MongoDB Revenue in Q4 Hits $361.3M, Up 36% from $266M YoY

Analyst Take: MongoDB’s revenue increase of 36 percent in Q4 2023 is positive news for the company as it continues to boost its customer numbers for its established open source, scale-out data platform, while also seeing revenue increases for its database services as well.

MongoDB is continuing to help its customers drive operational efficiencies using its data platform, giving customers broad abilities to store large amounts of structured and unstructured data using well-known tools and formats. Founded in 2007, MongoDB’s flexible, expandable architecture lets database developers store documents in a JSON-like format that maps directly to native objects in a wide range of programming languages.

MongoDB’s flexible and innovative architecture make it popular with developers who are building databases for highly available and scalable internet applications. The company’s flagship product is its MongoDB Atlas multi-cloud developer data platform.

The Q4 and FY2023 growth for MongoDB is particularly impressive due to the challenging macroeconomic conditions still being seen in the tech and consumer markets around the world.

Here are MongoDB’s Q4 and full FY2023 earnings results by the numbers:

  • Q4 2023 revenue of $361.3 million, up 36 percent from $266.5 million one year ago. The Q4 revenue figure handily beat analyst consensus estimates of $339.3 million from Investing.com.

Overall, MongoDB had a solid fourth quarter and full year of 2023 and is positioned to continue its earnings progress throughout the coming FY2024. Under the leadership of MongoDB’s president and CEO, Dev Ittycheria, and the rest of his leadership team, this is a company that is continuing to drive innovation and flexibility for enterprise database customers around the world.

MongoDB’s customer growth has been rising every quarter since at least January of 2021, giving it more than 40,800 enterprise customers by January of 2023. That is up from more than 33,000 customers one year ago and up from 24,800 customers in January of 2021.
