For the first quarter of 2021, MongoDB expects revenue in the range of $119 million to $121 million, with an estimated $1 million to $2 million negative impact from the pandemic. For the full year, the database platform expects revenue in the range of $510 million to $530 million, with a $15 million to $25 million negative impact from COVID-19.
“The situation regarding COVID-19 is uncertain and is changing rapidly and MongoDB will continue to evaluate its potential impact on its business,” the company said in a statement.
MongoDB also announced that its co-founder and CTO Eliot Horowitz is stepping down as CTO and as a director of the company. Effective July 10, when MongoDB will hold its annual meeting, Horowitz will step down and become a technical adviser.
In a statement, CEO Dev Ittycheria thanked Horowitz for “his technical vision, leadership and immense contributions since co-founding the company,” adding that the company has a “strong and deep leadership team that will carry on with [his] vision.”
