Since every company is quickly becoming a software company, a company’s success is correlated to its ability to use software and data as a competitive advantage. The most sophisticated organizations, from cutting edge start-ups to the largest companies in the world, are using MongoDB to transform their businesses. MongoDB is pursuing a massive market (IDC estimates it to be $106B+ by 2024!), and is recognized as the most popular modern general purpose database platform in the world with millions of devoted developers and tens of thousands of customers around the world. 

We are hiring a Chief of Staff to the CEO. This is a critical role, as this person will be responsible for designing and executing strategic initiatives and operational programs in close partnership with the CEO and executive leaders across the organization.
