MongoDB is a company passionate about empowering engineers by providing them with database and data platform technologies that are intuitive, powerful, and scalable.

In order for the Server engineers developing the MongoDB database to have confidence in the quality of the products they're building, the Server Tooling and Methods (STM) team is a Developer Productivity team focused on developing tools and automated systems to make it easy to verify both the correctness and performance of the database. The team combines skills in software development, systems engineering, and logical reasoning to build tools we are proud of and to spread a culture of rigor across the Server team.

  • Most notably on the correctness side, this includes enhancing our fleet of fuzzers for verifying the behavior of the query and replication subsystems

  • Appetite for learning about the internals of the MongoDB database in order to more effectively devise techniques for testing it.

  • Excellent communication skills for interacting with stakeholders in requirements gathering, design, proof-of-concept demonstrations, implementation, and adoption

Position Expectations

  • Develop software that accelerates development feedback and increases confidence in code changes for our industry-leading database software

  • Includes devising techniques for exposing and investigating data corruption, crashes, hangs, and race conditions

  • Provide a high-quality and consistent local experience for all aspects of authoring correctness tests and performance workloads

  • Consult with Server engineers on requirements and strategies for testing new database features or functionality

Success Measures

A software engineer is considered successful in this role after having taken on the following responsibilities

  • Technical: Successfully implemented one new feature that accelerates feedback, improves debuggability, or increases confidence in the quality of the database product

  • Ownership: Actively participates in requirements gathering, design, development, testing, deployment, and monitoring
