Lead (or Senior) Engineer, Stitch

MongoDB, New York City

MongoDB unleashes the power of software and data for innovators everywhere

MongoDB Stitch is a new backend as a service that lets you directly access MongoDB anywhere and interact with other services such as AWS, Twilio, and general HTTP services. Stitch is backed by a powerful, easy to use rule system called QueryAnywhere, serverless functions, database triggers, and Stitch Mobile Sync.

The Stitch team owns the integration of Stitch with MongoDB Mobile, the SDKs for Stitch (Stitch currently supports SDKs for IOS, Android and Web/Node), and Stitch Mobile Sync. MongoDB Mobile enables developers to store data locally on mobile devices and Stitch Mobile Sync allows that local data to be synchronized with Atlas in realtime. These products are critical to Stitch, empowering developers to deliver apps across multiple platforms.

The Stitch team is based out of New York City. Members of the team are passionate about API design and making developers lives easier and more efficient. The technologies the team works with are Java, Swift, Modern JavaScript, iOS, Android, and more as we introduce more SDKs.

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.
