I just installed MATE on 16.04 and I would like to move the maximize, minimize and close buttons to the left, as I am used to this placement. I can't seem to find this sort of option in the MATE Control Center.

You can use MATE Tweak in System > Preferences > Look and Feel

enter image description here

Under Windows, select Contemporary (Left)

enter image description here

Placement will change instantly (I also like the buttons on the left).

Use the dconf editor which should be provided. Applications > System Tools > dconf Editor. Select org > mate > marco > general > button-layout > menu:minimize,maximize,close for right side, minimize,maximize,close:menu for left side. You can also add spacer to separate any of the buttons.
