Free the genius within everyone

We believe that making data easy to work with gives people the opportunity to free their genius and create something world-changing.

Guided by core values

We look for these core values in all our employees, and how we operate as a whole.

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 Difference

We commit to creating a culture of inclusion by seeking and valuing employees from different backgrounds and circumstances. We learn from and respect each other’s differences. We firmly believe 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 all play a part in making MongoDB a great place to work. We demand excellence from ourselves, taking ownership and accountability for everything that we do. We empower others around us, just as we are empowered to make change and progress happen.

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.

This was when MongoDB was born.

How we support our community

CSNYC Partnership

Our goal is to improve access to computing much earlier in students’ academic careers. The absence of computer science in classrooms before college directly contributes to the gender and racial disparity we see across the tech industry. MongoDB has partnered with CSNYC to build a suite of materials for comp-sci teacher training.

Diversity Scholarships

At MongoDB we offer Diversity Scholarships to our events to encourage underrepresented tech workers and students to attend conferences. 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 the contribution goes directly to the cause of the employee’s choosing.
