We started working on the idea in the summer of 2007. We were actually working on some other products and realized that, once again, we would have to work around databases.

In roughly the decade before we started working in MongoDB — between Dwight Merriman, the other co-founder, and myself — we realized we had probably built 12 custom solutions to work around database problems.

If you think about it broadly, MongoDB works really well when your data doesn’t fit a very rigid schema, but you still need to do complex kinds of operations on it.

I think it’s less about specific use cases and more about specific problems and environments.There are characteristics with use cases that really spring to mind, rather than just saying it works really well for CMS.

Databases have always been one of the hardest parts of building complex applications, and if we can make databases more accessible, we can let great innovators do great things for society.

For a company, one reason is that interns add a lot of enthusiasm and excitement to a team, and that can be really refreshing.

The reason I did it was that I was in the middle of deciding between a couple of different career choices, and I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do. I had to decide in the Fall, and there were two majors I was going to pursue. My internship helped me solidify my decision, which was great.

MongoDB started out as a component of a much larger, more ambitious project called 10gen. When my co-founder and I got started on that, it was 2007, and we both shared a powerful intuition that the world was moving towards a serverless model.

Perhaps the most important advice I have about delivering bad news isn't actually about delivering the news; it's about creating an environment where failure is understood to be a consequence of trying, and how you conduct yourself day-to-day.

Candidly, one of the reasons I joined MongoDB was – as a VC – I had a look at the NoSQL space... and when I did my research and diligence with my team it became very clear that MongoDB was far ahead of everyone else in terms of the size of the community, developer mind share and so forth.

I brought in a bunch of new senior execs in the organisation to really help scale it to the next level, and since then we've grown the business almost two-and-a-half times the size it was.

Marketing and press kicks up dust. It gets in your eye, and then you’re not focusing on the product.

Focus on simplicity, listen to your customers and iterate if you fail.
