We’re thrilled to be hiring for MongoDB’s Sales Academy program! This program prepares emerging professionals with the training and experience they need to jumpstart a career in sales. We’re looking for recent college graduates and career changers with an interest in technology to join our rapidly growing sales team.

“The creation of a program designed to develop recent college graduates and career changers into sales professionals is a natural extension of MongoDB’s culture of talent development. We have best in breed sales enablement and onboarding programs, and a “BDR to CRO” program focused on accelerating sales careers. We have an opportunity to bring these world-class training programs to those who are starting their careers, and to turn emerging professionals into future leaders at MongoDB.” - Meghan Gill, SVP Sales Operations & SDR

The Sales Academy is a full-time, paid 12-week training program based in Austin, TX. It will focus on training and developing future MongoDB Sales Development Representatives as, upon completion, these employees will move into a full time SDR position. Those who are part of the Sales Academy have direct one-on-one support from their sales mentors, MongoDB’s leadership team, and each other. These new employees complete a best-in-class training program, which includes both technical concepts and sales processes. Through regular coaching and professional development training, our Sales Academy employees graduate from the program and become full-time Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) at MongoDB.

Hannah Branfman was part of our SDR Internship program and, upon graduating from her school, joined us full-time. Hannah has since been promoted to an Account Executive role. When asked about what sales at MongoDB is like, Hannah says:

“If you have ambition, are coachable and have a strong desire to learn, MongoDB will be a great fit for you. You have to be willing to make mistakes and remain naturally curious — don’t stop asking questions! If you have the perseverance to not only get here, but to then set the bar high for yourself and surpass it, you will fit in great. Get ready to make an impact!” - Hannah Branfman, Account Executive

Abhi Kotti joined our September ‘21 Sales Academy cohort upon graduation from Arizona State. We asked Abhi about how he overcame his worries and fears about the transition from school into the workplace:

“After officially joining the Sales Academy, my worries and fears about starting my first job out of school went away quickly. MongoDB welcomed me into such a warm and friendly culture, with everyone so willing to help. If I were to give advice to someone joining Sales Academy, I would really emphasize that they are in a great place to thrive and learn, regardless of previous experience.” - Abhi Kotti, Account Executive
