Our founders created 10gen and MongoDB to solve the new problems facing companies today. Their vision -- tools for developers, written by developers -- is still in our bones.
You will be the voice of Ruby, on both the 10gen team and within the broader MongoDB community. You will be responsible for supporting MongoDB in the Ruby ecosystem through driver development, integration with open source tools, community support, and developer advocacy.
Like MongoDB, our team is distributed: we live and work in New York City, Silicon Valley, Atlanta, London, and Dublin, and get together twice a year for a fun, all-company retreat. Our last meeting included a scavenger hunt throughout New York City, dinner and drinks at a great local restaurant, and lots of conversation about open source software.We’re an open source company, and that means we value openness and transparency with our staff. Whether it’s at an all-company meeting, one of our weekly team lunches, or over beers after one of our conferences, we’re constantly sharing our work, play, and all the things between.
All engineers at 10gen are involved in every aspect of the technology, from writing code, to supporting customers, to taking part in the community. Our users provide us with immediate and constant feedback (both good and bad!), as the code that 10gen engineers write is put into production. No one writes code in a vacuum at 10gen; we all fail or succeed alongside our customers and community members.
MongoDB grew out of real needs facing developers building the next generation of applications. Our users drive our roadmap, through feature requests and bug reports. Our mailing list is active, and everyone at 10gen fields questions from our users.
In addition to helping our users building fantastic apps, we love participating in the broader open source community. We work on community open source projects (beyond the core MongoDB project) as part of our day-to-day activities. We all benefit from the interaction with and feedback from the community. To encourage that exchange, we sponsor and support free meetups around the world.
10gen was founded by former DoubleClick Founder and CTO Dwight Merriman and former DoubleClick engineer and ShopWiki Founder and CTO Eliot Horowitz. Dwight and Eliot began development on MongoDB in 2007, drawing upon their experiences building large scale, high availability, robust systems.
10gen is backed by leading venture capital firms who invested in established leaders like Oracle, Cisco and Apple as well as rapidly growing internet companies like Zynga and Twitter.
10gen develops MongoDB, and offers production support, training, and consulting for the open source database.
