Nine out of ten times, the "right" tool for the job is the tool that you know.
Perhaps MongoDB would be better for your job than SQL, but since you know SQL and SQL is sufficient it's a far safer bet than first messing up with what's supposed to be "the right tool".
Besides, it needs to be done yesterday, so there's no time to learn MongoDB anyway.

On a side note, none of the "full stack" developers I've met actually master the full stack.
They write JavaScript as if it's C# or Java (which it isn't) and they don't go beyond the basics of HTML and CSS.
I recently talked to a programmer who said he only wanted people with at least 10 years of experience, unless they were full stack developers, because then they knew enough.
So you want 10 years of experience in one technology, but less in a dozen combined? WTF | :WTF:

Polyglot is just really hard, because each technology is hard by itself and can take years to master.
Of course, if your definition of "sufficient" or even "mastery" is being able to run Hello World, things get a little easier...
