MongoDB – Why Work For Us?


What on Earth is MongoDB? A diverse collection of dreamers and doers who share a relentless passion for creativity. We eagerly and expertly pursue new opportunities and markets through innovation and disruption. We have a wicked pioneering spirit--always ready to forge new paths and take smart risks. And we do it all very, very well.


We achieve this by bringing together a distinctive mix of diverse skills, experiences, and backgrounds. We work as a team--creating an open forum for innovative thought, candid discussion, and mutual respect. But in the end, we always put commitment over consensus, and value excellence in all its wonderful forms. 


We build MongoDB and the drivers and sell software and services to make the lives of developers easier. We also run MongoDB University and sponsor the community, hosting MongoDB World and MongoDB Days all over the globe. With offices across North America, Europe, and Asia, we are close to where you create. 


Personal progress is one of our core beliefs, and we have the data to back that up--10% of the company was promoted last year. Join our team and help us accomplish the amazing, again and again. We are fearless in our innovation. Think what we can do for your career. 


If you love to build, innovate, work with an amazing team, and bask in the glory of mind-blowing achievement, you've come to the right place. MongoDB is built for that kind of show-stopping success. 


The database market is massive and ripe for the picking--estimated at $36B and growing 9% every year. Meanwhile, software development is radically changing--it's more agile, scalable, and cloud is the new frontier. 


The beauty to our brains. Being at the forefront of the MongoDB movement, they are our storytellers creating the opportunity to connect MongoDB with prospects, users, and community members, spreading the word and sharing the wealth.

Professional Services

Ensuring seamless service delivery, our expert success team works closely with our customers on adoption, satisfaction, and renewals, making it easier to get business up and running on MongoDB.

Change the Ratio

MongoDB is committed to creating opportunities for women in technology by changing the ratio. Through a number of initiatives and partnerships, we aim to encourage diversity, deliver education, and provide inspiration to women and the transgender community. 

Diversity Scholarships

We invite underrepresented groups in technology to attend our conferences through the Diversity Scholarship for events. 

Women and Transcoders 

Our goal is to provide opportunities for women and transcoders to network and build relationships at our events. The Women and Trans Coders Lounge is a space for female-identifying coders at MongoDB World featuring lightning talks by female MongoDB engineers, roundtable discussions, networking and social events. 

Computer Science for All Initiative

We work with teachers throughout the summer to help them learn and understand programming languages and other skills to ultimately take back to their students come the fall.

Become a Part of the Next Generation of MongoDB

Our interns are put to the test on work that matters, working on teams and projects that will be used by thousands of developers and organizations across the world.

Our summer program is comprehensive and interactive - there's no such thing as sitting behind a desk all day. We have social outings and an intern speaker series which includes some of the most significant and important people in tech today.

We are able to provide a life experience outside of the professional environment, making our interns not only better software engineers but also more informed citizens of the world.

It's all About Location(s)

Sure we have offices and employees located in three of the world's four hemispheres, but what tech giant doesn't? Is that really a differentiator anymore? 

At MongoDB, it's all about expansion. Since founded in 2007, we have opened 20 office locations worldwide, and that number will continue to increase for three key reasons:  

Our global presence is massive

The MongoDB Community has had at least one registration from every single country in the world. 

Our customer base is impressive

With more than half of the Fortune 100 rely on our software, we have to be everywhere they are.

We're hiring like crazy

Supporting our users and customers takes a lot of manpower, as does tapping into new markets. We need teams in every corner of the earth to help us do our thing, and do it well.
