You will get the chance to drive the implementation of a feature that will have a real impact on the day-to-day work of other MongoDB employees by deploying it to our world-class performance benchmarking system.

Replicated Storage Services

The MongoDB Replicated Storage Services team's mission is to research and develop new algorithms for storing data, maintain a pluggable protocol for MongoDB storage engines, and provide a comprehensive framework for managing concurrent, transactional access to data stored locally within a MongoDB database instance.

Our team champions a strong culture of inclusivity, diversity, and collaboration. As a team member, you will contribute to crafting and maintaining the different server components, connecting its query system and distributed replication system to its underlying storage engines.

Storage Engines

The MongoDB Storage Team is building WiredTiger, a world-class open source storage engine. The WiredTiger storage engine manages how MongoDB stores data, both in-memory and on disk, and provides scalable parallel access that is leveraged by the higher layers of the MongoDB data platform stack. The Storage Team is a diverse collection of individuals working together to keep MongoDB storage ahead of the most challenging customer expectations.

As an intern, you will work with and learn from a globally distributed and highly collaborative team of engineers, collectively developing production-level code. Storage interns enjoy dedicated mentors, a friendly and helpful team environment, and social activities with their peers and colleagues.
