The worldwide data management software market is massive (According to IDC, the worldwide database software market, which it refers to as the database management systems software market, was forecasted to be approximately $82 billion in 2023 growing to approximately $137 billion in 2027. This represents a 14% 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 Build Team supports build systems for the entire MongoDB engineering organization. This includes implementing and maintaining our Bazel build system, for both the database server, Mongo Cloud (“Atlas”), as well as a suite of other products. These build systems handle a variety of languages (primarily C++, Java and Go), and provide not just compilation, but packaging and distribution. Most MongoDB engineers rely on these tools for their daily work. In addition to developing new build-related capabilities, the Build team provides ongoing support for our 750+ internal engineers.
