Team Description:

The MongoDB Information Security organization is responsible for understanding the Cyber Security risks and threats that the business faces, and implements policies, processes and technology that reduces risk in alignment with business priorities.

  • Hyper-organized and capable of juggling multiple high-priority projects concurrently
