Lead Mobile Engineer, Cloud Services, 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 S3, SES, GitHub, and Twilio. Stitch is backed by declarative rules and functions, that create your code that we run for you.

The Stitch Mobile team will own the integration of Stitch with MongoDB Mobile as well as all of the SDKs for Stitch (Stitch currently supports SDKs for IOS, Android and Web/Node). The mobile MongoDB effort will allow developers to have a local instance of MongoDB on their mobile devices and get the same API they expect to use with MongoDB anywhere else within the mobile SDKs. These SDKs are critical to Stitch, allowing developers to deliver the same app across multiple platforms.

The Stitch team is entirely based out of New York City. Members of the team are passionate about API design, the mobile platforms space, and making developers lives easier and more efficient. The technologies the team works with are Swift, Java, JavaScript (ES6/Flow), iOS, Android, and more to come.

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.
