The worldwide data management software market is massive (IDC forecasts it to be $136 billion by 2027!). 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 MongoDB Catalog and Routing team carries the important responsibility of hiding the complexity of building a distributed database system. They implement scalable interfaces with strong consistency guarantees which are used by other MongoDB developers to navigate and organize user data. As a result, their work has a direct impact on the productivity of the entire organization and the success of MongoDB’s horizontal scaling strategy.

Recent work includes the addition of unpartitioned datasets to the catalog such that it can be balanced across multiple nodes without splitting a table’s keyspace, embedding cluster topology components to reduce the operational complexity of running a sharded cluster, and the ability to perform concurrent data definition operations.

We are looking to speak to candidates who are based in Barcelona for our hybrid working model.

Candidate Profile

Successful candidates will have majority of the following qualities

  • Shown success in designing, writing, testing and maintaining distributed and/or highly concurrent software systems in large, long-lived C/C++ code bases
  • Proven experience in programming, debugging and performance tuning, and a strong grip on computer science fundamentals. Professional or advanced academic expertise in the areas of distributed systems and databases is preferable, but not strongly required
  • Excellent verbal and written technical communication skills and desire to collaborate with colleagues and mentor junior engineers and interns
  • Excellent time leadership skills and the ability to make realistic assessments of project complexity
  • Regardless of prior experience, they are willing, able and excited to quickly learn new things in the domains of computer science and software engineering. They are curious about how people and organizations use MongoDB, and how MongoDB could be improved to enable more uses

  • Understand and improve current functionality in MongoDB’s catalog and routing components
  • Identify, design, implement, test and support new features in MongoDB
  • Work with other specialists to coordinate flawless changes in a feature-rich, large code base
  • Work with product management and others to specify new features that delight our users
  • Estimate task complexity and report progress and risks to peers and managers
  • Learn from and teach peers and junior engineers
  • Develop and maintain expertise in the modern practice and research of distributed systems and databases

Success Measures
