Saavn, India’s leading audio entertainment streaming platform, has won the 2016 MongoDB Innovation Award in the mobile category, recognizing the company’s engineering team as one of the best in the world. Run by the American database company MongoDB, the Innovation Awards annually recognize organizations creating world’s most groundbreaking data-driven applications. Past award recipients include Facebook, LinkedIn, Genentech, and eBay.

Saavn’s engineering team constantly pushes the barriers in software development to provide listeners around the world with the best possible experience.

“We are honored to be one of such an accomplished group of companies honored by MongoDB,” said Sriranjan Manjunath, Saavn’s CTO. “Saavn has seen enormous growth over the past year and MongoDB’s NoSQL model has enabled us to provide the best possible experience to each of our users. Like Facebook’s investment in big data, we have focused our resources on designing backend systems to support our hundreds of millions of users and are glad to see this investment pay off and our efforts recognized by the industry.”

The award was presented to the company in a ceremony at MongoDB’s annual conference, MongoDB World, in New York City.
