MongoDB unleashes the power of software and data for innovators everywhere

Our Core Values

Think Big, Go Far

We are big dreamers with a passion for creativity. We eagerly pursue new opportunities and markets through innovation and disruption. We have a pioneering spirit - always ready to forge new paths and take smart risks.

Make It Matter

We are relentless in our pursuit of meaningful impact. We think strategically and are clear on what we are and are not trying to do. We accomplish an amazing amount of important work, and we are obsessed with follow through.

Build Together

We achieve amazing things by connecting and leveraging the diversity of skills, experiences and backgrounds of our entire organization. We discuss things thoroughly, but prioritize commitment over consensus. We are good listeners and always communicate with clarity and respect. We create and support a positive, inclusive, and accepting environment.

Embrace the Power of Differences

We commit to creating a culture of inclusion by seeking and valuing employees from different backgrounds and circumstances. This is cultivated by learning from and respecting each other’s differences. We firmly believe that everyone deserves to feel valued and safe in the workplace, and we acknowledge that underrepresented groups may not always feel this way. We recognize that a diverse workforce is the best way to broaden our perspectives, foster innovation, and enable a sustainable competitive advantage.

Be Intellectually Honest

We embrace reality. We apply high-quality thinking and rigor. We have courage in our convictions but work hard to ensure biases or personal beliefs do not get in the way of finding the best solution.

Own What You Do

We take ownership and are accountable for everything that we do. We empower and we are empowered to make things happen, and balance independence with interdependence. We demand excellence from ourselves. We each play our own part in making MongoDB a great place to work.

Our Story

MongoDB was founded in 2007 by Dwight Merriman, Eliot Horowitz and Kevin Ryan – the team behind DoubleClick.

At the Internet advertising company DoubleClick (now owned by Google), the team developed and used many custom data stores to work around the shortcomings of existing databases. The business served 400,000 ads per second, but often struggled with both scalability and agility. Frustrated, the team was inspired to create a database that tackled the challenges it faced at DoubleClick.

MongoDB is the leading modern, general purpose database platform, designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and the applications they build. Headquartered in New York, with offices across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, we are close to where you do business. MongoDB has more than 6,600 customers in more than 100 countries. The MongoDB database platform has been downloaded over 40 million times and there have been more than 1 million MongoDB University registrations.

How We Support Our Community

CSNYC

It is still unusual for students to encounter computer science in their classrooms before they enter college. This absence directly contributes to the gender and racial disparity we see today across the technology industry. MongoDB partners with CSNYC to build a suite of materials for computer science teacher training, and a curriculum for them to use in the classroom. Our goal is to improve access to computing much earlier in students’ academic careers.

Diversity Scholarships

We are breaking down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups in technology from attending tech conferences and offer Diversity Scholarships to MongoDB events. Recipients receive complimentary admission, a pre-conference workshop, a MongoDB certification voucher, and access to enterprise MongoDB University training courses.

Social Responsibility

We are proud to partner with Bright Funds, a philanthropic program that allows employees to donate to over 1 million charities right from their paycheck. 100% of contributions goes directly to the cause of the employee’s choosing.
