years while acquiring well over 10,000 customers worldwide.
Cheif Technology Officer

Today he oversees the management and development of our cloud and services platform and sets out the overall technical vision and strategy for the service.
Before Mimecast, Neil was the CTO of Global Technology Services, a South African, JSE-listed provider of business information solutions, which had bought Pro Solutions, a software development company he helped found in the early nineties.
