What Mongodb is looking for in applicants

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.

At MongoDB, we are building the modern data platform for our developers. The MongoDB Database Platform team’s goal is to empower our database server product with the observability, resilience, and platform support that our customers expect and our competitors fail to deliver. We succeed when our customers have predictable and consistent system behavior across the most common platforms used in enterprise and community development.  

We imbue the core server product with foundational resource management and operational resilience - enabling our system (and peer development teams) to manage massive scale on disk, memory, network and CPU by governing its use in a predictable and efficient way. We research, partner, and enable support for the most valuable operating systems, architectures and distribution channels. These system capabilities enable our customers to push the server in any environment, without putting their key workloads, or even the integrity of the system, at risk. 

We are looking for an exceptional product management leader to come join our team and take on a key role in our Core Database product organization. This is a rare opportunity to join a company that is leading innovation in a $60B+ market. The team leads product direction, packaging, and pricing for the fastest growing database technology. 

This role can be based out of our New York City office or remotely in the United States.
