The worldwide data management software market is massive (IDC forecasts it to be $136 billion by 2027!). At MongoDB we are transforming industries and empowering developers to build amazing apps that people use every day. We are the leading developer 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.

MongoDB seeks an experienced software engineer to help level-up TechOps and grow its internal tools offerings by orders of magnitude. Central to MongoDB’s ability to provide a myriad of technical resources to all company employees, TechOp’s responsibility is to realize and develop internal technical solutions for individual employees, teams, departments, and the company as a whole. The team is composed of front-end and back-end engineers with a large breadth of expertise and experience, and a track record of timely delivery and delighted customers.

Our core tech stack consists of a Golang web application built on top of MongoDB Atlas, serving up a GraphQL API. Our Frontend is built using NextJS and React. And we’re open to using new tooling to deliver the highest quality product to our customers.

  • Is familiar and comfortable with Linux and CI/CD strategies and tooling, e.g. k8s, Docker, Drone, or similar
  • Is self motivated and not afraid to break a few eggs to get a product over the finish line
  • Builds great things alone, but the greatest things in collaboration with others

Position Expectations:

  • Design, build, and operate internal tools and services that are reliable, scalable, and observable
  • Investigate gaps and limitations in existing tooling and develop well-thought-out long-term solutions
