Ulander was previously the Head of Enterprise and Developer Marketing at Amazon Web Services. He has also served at VMware, where he was the VP of Marketing, and at Cisco, where he was the CTO and VP of Strategy, Global Architectures and Enterprise Transformation.
"A developer at his core, Peder's background lines up perfectly with the DNA of MongoDB," Dev Ittycheria, MongoDB President & CEO, said in a press release. "MongoDB is reinventing how developers work with data to build modern applications and helping companies innovate more quickly. Adding Peder to this equation will dramatically accelerate our efforts to become the world's pre-eminent application data platform."
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database platform designed for developers and the applications they build. The company currently has over 29,000 users in over 100 countries.
"As the world is moving from data centers to centers of data, customers need to rethink their data platform to accommodate the requirements of modern applications and new user experiences," Ulander said.
