The database market is massive (IDC estimates it to be $121B+ by 2025!) and MongoDB is at the head of its disruption. At MongoDB we are transforming industries and empowering developers to build amazing apps that people use every day. We are the leading modern 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 launch a new Enterprise Integrations team. The Enterprise Integrations team is central to MongoDB’s ability to provide access to the myriad of data sources utilized daily by corporate systems across the company.

The Enterprise Integrations team is part of the wider Engineering Corps, which is comprised 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.
This is a hybrid management position that will require recruiting for and developing junior engineers, as well as rolling up your sleeves and developing solutions together with your team. MongoDB Engineering Leads are expected to be both people managers and active developers.
