The worldwide data management software market is massive (According to IDC, the data management software market is forecast to be $94 billion in 2023 growing to approximately $153 billion in 2027, representing a 13% compound annual growth rate). 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.

The Enterprise Advanced team is a diverse group of individuals across Europe, who develop software to run MongoDB on any type of infrastructure at global scale. Our software and services allow users to deploy fault-tolerant, globally distributed MongoDB clusters in minutes.

You will work on the core functionality for all of our cloud products, mainly on the Ops Manager and Cloud Manager products. Our team's end users are some of the largest businesses in the world, deploying massive clusters and processing huge amounts of data.

  • Eager to learn, with a strong technical background
  • Able to build a confident team who can act independently, developing their skills and helping them apply their talents

  • Lead the team in designing, implement, test and release features for our Cloud Manager and Ops Manager products (a mix of on premises and cloud products)
