Software Engineering Internship - Summer 2022/2023 (Sydney)


Every month, millions of people across the world are downloading MongoDB to transform industries and build amazing apps that are used every day. We believe that making data easy to work with allows our users the opportunity to free their genius and create something world-changing. The database market is massive (IDC estimates it to be $121B+ by 2025!) and MongoDB is at the head of its disruption. Join our team to help us ‘Think Big, Go Far’ this summer! 

We’re seeking curious minds like yours to collaborate with full-time engineers, learning standard development methodologies and gaining practical software engineering experience. Interns are fully integrated software engineers who spend the summer pushing production-level code to make lasting contributions to our products.

Our opportunities in Sydney are on our Storage Engines Team, Charts Team, Labs Team, and Migrator Team.

The Storage Engines team works in C/C++ and manages how MongoDB stores data, both in-memory and on-disk. The Charts team uses Javascript to maintain and update MongoDB’s modern data visualization tool that is integrated with the MongoDB cloud data platform.

The Labs team is MongoDB's research department, working across various technologies and tasked with identifying and exploring products and technologies. The Migrator team is an upcoming greenfield first-party MongoDB product that will help customers migrate workloads from relational databases to MongoDB - the team works in Typescript, React, Java, Spring Boot, and more.
