MongoDB is growing rapidly and seeking a Data Platform Engineer to be a key contributor to the overall internal data platform at MongoDB.  You will design and build a scalable data driven platform to help drive MongoDB’s growth as a product and as a company, while also taking on complex platform problems with the goal of making our platform more scalable, reliable, and robust.

As a Data Platform Engineer, you will:

  • Build a large-scale batch and real-time platform that will make data pipelines seamless and scalable
  • Help drive best practices in continuous integration and delivery
  • Help drive optimization, testing, and tooling to improve data platform quality
  • Collaborate with other software engineers, machine learning experts, and stakeholders, taking learning and leadership opportunities that will arise every single day

Success Measures

  • In three months you will have familiarized yourself with much of our data platform, be making regular contributions to our codebase, will be collaborating regularly with stakeholders to widen your knowledge and helping to resolve incidents and respond to user requests
  • In six months you will have successfully investigated, scoped, executed, and documented a small to medium sized project and worked with stakeholders to make sure their data needs are satisfied by implementing improvements to our platform
  • In a year you will have become the key person for several projects within the team and will have contributed to the the data platform’s roadmap. You will have made several sizable contributions to the project and are regularly looking to improve the overall stability and scalability of the architecture

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.
