Software company MongoDB set to double staff numbers in Dublin office
16 March 2017
Database software leader MongoDB is to double its staff from 75 people to more than 150 in the next year, SiliconRepublic.com has reported. Formerly known as 10gen, MongoDB is one of the internet’s foremost database architectures and is key to the emerging internet of things (IoT) world.
Engineering giant Bosch has built its entire IoT architecture using MongoDB technology. Aer Lingus uses it to handle ticketing and internal apps while broadcaster Sky uses it to manage its streaming. MongoDB technology is used by 90 per cent of the world’s retail banks and half of the Fortune 100 companies.
The company came to Dublin in 2013 to establish its EMEA headquarters in the city as part of an aggressive growth plan, beginning with customer and technical support.
“We have since expanded our operations to include finance, legal, sales, engineering and more. It is truly a cross-functional office, not a sales outpost,” CEO Dev Ittycheria has told Siliconrepublic.com.
“With our new Ballsbridge offices, we have basically tripled our capacity compared to where we were and now, the opportunity is to grow. We have around 75 people and we expect to more than double that in a pretty quick timeframe,” Ittycheria told SiliconRepublic.com.
He explained that the Dublin operation is at the nexus of major trends driving MongoDB’s future. “Software either enables, creates or defines a company’s value proposition and the underlying foundation of the application is the database, and this is what is driving demand for MongoDB,” Ittycheria said. He said trends such as big data and cloud are also driving demand for the software.
