    I worked at MongoDB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will be surrounded - literally - by wonderful people. Young, intelligent, driven!

    There is plenty of challenging work to be done.

    You don't have to be fresh out of MIT, Stanford or UIUC to get in the door.

    There is an active "Databases Reading Group" so you will always know what the competition were up to.

    Cons

    The product has deep technical issues. Unless powering through other people's bugs is your cup of tea, this can make work very challenging.

    The company is more a bunch of hackers than a serious software company. You definitely need a college degree (unless you're interning!), but a PhD is more or less worthless at MongoDB.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a decent bid comes in, sell!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MongoDB in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in a resume to their website, received an email asking to set up a phone screen. After speaking for roughly 15 minutes about projects I had worked on and questions I had about the position the conversation was over.
