Have you been running and contributing to open-source tools and OSes for as long as you can remember? Do you enjoy working on github with a community of end-users? Have you felt first-hand the pain of running and optimizing production systems? Let’s talk…

  • You excel with several low-level and scripting languages
  • Your github shows your chops and open-source contributions
  • You enjoy sharing with great docs or blog posts

  • You want to work in a fast, high growth startup environment

About Datadog

Datadog is a VC-backed Startup based in NYC, on a mission to bring sanity to Dev & Ops. We are one of the city’s most technical startups, analyzing tens of billions of events a day in real-time. And we believe the next generation of cloud architectures presents an incredible opportunity to change the way dev and ops interact with their systems.

Why join? We are a small team, work from a bright penthouse loft in the heart of Manhattan, and strive to solve hard problems sustainably while having fun in the process. We’re also growing fast and are looking for self-motivated team-players to join us, own significant parts of our technology and business, and grow with the company.
