Remote Job Description

How do you provide data to a real-time service that monitors hundreds of thousands of servers 24 hours a day? How do you ensure data correctness in the face of infrastructure failures and network partitions, in a high-volume, low-latency environment? What should the infrastructure look like when data may double in size or in throughput on short notice? If you think you have the answers, join us on the Global Data Platform team and help us ensure that we're providing reliable data, at scale, and quickly.

What You’ll Do:
  • Keep our datastores reliable, available and fast.
  • Respond to, investigate and fix issues, whether it’s deep in the Database code or in the client application.
  • Build tooling to minimize customer-facing downtime, and scale up resources on short notice
  • Protect and ensure the consistency of customer data.
  • Work with developers to design data models, and choose the correct datastores, to support orders of magnitude more customer data and traffic.

Who You Are:
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience
  • You have a track record as an engineer in the operations of a large site
  • You value correctness and efficiency; you leave no stone unturned when diagnosing production issues
  • You handle infrastructure with code because automation lets you focus on the more difficult and rewarding problems
  • You have production experience with distributed datastores, e.g. zookeeper, cassandra, postgres, kafka, elasticsearch, redis

Datadog values people from all walks of life. We understand not everyone will meet all the above qualifications on day one. That's okay. If you’re passionate about technology and want to grow your skills, we encourage you to apply. 

Benefits and Growth:
  • New hire stock equity (RSUs) and employee stock purchase plan (ESPP)
  • Continuous professional development, product training, and career pathing
  • Intradepartmental mentor and buddy program for in-house networking
  • An inclusive company culture, ability to join our Community Guilds (Datadog employee resource groups)
  • Access to Inclusion Talks, our Internal panel discussions
  • Free, global mental health benefits for employees and dependents age 6+
  • Competitive global benefits
