Are you looking for the chance to be a core member of the product marketing team in the fastest growing data platform company on the planet? Then look no further. 

Revenue from the database market is forecast to expand from $62bn in 2020 to just under $90bn in 2024, making it one of the tech industry’s largest software segments. MongoDB is well positioned to capitalize on this growth. We were the first database provider to IPO in over 20 years, and our business is growing at ~50% annually. 

 We are looking for a stellar candidate who can drive the Go-To-Market strategy and cross-company core messaging for the MongoDB database focusing on its distributed systems architecture. The MongoDB database provides the foundational layer of MongoDB Data Platform. Extending from the edge to the cloud, the MongoDB Data Platform enables our customers to build applications faster, scale them further, and analyze deeper.  

 You’ll be a key member of an energetic and globally distributed team that reports to the Senior Director of Database Product Marketing. In the role, you will be responsible for creating compelling thought leadership themes, messages and GTM programs that position the value of the MongoDB database and its distributed systems design to a diverse audience – from developers, DBAs, and architects through to senior technical and business decision makers.

Your content will be expressed through stories that engage our audiences including the developer community, press and analysts, and senior decision makers.

  • Evangelize – Engage directly with customers in support of sales cycles. Drive awareness and desire of the MongoDB Data Platform by presenting at industry conferences, and assuming the role of spokesperson to the press and analyst community
