A great MongoDB experience starts with great tools.
The Drivers team builds the libraries and tools that developers use day-to-day working with MongoDB. Our mission is to increase developer adoption, satisfaction and retention by providing a reliable, enjoyable interface for developers and other end-users.
For this role, we're looking for someone who enjoys designing, writing, and supporting Open Source libraries and standalone tools for developers and administrators using MongoDB.
You'll be on a team responsible for...
The MongoDB Go Driver, currently under active development
The command line utilities that ship with the MongoDB server, including performance optimizations as our customers deal with ever-larger data sets
The mongomirror tool, a utility for migrating data from an existing MongoDB replica set to MongoDB Atlas (our cloud Database-as-a-Service)
Testing, delivering and supporting the above list across multiple operating systems and versions of MongoDB
You'll have responsibilities beyond just code, including...
Working with our Product and Server teams on designs and specifications for new customer-facing MongoDB features
Investigating bugs and support requests from commercial and Open Source customers for the libraries and tools our team maintains
Seeking out speaking or writing opportunities to evangelize to developer communities
Success in this role means...
Within three months, you'll know most of the codebase you are responsible for and will be contributing effectively day-to-day fixing bugs, implementing already-planned features and doing peer code-review
Within six months, you'll have implemented several major, planned new features in the driver or tools; you'll be able to respond effectively to technical support escalations for the codebases you know best; you'll have the trust of the team and our internal customers
Within a year, you'll have delivered several new releases of our software, will have significantly improved the quality, performance and maintainability of our codebase, and will be able to independently scope and design new features of moderate complexity
