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


    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.


    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!

    Development Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at MongoDB in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial interview for the Development Intern position and I found the interviewer to be young and inexperienced through her way of asking questions. Once the interview was over, I followed up with an email and didn't hear back from her for three months. In that period, I sent her 2 other emails enquiring about my status and she finally responded saying that I didn't get the internship because I was overqualified. Extremely unprofessional!
