We are the leading developer data platform and the first database provider to IPO in over 20 years. Join our team and be at the forefront of innovation and creativity.

We're seeking an AI Developer Advocate to join our Developer Relations team, driving enablement for MongoDB's artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities. As developers increasingly choose MongoDB as their data platform, your role will involve directly engaging the community, creating inspiring resources and content, and collaborating with a global team of skilled Developer Advocates.

If you're passionate about AI's potential and enjoy fostering a vibrant developer ecosystem, join us in shaping the future of development on MongoDB.

You should be an effective teacher with the ability to explain complex issues in a simple, understandable manner. In addition to an appreciation for key, AI-related capabilities of our platform, like vector search and aggregation pipelines, you will develop expertise in the core capabilities of MongoDB, document modeling, and emerging topics across our industry.

Though the expertise you bring will be unique, our team is built to work together to share knowledge and help each other grow. You will work with others at all levels, supporting peer reviews for examples, demonstrations, sessions, and other content.
