Roles and Certification Levels

MongoDB certifies Database Administrators (DBAs) and Application Developers.

  • Database Administrator (DBA) – A MongoDB database administrator has in-depth knowledge of run-time configuration, processes, scaling, backup and recovery, monitoring, and performance tuning for production MongoDB instances.
  • Developer – A software engineer fluent in at least one programming language and its associated MongoDB driver. An application developer has a detailed understanding of MongoDB CRUD operations, the driver API, schema design, aggregation and basic scaling.
Within each role, we define a roadmap for certification at three levels: Associate, Professional, and Master. We currently offer certification at the Associate Level for the DBA and developer roles. Certification at other levels will be available in the future.
