Company mission

To empower innovators to create, transform, and disrupt industries by unleashing the power of software and data.


Who you are

  • Pragmatic, detail-oriented, self-motivated, and understands the benefits of collaboration
  • Provides guidance and coaching to entry-mid level engineers
  • Takes a software-driven approach to solving problems and routinely uses git to track progress
  • Familiar with software engineering principles, dependency injection, composition, and test driven development
  • Experience designing/implementing medium/large scale software projects (preferably with Go)
  • Familiar with standard authentication protocols (e.g OAuth)
  • Familiar with the development of web services and/or Kubernetes controllers
  • Experienced performing deep technical analysis and fixing applications, systems, and networks
  • Strong Linux and TCP/IP networking skills
  • Solid knowledge of cloud infrastructure
  • Experience with configuration management tools and managing infrastructure through code
  • Familiar with how to use CI/CD workflows and tooling to deploy production services
  • Experience running containers in a production environment, preferably Kubernetes based
  • Experience with observability concepts and tooling, metrics, logging, traces, Prometheus, Grafana, OpenTelemetry
  • Has practical knowledge of delivering production level services with SLI/SLOs and understands how to measure, track and adjust them

What the job involves

  • The Infrastructure Engineering team is responsible for building and maintaining a self-service internal development platform that enables MongoDB engineering teams to reliably deploy and operate their own production services and products
  • We work with numerous engineering teams across the company to understand their infrastructure requirements and development workflows, develop broadly applicable self-service platform services and tooling, continuously monitor how platform services are being utilized, and look for ways to improve developer productivity through automation and education
  • We are big open source enthusiasts and use a number of open source tools in our stack (contributing upstream whenever possible). Some of the tools we use regularly include Go, AWS, Kubernetes, Crossplane, Terraform, Helm, Drone, Prometheus, and Grafana
  • However, technology is nothing without a stellar team of engineers that are focused on doing high quality work and working as a team to solve complex distributed computing and platform engineering problems. This is where you come in!
  • Work with engineering teams across MongoDB to investigate gaps and limitations in existing development workflows and understand new infrastructure and platform requirements
  • Design self-service platform services and developer tooling that focuses on reliability, usability, and provides the appropriate level of abstraction from cloud infrastructure
  • Regularly write and review automation, configuration management, and application code
  • Author and review functional specifications and scoping documents for large platform projects and services
  • Own and operate much of the internal development platform that runs MongoDB
  • Work on a distributed team that frequently interacts with remote engineers across multiple time zones (primarily PST/EST/GMT)
  • Success Measures:
  • In three months you’ll have familiarized yourself with much of our environment and will be able to whiteboard important pieces of our platform on the fly. You will also be making regular contributions to our tooling/services and jumping in to help resolve incidents and respond to user requests
  • In six months you’ll have successfully investigated, scoped, executed, and documented a medium to large sized platform project
  • In a year you’ll have used your deep knowledge of our software and infrastructure to help drive platform adoption across the company. You will also be a subject matter expert in at least one component of our platform, and will have made a number of sizable contributions to our code base that significantly improve the quality, reliability and maintainability of our systems

Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

MongoDB is an open-source, cross-platform, document-oriented database system. It stores data as JSON-like documents and is written in C++, Go, JavaScript and Python.

Essentially, the company develops tools and blueprints to help businesses and organisations modernise their legacy applications, migrating them to the MongoDB database and the MongoDB Atlas cloud database. With this initiative, MongoDB is particularly taking aim at Oracle customers with ageing applications running on the Oracle relational database system.

Since its release, MongoDB has become one of the most popularly used NoSQL database systems due to its ease of use and efficiency. It is also the fastest-growing database ecosystem, and boasts hundreds of millions of downloads. Recently, the company announced a partnership with Patronus AI, an automated evaluation and security platform, through which it will bring automated LLM evaluation and testing capabilities to enterprise customers.
