Senior Strategic Consultant (EMEA)

MongoDB, London

MongoDB unleashes the power of software and data for innovators everywhere

The MongoDB Strategic Consultant is a technical, customer-facing role that supports the realization of high-priority customer initiatives and drives a multitude of MongoDB adoption scenarios - from building new solutions to modernizing legacy applications or migrating to the cloud.

Our Strategic Consultants help answer big questions that CIOs and other IT leaders have when using MongoDB technologies to unlock the power of their data, such as

  • How do I maximize my return on investment in MongoDB? Where do I start? How do I make appropriate changes at the appropriate times to achieve my objectives for the business?

  • How can my team understand quickly which apps / use cases are a good fit for MongoDB (and which ones are not)?

  • We have a lot of data in different systems, teams, silos. How do we leverage that data to serve new uses cases in front of us?

  • How do I get my team to adopt the cloud in a safe and efficient way?

  • How do I ensure that my team has the skills needed to develop and deploy MongoDB applications?  How do we scale my team’s knowledge and efficiency? How do we provide governance and technical design authority?  How do we build a MongoDB centre of excellence?

MongoDB Strategic Consultants advise holistically on the people, process and technology aspects of MongoDB adoption to ensure that organizations get the best out of MongoDB.

About MongoDB

Our Story

MongoDB was founded in 2007 by Dwight Merriman, Eliot Horowitz and Kevin Ryan – the team behind DoubleClick.

At the Internet advertising company DoubleClick (now owned by Google), the team developed and used many custom data stores to work around the shortcomings of existing databases. The business served 400,000 ads per second, but often struggled with both scalability and agility. Frustrated, the team was inspired to create a database that tackled the challenges it faced at DoubleClick.

MongoDB is the leading modern, general purpose database platform, designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and the applications they build. Headquartered in New York, with offices across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, we are close to where you do business. MongoDB has more than 4,300 customers in over 85 countries, including more than half of the global Fortune 100. The MongoDB database platform has been downloaded over 30 million times and there have been more than 730,000 MongoDB University registrations.
