Being a Muley is an endearing term that many MuleSoft employees, Community leaders, and members of our ecosystem refer to themselves as when someone asks: who are you in the Salesforce world? Many have asked “What does it mean to be a Muley?” – well, we’re here to answer that question!

Who are Muleys?

Muleys are individuals passionate about the power of MuleSoft, dedicated to the success of the MuleSoft Community, and motivated to enable as many others as possible to learn or skill up with MuleSoft’s integration and automation tool kits. Muleys are located all over the world, range from developers to C-levels and everyone in-between, and have a variety of hands-on experience. What all Muleys have in common is they love connecting, sharing their MuleSoft knowledge, and giving back to their local communities.
