Posted on Saturday, May 6, 2023

The worldwide data management software market is massive (IDC forecasts it to be $138 billion by 2026!). 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.

APIx’s mission is to craft delightful experiences for developers of all levels onboarding and working with MongoDB.

This role will involve forming a new team in APIx that will be responsible for building our tools to automate infrastructure on any cloud. The Integrations team will be responsible for our DevOps tooling & SDKs for Atlas customers, enabling them to mange their deployments at scale using Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Automation & DevOps will be its core, as the number of Integrations & SDKs continue to grow. You will be responsible for building a platform that allows the team to scale with that growth.

We are looking for passionate, intrinsically-motivated software engineers who consistently work to grow their skills and want to take their careers to the next level. No prior experience with MongoDB technologies is required! During interviews, you will meet most of our team and have the opportunity to ask questions about working at MongoDB. We pride ourselves on our team's culture and on being an inclusive and collaborative group that Builds Together.
