MongoDB unleashes the power of software and data for innovators everywhere

Our Core Values

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, Inc. is the company behind the database for GIANT ideas, offering the best of traditional databases as well as the flexibility, scale and performance today’s applications require. We build MongoDB and the drivers, offer software and services, run MongoDB University (which has trained over 350,000 engineers in MongoDB), and sponsor the MongoDB community.

With offices across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, we are close to where you do business.

How We Support Our Community

Girls Who Code

MongoDB supports Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization that educates, inspires, and equips high school girls with skills and resources to pursue opportunities in technical fields. Downloading the community edition of MongoDB offers users with the option for MongoDB to donate $1 to Girls Who Code on the user's behalf. Learn more or download MongoDB today.

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.
