GIANT Stories at MongoDB

Hacking For Single Mothers And Kids In Poverty

One of MongoDB's core values is "Build Together," and that value is one that reaches outside the company too. We saw that value embodied in the Femisphere Codeswitch, which is one of the many reasons we were proud sponsors of the event that brought single mothers and coders together to build apps.

Women's History Month: Scaling Your Career

A lot has changed in the last 100 years since women first had a chance to vote in the United States. But new major issues have risen for women: climbing the career ladder, work-life balance, and gender bias to name a few. With Women's History Month occurring this month, we at MongoDB organized our first-ever event, co-hosted by the MongoDB's Women's Group, bringing together women and allies from the tech industry to discuss ways women can grow their careers.

Meet Some of MongoDB's Influential Female Leaders

In celebration of International Women's Day, we are highlighting some of our most influential leaders at MongoDB and how they've grown at the company. According to Fairygodboss, promoting more women into leadership positions is one of the top things employers can do to make their female employees stay.

At MongoDB, we invest in our employees' professional growth to enable them to become leaders in their roles while pursuing their passions. A few of our leaders developed an internal Underrepresented People of Color Network, while others created a mentorship group to provide management and productivity tips. We try to empower our employees to lead in their own ways and give them the freedom to create programs where they feel they are lacking.

Culture

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to re-enter the workplace after years of taking a break? Many people who experience a long gap in their resume are nervous about applying for a new job. The good news is that most companies value your experience and skills as long as you are passionate and able to adapt quickly.

Roswitha Remling, a Tech Support Triage Engineer at MongoDB, experienced this first-hand. Before she came to MongoDB, she took a break from working for several years to explore the world and learn about what it was she really wanted to do. She's visited 92 countries, 7 continents, and has even learned how to fly a plane!
