MongoDB's vision is to provide the best database for how we build and run applications today. The MongoDB community is reinventing data management and powering big data with a modern database designed for agility and scalability.
Big data, cloud, mobile, social and other computing trends are enabling new opportunities for organizations of all sizes. Yet these trends present significant challenges to traditional data management approaches, and they benefit from a fundamentally new database platform and architecture.
All engineers at MongoDB are involved in every aspect of the technology, from writing code, to supporting customers, to taking part in the community. Our users provide us with immediate and constant feedback (both good and bad!), as the code that MongoDB engineers write is put into production. No one writes code in a vacuum at MongoDB; we all fail or succeed alongside our customers and community members.
Of course, not everyone at MongoDB codes, but the hacker mentality -- of doing more with what you have, and creating new tools when nothing that exists fits the bill -- is present in each of us. Our marketing team bootstraps dozens of MongoDB conferences around the world. Our sales team steps in and helps troubleshoot support cases. Every day we all try to do more and do better.
MongoDB knows how to have fun...
Like MongoDB, our team is distributed: we live and work in New York City, Silicon Valley, Atlanta, London, and Dublin, and get together twice a year for a fun, all-company retreat. Our last meeting included a scavenger hunt throughout New York City, dinner and drinks at a great local restaurant, and lots of conversation about open source software.
We're an open source company, and that means we value openness and transparency with our staff. Whether it's at an all-company meeting, one of our weekly team lunches, or over beers after one of our conferences, we're constantly sharing our work, play, and all the things between.
We strive to build something amazing, to work on hard, interesting problems, and to surround ourselves with bright people. Our work is challenging, but that's what makes it fun.
