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 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 4,900 customers in over 85 countries. The MongoDB database platform has been downloaded over 30 million times and there have been more than 730,000 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.
