About MarkLogic

Big Data is gaining a lot of attention around the world, but the phrase itself can be a misnomer. Too often, conversations focus on the “Big,” when the real impact in fact comes from the “Data.”

Since MarkLogic was founded in 2001, we have focused on building a database and applications that enable our customers to capture more data, and do more with it. We give our customers an unmatched competitive edge through game-changing technology. We’ve set new standards in scalability, enterprise-readiness, time to value, and innovation.

The world is seeing an explosion in data, including user-generated content, machine-generated content, aggregation of highly structured heterogeneous data sources (patient records, insurance claims, mortgage documents, etc.), raw data, social media, log files, and sensor data, among others. Relational databases were not designed – and are simply not able – to deal with this variety and complexity in real-time. At MarkLogic we are experts at this. We’ve been doing it for a decade.

Some businesses, organizations, and agencies are missing out on a huge opportunity. Our customers are not. The Federal Aviation Administration depends on MarkLogic as the backbone of its Emergency Operations Network. Conde Nast is building new applications in weeks. CQ Roll Call puts up to date information about government-in-action at the fingertips of its subscribers. These are just a few MarkLogic customers who are revolutionizing the industry and the public sector with Big Data Applications. Become one of them. Transform your organization and outpace your competition with MarkLogic.

MarkLogic is headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Chicago, Washington D.C., New York, London, Frankfurt, Utrecht, and Tokyo.


Next generation Big Data requires a next generation database. Be part of something big.

For more than a decade, MarkLogic has delivered a powerful and trusted Enterprise NoSQL database that enables organizations to turn all data into valuable and actionable information.

The MarkLogic team is passionate about building technology that makes a difference in the lives of people throughout the world everyday. What’s more, the company is filled with industry experts focused on taking our next generation database to next generation customers. Our agile technology powers more than 500 of the world’s most critical Big Data applications that drive revenue, streamline operations, manage risk and make the world safer.

Our Environment

Whether it’s our waterfront headquarters in San Carlos, our midtown office in New York City or our centrally located offices in Washington D.C., London, Tokyo and Frankfurt, we’ve built dynamic and social environments people want to work in, with perks that make building the only Enterprise NoSQL database a lot more fun: catered lunches, kitchens stocked full of snacks and specialty beverages, and regular end-of-the-week parties.

    Principal Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Carlos, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Carlos, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at MarkLogic in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager emailed to schedule a phone screen for next week.
    After a brief conversation an onsite interview was scheduled. Manager asked me to read
    a 300 page NoSQL for Dummies written by MarkLogic and an 80 page white paper.
    I received an email from HR asking I complete an application, background check release and NDA
    which I felt was premature before arriving for the first on site interview.
    Arrived at MarkLogic HQ without any problems since building is visible from CA freeway 101.
    I was told there are over 100 employees at HQ but I only saw 7 including the 4 directors who interviewed me that day. The office was dead quiet. We exchanged business cards and the
    hiring manager asked if my business card was still current implying did I still work there?

    The next stage would have been my giving a sales presentation but someone with MarkLogic hands on experience was chosen over me. I asked HR if other candidates were also asked to provide
    a completed application, NDA and permission to do a background check.
    No response ever received.

Over thousands of years, history has produced an almost inconceivable amount of data - rich with meaning and possibility and potential but nearly impossible to harness. That is what spurred the idea that became MarkLogic.

How do you search trillions of data elements and find exactly what you are looking for? How do you pinpoint something remarkable, perhaps serendipitous, that you may never have even thought to look for? How do you find patterns in chaos? A new generation database is the answer.

MarkLogic, however, is more than a new generation technology; we are a... More
