Sr. Software Engineer (Java/Cloud) at MongoDB (New York, NY)

MongoDB Cloud Services Team is a diverse collection of individuals working together to help users manage their MongoDB deployments. The team develops software to run MongoDB in the cloud at global scale, including MongoDB Atlas, our database as a service offering. Our software and services allow users to deploy fault-tolerant, globally distributed MongoDB clusters in just minutes.

As Cloud has grown, so has our code and infrastructure. Our surface area stretches across Java (8), JavaScript (ES6) and Go (1.7) with a smattering of scripting in Python, Ruby and shell. The Platform team is geared towards jump-starting best practice initiatives and tackling problems commonly found in the too-hard basket.

We’re looking for someone who is

  • Curious, and constantly learning
  • Passionate about developer productivity – improving the status quo around them
  • Innovative – finds a way around blockers
  • Diligent, thorough, and has an eye for detail
  • Keeps tabs on best practices in the wider developer community
  • Has experience working with medium-to-large scale web applications
  • 5+ years of software engineering experience, preferably with breadth across multiple organizations and ecosystems

Responsibilities

  • Work closely with the team lead to isolate and identify inefficient practices and blockers within the platform;
  • Drive initiatives, from scope to implementation, engaging Cloud engineers and stakeholders along the way;
  • Be open and upfront with colleagues about reasoning and intention behind new initiatives; and
  • Own our core values and adhere to them in your work; and
  • Stay up to date with best practices in web application engineering, feeding that knowledge back into the platform.

Success Measures

A Platform Engineer will be successful in this role when they:

  • Have both breadth and depth across the various codebases, languages and toolchains within Cloud
  • Understand the business needs of Cloud customers, the architecture of the system and limitations within the various products within the Cloud group
  • Develop strong rapports with individual teams and understand how best to work with them to achieve success
  • Can drive initiatives from start to finish and are diligent in engaging all relevant stakeholders
