Lead, Engineering

New York City, NY

The database market is massive (IDC estimates it to be $121B+ by 2025!) and MongoDB is at the head of its disruption. At MongoDB we are transforming industries and empowering developers to build amazing apps that people use every day. We are the leading modern data platform and the first database provider to IPO in over 20 years. Join our team and be at the forefront of innovation and creativity.

MongoDB seeks an experienced software engineer to help level-up TechOps and launch a new GTM Solutions team. The GTM Solutions team will work closely with Product (R&D), Sales, Data Engineering/Analytics, and other departments, to build applications that gather and utilize customer workload telemetry and consumption data to generate insights and signals that enable us to better support the customer workload journey.

The GTM Solutions team is part of the wider Engineering Corps, which is comprised of front-end and back-end engineers with a large breadth of expertise and experience, and a track record of timely delivery and delighted customers.

This is a hybrid management position that will require recruiting for and developing junior engineers, as well as rolling up your sleeves and developing solutions together with your team. MongoDB Engineering Leads are expected to be both people managers and active developers.

We are looking to speak to candidates who are based in New York City for our hybrid working model.
