Our founders over time were consistently running into the same problem with databases, one of the biggest problems being scalability. When they set out to solve this problem, MongoDB was born. Stemming from the word "humongous" and "DB" for database, MongoDB allows the most sophisticated cutting-edge startups to the world's largest corporations to build never before possible applications that scale. With offices across North America, Europe, and Asia, we are looking for talent around the globe. 


MongoDB has more than 1,000 technology, services, and reseller partners, including global brands such as Amazon, IBM, Informatica, Intel, Microsoft, Rackspace, QlikView, Red Hat, VMware and numerous other organizations worldwide. It’s easy to find a partner that works with MongoDB.


MongoDB has raised $311 million from Altimeter Capital, Fidelity Investments, Flybridge Capital Partners, Goldman Sachs, In-Q-Tel, Intel Capital, NEA, Red Hat,, Sequoia Capital, T. Rowe Price, and Union Square Ventures.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time (More than a year)


    Well managed Company that fully appreciates, recognizes and rewards its employees accordingly. Leadership has a clear vision and the discipline and passion to see it to fruition driven by absolute success of the Company not just for it's backers but also for the love of the product and genuine drive to see its employees succeed and enjoy the fruits of their labor. If you want to work hard and have fun with a lot of smart and grounded team, MongoDB is where you want to be!


    None other than traffic in my commute but well worth it given all the possibilities. I say None because I'm a firm believer in "things happen for a reason". So you "learn, move on and improve along the way".

    I applied online. I interviewed at MongoDB.


    Stopped by for what was supposed to be strictly an informal chat about the position and my background. Sat down and found out I was about to go through a 1-hour test by the head of documentation and education. At the end of the hour, the interviewer takes off abruptly and asks me to log out of my borrowed computer and find my way out. There is a thesaurus of terms for people like this.
