MongoDB was founded in 2007 by the people behind DoubleClick, ShopWiki and Gilt Groupe. At DoubleClick, the site could never be down and there were daily challenges with processing, storing, and scaling data, forcing them to write their own software to handle specific problems. It was in these trenches that the team had the insight for MongoDB. They asked themselves, “What do we wish we had while at DoubleClick?”

I have been working at MongoDB full-time (Less than a year)
massive market with huge pain, therefore poised for transition rock solid core db technology differentiated management offering (commercial) is coming together and will propel further acceleration past the also-rans (DataStax, CouchBase, etc.) strong exec leadership- truly amazing to see the transformation that has occurred this year sales results are through the roof
super intense pace no place to hide (not necessarily a bad thing, actually) work/life balance is not a top priority
Advice to Management
keep up the great work on transforming this co. from good to great
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MongoDB (New York, NY).
First round is a behavioral screen by the recruiter. Second round is a technical phone screen. Third round is on site. One of my on-site interviewers was the CTO, which was cool. The questions were on the easy side compared to Google, Facebook, etc. Here's where it gets weird: I asked some of my interviewers a standard question about work-life balance. After my last interview, the recruiter confronted me about those questions point blank. Which means that: a. They documented the questions I asked my interviewers. b. They consider questions about work-life balance a red flag. That's a red flag about Mongo, if you ask me. I ended up accepting an offer from a larger company with better salary and work-life balance.
