    I worked at MongoDB full-time (more than an 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!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MongoDB.

    Interview Details

    Met at a career fair. One week later had an initial phone screen with HR and then one week later a technical phone interview with an engineer. The initial phone screen consisted of standard behavioral questions (What are you interested in, why do you want this job, etc.). The technical interview was also just standard resume questions followed by some algorithmic questions.
